Happy Thanksgiving week to all of our United States based readers. This week's list is full of excitement due to the ever popular "action" theme. The submissions covered a wide range of movement and activities that we may all need to partake in after today's feast. Hope you like the list and we'd love to have you join in.
Actions shots take some practice to pull off. Once you get your settings dialed in for the type of shot you want it is all about timing. Fast shutter speeds to freeze the motion are sometimes captured in burst mode to maximize the possibility of a great shot. Long exposure shots are also great for capturing action sometimes but pose a risk-reward scenario trying to capture the motion just right without missing the opportunity.
This Week's Top 10:
Being a parent might have swayed me a bit to choose this lively action shot. Look at how much fun this future daredevil is having. Great job capturing such a memorable moment.
Be sure to check out our ever-growing list of entries here: #weeklyFstop on Instagram A big thanks to everyone for joining in. Don't forget, my opinion is subjective, so if you think I missed some good ones feel free to share them in the comments.
What is This Week's Theme?
Given the United States Holiday let's follow suit and make the theme:
I know I'm thankful for my family, my town, my camera, and really quite a lot of things. Hopefully, you all have a lot to be thankful for too so we will see a wide variety of entries.
The hashtag to use is #weeklyFstop. If you are tagging an old shot that is fine, but please try and keep it to one shot picked for the theme per week.
Here are the previous week's results for anyone who may have missed:
Remember, there is no guarantee posting a photo will result in it being featured. If we get going and you fall short, keep shooting and try and learn from the photos that are selected. We can all learn to like our work a little less sometimes in order to grow. If anyone has any suggestions or ideas feel free to contribute in the comments.
