link to the copied prompt body below for MOTIONOur lives are made up of big events and tiny moments. Ultimately, life is fleeting, and oftentimes it’s these small moments, this motion, that we love to document.

Today’s Tip: Movement is a great way to convey time and fleetingness. If you’d like to play with motion, try the following:

For all cameras and cameraphones:

Turn your auto-flash off, even in low-light conditions: I took the image of the Sufi dancer in the dark, with no flash. A bit grainy, it’s not the best quality — yet the fuzziness evokes being transfixed in that moment.While photographing moving subjects,use a tripod or lay your device on a surface to keep it still: for the image above, I rested the camera on an empty seat.Experiment with panning: pan your camera across your scene while following your moving subject. It takes practice, but if done right you can produce images with clear subjects against blurred backgrounds
