2. Set Subject for
Action photography can be described as capturing the process of something

show the actual movement by panning.
Freezing a ball flying through the air doesn't look like anything is
happening. You can't see if it is going up or down or even sideways. If you
see a dog leaping into the air trying to catch the ball, then the viewer will
be able to conclude that the ball is moving towards the dog and that the dog
is in the process of catching it.
You can blur the image if you want to show movement, i.e. panning with a runner
to blur the background as well as their arms and legs. Or you can freeze the
action in a way that will make the viewer conclude that something is
happening, i.e. a rugby player flying through the air as he tackles his

month's set subject!
Think about what you want to achieve and go out and try it!!
