Don't Blink

Don't blink, or you might miss that kindergartner speeding past!  

We amused ourselves today by doing my homework for photography class.  The subject was shutter speed, and the exercise required I use different shutter speeds take photos of an object in motion.  I chose my five-year-old daughter, who was more than willing to run, jump, and spin so that I could "make her a ghost" with a long shutter speed.

If you have a performance-oriented little person to entertain and some basic camera knowledge, you too can make speedy ghost photographs.  I'm partial to the first one, where the white polka dots on her pink fleece created those beautiful whooshing marks across the image.  What do you think?
