Auckland at Speed

If you like the motion blur effect in photos like in this one. Then the easiest way to achieve it is get into a vehicle, I happened to be on a speeding boat when I took this photo. Once in motion make sure you have a reasonably slow shutter speed, nothing higher than 1/60th of a second. Point your camera in the general direction you are going and take some shots, try out some different shutter speeds to get the amount of blur right, the slower the shutter the more blur you will get.

I took this photo on the way back to Auckland one evening we had been out fishing with some friends, it was a highly unsuccessful fishing trip, we spent more time pulling up the anchor than actually fishing, the  anchor winch broke so we had to do it by hand. It still felt good to be out on the sea, I’m not the kind of person that would go off sailing into the big blue ocean, but I do like going out for an hour or 10 on a boat to do some fishing, diving or sailing.
