Top Five Pics of the Week {Crazy Days of Summer: Week Eight}

Motion is defined as "the act or process of changing position or place". Sounds simple enough, but it proves to be quite the difficult task in terms of capturing it in a photograph. And yet you still managed to deliver some great images this week.

Here's a quick rundown of some useful motion photography tips to bookmark for future reference:

Kristi from Live and Love Out Loud shared a cool tutorial for creating a spinning panning effect and a great example using Curious George.

Audrey of The Daily Wyatt shared a tutorial of her cheat spinny photo. A must see! (1st photo below.)

Christine from More To Me shared her camera settings for her cool streak of light from a moving automobile. (2nd photo below.)

Jaymi of shared another one of her fabulous jumping sunset pics. If you missed it, make sure to check out her jumping silhouette tutorial she shared a few weeks ago. (5th photo below.)

And (insert drum roll) here they are...
