We have reviewed some of the more common ways to handle motion on our shots, but there are an endless number of other possibilities for creating a sense of motion too. Let your subject move through the photograph. This can really send a cool, edgy message. Have your subject stand still and let the action move around your subject. Move your camera. You can move it to create a zoom effect, or sideways for a bit of motion blur, or jiggle it for just that hint of edgy.
Zoom in or out while you're taking the shot. It's a bit poetic in my mind. As with all photo techniques, these will eventually become easier to execute, and you'll have yet another tool for enhancing your compositions.
