When you start shooting video, remember this important concept.…Photography stops time, while video records over time.…In this movie, we are going to look at another key difference between video…and still photography…that is also related to time, but in a different way.…Now we are going to look at movement over time.…Since still photography is about stopping movement, you cannot actually show…movement in a photograph.…Well I know some of you are thinking "Gee, I could shoot with a slow shutter…speed and show a blur to capture movement."…That's true you can, but you can't actually show the movement in action.…
All you can do is show an interpretation of the movement, but it's still stopped.…There is nothing moving in a finished photograph about stopped action on the…sports field or dancers on a stage.…They will both show something about movement in the photograph.…On the other hand, video shows us movement in action actually happening.…We can watch as dancers make their moves to the music.…We can watch a football play develop on the field.…
