Photography tutorial: how to freeze motion

Learn how to capture subjects or objects that move very fast with Jesús G. Pastor's techniques for photographing objects in motion

One of the endless possibilities that photography offers is to capture the movement, that is, capture objects or subjects that pass very fast in front of our camera. At first glance, it may seem like a challenge, but following some simple steps, we can freeze an entire scene or even just the most dynamic subject on a photograph.

We will explain these two techniques, and how to use them on your SLR camera, guided by Spanish photographer Jesús G. Pastor (@jesus_g_pastor), who has worked for several Spanish national newspapers (La Vanguardia, Public, Metro, Avui, Interviu, Human Journalism, Huffington Post ) and international publications (Travel Africa Magazine, the Sunday Times, Corbis, Demotix, UNHCR), as well as companies, NGOs and of course Domestika, where he teaches the course Introduction to Digital Photography.
