Try to photograph your subject keeping their motion in mind — whether it’s waiting for the perfect moment when a stranger is passes through a beam of light crossing the street or capturing that cyclist ringing his bell as he whizzes past you. And of course use your camera’s tools to your advantage: explore the long-exposure settings to see what you can come up with or try out burst mode on your mobile phone…be creative!
