Photography Opening Preview "Movement" by Algarve Photographers Group

MOVEMENT: Movement is the design element that operates in the fourth dimension: time. Movement is the process of relocation of objects in space over time. We can speak of movement as literal or compositional. The question for photographers working in static media is how to capture the sense of implied movement in the fixed image that could not literally move.
