Sequence photography is a popular shooting technique used by several photographers, in which they capture a series of photos of a person or an object in continuous motion. This method of shooting gives movement to static images and is an effective type of photography to use for sports, dance or any other motion-based activities. Observing a merged photo sequence drastically changes the viewer’s perception from say what they would only see in a single image. The step-by-step actions occurring in the image are separated and displayed side by side and this makes the viewer of the image feel like they are a part of the experience.
It’s great to use sequence photography when shooting extreme sports, such as snowboarding, skateboarding, surfing and motocross. One of the images displayed by Inspirationfeed.com features a snowboarder as he approaches a box ramp, jumps onto it and slides off the end. To be able to see the journey he takes in one frame from beginning to end to conquer this trick might give others a better idea of how to approach the trick for themselves.
