#iamthespeedhunter: The Slow Shutter Theme

February has arrived and with it, a new #IAMTHESPEEDHUNTER theme for you to go out there and get dirty with. From here on in, we’re going to give you a new theme at the start of the month and publish the results at the end of the same month, just so you have plenty of time to get out there and shoot.

As you can tell from the title, this month’s theme is all about dropping your shutter speed into unchartered territories. We’re not talking about regular panning shots but something a lot of people shy away from.

When you drop your shutter speed to levels where nine out of ten images are unusable, you enter a world where that tenth image becomes something special.

It doesn’t have to involve panning or action either, feel free to interpret the theme in whatever you want. Set your cameras to shutter priority and get slow.

To contribute, e-mail your submissions to iamthespeedhunter@dev.speedhunters.com with the subject line ‘IATS – The Slow Shutter Theme’ along with your name and some details about the car or event.

Do they have to be photos taken after the theme is posted or can they be previous work?

Liking this idea a lot. Out of interest, do you know why your FlickR page is blocked in the Middle-East? I'm out there at the moment so having to submit stuff through instagram.

i guess thats the next thing on my list!

Nice theme, i will require a bit more of work as usual

Do you will still post a free-themed weekly selection ?

Is it just the group page or the entire Flickr domain? I'd have to check but I'm sure we have members regularly submitting from the Middle East and it goes without saying that we have no areas restricted.

 @Chris Besset Absolutely! I'm trying to put more structure into the IATS stories which should result in a special theme on a Tuesday and weekly round-up on each Wednesday.

 @Jochem Some really impressive submissions already, folks have hit the ground running!

 It's just the group itself, I can access FlickR fine. Instagram is fine for thumbnails but forces a square crop and ruins composition for images I've shot with a more conventional crop in mind. It's not a big drama, just wondered if something could be done if you weren't aware of it.
