There is this sense of satisfaction when you manage to capture a photo at the right moment, however there are also times when you wish you could manage to capture the sequence of the action and put them all in one photo. For this specific kind of photography genre is called Sequence Photography. Sequence photography is a genre of photography that involves the technique of shooting a series of frames, where by capturing the subject in motion or movements. Sequence photo is a way of conveying motion and action as well as the process in one static image. This genre is suitable for those who love to take sports or outdoor photography.
However, while the sequence photography is mainly use for taking sports events, seeing that this genre manager to describe the process of an event more effectively as compared to other; sequence photography is often use when taking pictures of wild-life animals, one of the more common sequence photo taken of animals are birds taking flight; seeing that this will allow the scientist to study the animal’s movement and motion clearly by having most of the action captured frame by frame.
On the other hand, taking sequence photo will require not only certain photography techniques one will also need certain equipment other than a camera. The camera itself should be set with a high shutter speed for sequence photography, although the alternative to this is to use a burst mode, which is seen to produce fantastic results. However, take note when using burst mode for sequence photography because this mode create too many frames and you might end up having to remove some of them.
It is also highly recommended to use a tripod, seeing that the camera should remain in a fix position while taking the pictures. However, there are many who have managed to successfully capture sequence photos without the aid of a tripod when your camera is operating with fast shutter speed.
Another note to mention here is another way to capture sequence photo by reversing the role of the camera and the subject. In this reverse mode, the subject stays still while the camera revolves around the subject to capture it in different angles, this method is commonly adopt while taking photos of buildings or during automobile exhibitions. Therefore the advice to while shooting sequence photos is to experiment with it, since different methods will be applied during different situations and sometimes with practice or experiment one might yield different results.
