Sequence Photography

Have you ever thought about doing sequence photography when you are out and about. This comes in the form of using your fast burst mode in your camera or your x amount frames per second within your camera.

What both Vicki and I like about doing this on a particular subject is that it enables to help bring the shot alive, it adds some emotion to the scene as you see it unfolding before your eyes.

We are both always looking out to capture sequences that help tell the story better.

There are many different subjects that you can do this on but in this example, we are photographing wildlife in Africa.

For those new to photography you need to make sure you have  a camera that will capture a fast frame rate and the other equally important point is to make sure you are using a good combination of lens and camera that has a quick auto focus . This is important as you won’t miss out on any sequence that you are capturing.

If your card is not fast enough, if your card doesn’t write fast enough and your auto focus is not quick enough, then you will fail to nail the sequence of shots.

This is  simple concept to experiment with ,  so the next time you see something happening, shoot  with the intention of capturing that sequence and to show the emotion of the build up in the images.

Once you do one, you’ll be hooked as it will set you apart from others and it is a great way to capture feeling and emotions in your pictures. Click to enlarge the pics below.

Pete's photography is self taught. As a young child photography was an interest. His passion for the varying landscapes of Oz comes from frequent visits as a youngster, to his Gandparent's sheep farm in Barmera, a small country town in South Australia. Pete Dobré is a Freelance Photographer who blazes the trail for 6 months each year, capturing awe-inspiring images. Pete's work expresses his creative flair, emotions and love for the natural scapes of Australia. He remembers the hot day when he was 8, leaving town for the farm. His parents had an old car. Within about 2 kilometres of reaching the farm gate, they were bogged on a small red sand dune. The flies were buzzing continuously and the heat was beating down. Sticks, leaves and branches were wedged under the back tyres, to get the car moving. His mum was in a panic but Pete thought that it was exciting. From that moment he knew that he loved being out in creation, with the sense of adventure in the wild. This is where Pete's passion began. Photography for Pete is an expressive means for visual communication. He says, 'There is never a boring moment in my work. There is always something to photograph and I love being creative. The only limit to creativity is a lack of creativity.' Pete's aim as a photographer is to present images that provoke and stimulate the mind, to capture God's awesome creation and to share this with others. If Pete can do a little justice to God's creativity, then he is quietly satisfied. As a photographer Pete's inspiration and passion for his work comes from knowing God who created everything in the beginning. Knowing God, the Creator gives more substance and meaning to what he captures on film. Pete sees his role as freezing a moment in time and history which will never be repeated exactly the same again. The light, clouds and seasons will always be different. Pete's love for natural conditions at different times of the day, displaying varying moods and cloud formations makes his work very special and eye catching.
