Action photography is a medium through which we can convey the motion of our surroundings. Some things like plants grow slowly while others like humans and machines work fast. The whole concept of action photography revolves around a subject which a photographer wants to cover and the result of this photography is always pleasing. Action photography is a field which shows you how a particular scene looks like when you freeze it. Some subjects may convey a message while other subjects are captured to please the viewer.

In this method we get a message that the motion is still on. This could be achieved when in cricket a batsman is hitting a ball with the bat. That is burring of the motion! Ofcourse, both the ways can be combined together to get some amazing results Whatever the objective of photographer is, action photography always looks adventurous to the viewer and here are some Stunning Examples of Timely Taken Action Photography for your inspiration.
