The beauty used this technique to give her pictures a quirky visual effect as she purposefully blurred herself in motion. If you want to click mesmerising photos like Sonalee, here are a few tips that will help you get started with this technique of photography.

1. Decrease your shutter speed

Firstly, begin by adjusting the shutter speed of your camera. This is the most critical aspect while capturing motion blur as it requires a longer exposure time. So you need to slow down the shutter speed of your camera to get this long exposure. A slower shutter speed will cause your subject to blur making it look like it’s in motion.

2. Adjust lighting

The next thing that you need to do is adjust the lighting. Slow shutter speed allows more light to enter the camera, making your image look overexposed. You will have to make sure that the lighting is just perfect in your environment. A dark, dimly lit room can also work in capturing a motion blur selfie like Sonalee. You can also adjust the aperture and ISO settings of your camera.

3. Stabilise your camera

Stabilising your camera is a must while capturing a motion blur photo. We suggest that you use a tripod to secure your camera and get the desired angles required for your selfie. Securing it to a stable object will take away the unusual camera shake that happens mostly while capturing such images.

4. Use filters

A final way to get yourself the perfect motion blur image is by using neutral density (ND) filters that are available in the market. If tagged along with your camera, these filters can reduce the overexposure of photos.
