A Photo A Week Challenge – A Bursting Focus

Bursting into the focus!

The burst mode, or continuous shooting mode, in photography is a great way to capture the scene, one frame at a time.

Normally used when subject is in motion, it gives an amazing view of the subject.

I’m in love with this mode and loves to use it whenever there’s a perfect scene in front of me.

But mostly like when I’m on the road.


I captured this in 2019 when I was going back home from my office and decided to play a little with the burst feature of my smartphone camera app.

Out of all the 20 frames I captured of these 2 motorbike riders, this frame is the best, in my opinion, as the subject is focused primarily while blurring rest of the scene in perfect harmony.

And yes, the guy in the back isn’t wearing a helmet, which isn’t a good practice. And I should’ve shouted over him for this but both of them were in more hurry than me 🙂

    Hammad, how did you get a clip of your post to show up as a comment on LWPD instead of just a pingback?

      This post, Hammad. I saw it on one of the challenge posts as a comment but it looked more like a clip of the post than a pingback. I have been seeing this more often recently on wordpress comments but I have no idea how it is done. Just wondering. If I remember whose site I saw it on, I’ll let you know.
