I hope, the title of this article may shake you also. Maybe, few of my blog reader must be surprised with this article. I have written/mentioned/warned in my previous blogs that "Never shake your camera" Also given you so many different setting to avoid camera shake. This article is about to shake/move your camera intentionally and see the results. Please read this article seriously and shake your camera and see the great results.

Let us discuss the few important steps to shake your images. Please follow the below-mentioned steps.
  1. Find the crowded location, please try to shoot at the speed at 1/10th of a second or more longer.
  2. When shooting in low light condition, Try to zoom in or zoom out when the shutter button is pressed while long exposure shoot. 
  3. Find a speedy subject like a car, running people, birds and you need to shoot them without a tripod.
  4. Always shoot hand handled, not on a tripod.
  5. Use ND filters (Neutral density filter) in a daytime to reduce exposure and speed.
  6. Set your camera focus at manual, not on autofocus, this setting will give you a good shot.
  7. Burst/continuous mode, one of the finest option to shake, move your photographs. Try this on the speedy subject like running man, moving bird, traffic, crowd etc. 
  8. Find the location like shopping market, mall, playgrounds, bus stand etc where you find plenty of the moving subject etc. 
As a photographer, our job is to create something new, eye catchy, out of the box and sometimes opposite the photography genres. Explore this new experiment and feel the difference, one more thing sometimes you get the stunning shot while shooting shaking photographs. believe me. 

Keep experimenting, Have wonderful and happy photography to you all
