Filmmaker and animator Masoud Moein made this video transforming the lights of Tehran, in Iran, into a trippy kaleidoscope of blurred lights and moving colors.
The world goes by in a blur, but somehow, we keep our composure in the middle of it. This week's Shooting Challenge participants celebrate that. And race cars. Plenty of race cars.
When you don't want blur, it's the worst. But when you can control it—even isolate it in the frame—blur can be beautiful. For this week's Shooting Challenge, you'll capture a clear subject in a world of motion blur.
Dr. Raymond Soneira of DisplayMate breaks down misinformation about displays,and specs. Never again will you be fooled by LCD refresh rates, or stymied when trying to explain interlacing!
Take everything you think you know about displays and throw it out the window. It's time for a clinic on what display specs really mean-brace yourself for the alarming truth
Motion blur! It doesn't just ruin photos. It's also something that can be used for artistic effect, when done properly. And for the results of this week's Shooting Challenge, we've got 117 photographers who did just that.
Blur is usually something we try to avoid in photography—in lowlight especially, memories can be destroyed by this muddling of shapes and colors. But for this week's Shooting Challenge, we want you to harness motion blur's artistic power.

Motion blur is a problem in LCDs, and until now, the best solution was 120Hz processing: double the frames, and the blur tends to subside. JVC looked at the situation and said, if doubling works okay, then how 'bout we triple it? This week, at CEATEC, the result was on display. Little is known about this smooth…
