Commuting in Amsterdam is done at speed, on bikes! You’ll need a fast shutter speed to catch this guy speeding over the bridges of Amsterdam’s canals. To achieve a shot like this, suggest you use burst mode to take a ton of photos and make sure you don’t miss the money shot. Scoopshooter: Júnia Neumann
This arty shot works because the photographer, Photogjul, has used the handle bars to frame the picture and focused in the middle of the photo, leaving the foreground slightly out of focus. A fluke? Perhaps, but it’s a winner in our book. Scoopshooter: Photogjul
Oh a creative commuting photo (love it). Sometimes trying something different can make an otherwise bland subject really pop in a photo. To achieve a photo like this, make sure the lens isn’t focusing on the foreground or the nearest hand-grab will be in focus and the view beyond will be out of focus. Scoopshooter: Omar Velazquez
It’s always good to see something ugly photographed beautifully. We’ll never look at an escalator in the same way again. Remember to play with angles, experiment, take a few shots and adjust the settings as you go. It’s amazing what you can create if you spend 20 seconds on a photo, rather than the 0.5 that we have become accustomed to. Scoopshooter: Anon
