We’ve all taken a blurry photo before and have quickly deleted it before anyone can criticize it. However, sometimes a bit of motion blur can be a good thing as it adds character to the photo and tells a story. There are different ways to create a photo showing motion blur. Slower shutter speeds, panning, zooming or simply by just having an unsteady hand.

Here are 25 excellent motion blur photos to get you inspired. Hopefully this collection of photos would get you to think outside the box when it comes to taking a blurry photo.
