4 Great Filters for Action Photos

The speed at which technology advances means that our phones can capture clean shots of a moving target. But is that what we always want? Sometimes pics of sports, stunts or games can come out a bit flat without that slight blur that conveys a sense of action. Not to worry though, AirBrush, the easy photo editor, has some filters to add that effect of movement into your photos.


Action Filters - Rise

First up, we’ve got the Rise Filter. Its blurring effect helps create a sense of action even on still subjects. The effect still works if the pic’s context is movement adjacent. In such cases, bump up the filter’s effect for a more dynamic look. This way you’ve got all the reward of an action shot without any of the risk.

The Revel Filter really brings back that Retro feel of a slow shutter speed to your photos. And it’s not just for an action effect but you can use this filter to convey a nostalgic feeling with your pics. With one tap, take a sleek, modern shot to something washed in more vintage tones.


Action Filters - Shock

The most intense of the action filters, Shock delivers on the look of extreme movement. For its full effects, be sure to use it on moving subjects to relay a sense of swift movement. For that same reason, Shock is great to use on sports photos with depth, as it helps draw the eye along the line of action.


Action Filters - Flutter

As the name suggests, Flutter is the most natural of the movement filters. Neutral toned and adjustable, turn down the strength of the filter to give just a hint of action to your subject. This way the details are still visible if you don’t want the blur stealing the show.
