"The dry plate's most spectacular early use was by Eadweard Muybridge." - Life "A really marvelous series of plates." - Nature (London) "These photographs have resolved many complicated questions." - Art Journal Here is the largest, most comprehensive selection of Muybridge's famous animal photos - more than 4,000 high-speed shots of 34 different animals and birds, in 123 different types of actions. Animals are shown walking, running, leaping, flying - in typical actions. The horse alone is shown in more than 40 different ways: galloping with nude rider, trotting, pacing with sulky, cantering, jumping hurdles, carrying, rolling on barrels, and 36 other actions. All photos taken against ruled backgrounds; most actions taken from 3 angles at once: 90 degrees, 60 degrees, rear. Foreshortened views are included. These are true action photos, stopped in series, taken at speeds up to 1/2000th of a second. Actions are illustrated in series, with as many as 50 shots per action. Muybridge worked with the University of Pennsylvania for three years, made more than 100,000 exposures, and spent more than $50,000. His work has never been superseded as a lifetime reference for animators, illustrators, artists, and art directors.

This song also teac... Animals In Motion has been in the animal training and transporting business for over 40 years and we are licensed with both the USDA and Fish and Wildlife Commission. We have the largest variety of hoof stock and the only working giraffes on the East Coast.

In order to take action shots of wild animals you have to find them first. It's not as hard as you'd think.
