THIS IS NOT MOVEMENT.
Now that we have our baseline, let's proceed.
If we are going to seek out movement in its purest form, doesn't that mean we cannot "stop" the motion? Or is it the IDEA of movement that we are trying to convey when we take a photo of a subject in motion? Should we be setting our camera shutter speed so low that it captures the 27 different gymnastics a dog will perform when leaping for a ball? Or is it better to pick one of those 27 movements and capture it? See what I mean about my questions?
I read and read and read and read. What I finally think I discovered is, it's really up to you how you want to convey movement. If we want to touch the "idea" of movement, we can do that with a stationary subject if something around them is moving. The easiest way to showcase this is with water.
