How do you take artistic photos? How do you make car lights streak or take fancy sports shots? Turn to the internet for your free answers.

More people are into "serious" photography than ever before, and the internet is largely to thank. Whereas before, just about every family had a point and shoot film camera, very few had single lens reflex (SLR) cameras.

These days, photography has boomed, thanks to cheaper digital SLRs and the popularity of photo sharing sites, from communities based around exchanging social pictures, to platforms for showcasing photographic talent, like Flickr.

To feed this newfound curiosity, a variety of instructional and inspirational websites are popping up online.

This gallery comes from Smashing Magazine who collected 45 image blurred photography, a technique that gives photos a painted appearance due to the use of motion blur.

These photos are created by slowing the shutter speed, which makes the lighter areas appear to streak.
