Shooting a moving object

I wanted to try out different shutter speeds on the ceiling fan. I wanted to know at what speed the fan is frozen, with a good result. And at what speed I would get a cool blurry effect from the fan. The frozen picture is shot at 1/500 and the blurry one is shot at 1/30.

They are both converted to grayscale to focus on the light and fan. The pictures themselves aren't very exciting, and they are way to dark. But this was a first test of the fan. I'll think of how to get a better lighting in the room, or maybe try to take a picture without the lights on in the fan.

At least I now have a feeling of what it takes to freeze a moving fan :)
