This is a photo blog of self expression. All the images I post are self assignments driven by the need for more creativity in my life. This is my escape from the everyday shooting as a professional photographer.

Stop Action Swimmer
Sports photography can be approached in two different ways. Stop action (fast shutter speeds) or showing motion (slow shutter speeds) are the two different ways of capturing interesting sports images. In this picture of a swimmer I used a shutter speed of 1/500 to freeze the swimmer and the water revealing what the eyes could not see. When using shutter speeds of 1/60 or slower motion can be shown .
