In most of my sessions, I’m always trying to stop the action of my subjects rather than show the movement. I would say the majority of my clients prefer to see sharp images of themselves and of their children. Sometimes the imagery, for me, feels a little bit static. So when I had the opportunity to photograph the Keeneland Races in Kentucky a few months ago, I decided to do something a little bit different and create some images with movement in them by slowing down my shutter speed to create the feeling of moving along with the subject. This creates a very soft image, but it still has enough detail that you can see what is happening. I found that it takes a lot of practice to get it right, or at least get close enough to create the illusion of movement. Recently, I have started to look for opportunities to do this in my work. As a professional photographer, I want to raise the bar for myself and be able to show my range of abilities by creating different effects in my work. Capturing the moment is still the most important aspect of my storytelling imagery, but how I do that is what I’m trying to change.
