Skimming the top of the water at Ka’anapali Beach.
Another shot taken during the golden hour sessions at the ’11 Maui Photo Festival last week.
This was my first real attempt at capturing a motion blur shot, although I had read about the technique a few different times. It took about 10-15 minutes to get the hang of it, and the fact that it was first thing in the morning helped with the lighting and not completely blowing it out.
It was fun trying, and after about 30 minutes I was able to get this shot here. After I was getting the results I wanted, I called it a wrap and headed back for breakfast.
I think the next time I get to shoot a hockey game – either for the high school or one of the pro games – I might give this another try.
