I've had a few recent assignments that called for a real high-key, natural look that incorporates some motion blur. It's always a bit tricky to get that spontaneous look while at the same time staging the action.
I shot a few hundred images on this roller skating shoot too keep my percentage of keepers up. Some were too blurry or didn't look spontaneous enough. They were moving and I was moving along with them, composing and shooting on the fly trying to get good exposure, a good background and just enough movement in the photo.
It was nice to do something different from the real heavy ponderous portraits I've been doing of late and to do something fast moving and chaotic.
