Aqua Man

Sometimes I like to mix things up and go with a slow shutter speed to create a more painterly look for sports photography. For this shot, I went with 1/6th shutter speed and panned meaning I moved my camera sideways to “follow” the swimmer from left to right. That’s how I got the water to blur (painterly) and the subject (swimmer) is mostly in focus so that you can still tell it’s a man swimming.

  1. Texture is fantastic in this shot. I am a swimmer and want you to take pictures of me swimming so I can look like this. 🙂

    1. Sure, where’s your pool?
