Bacon Blur

"Dwayne Bacon #7 of the Charlotte Hornets shoots in front of Ian Mahinmi #28 of the Washington Wizards during the second half at Capital One Arena on March 31, 2018 in Washington, DC."

Every once in a while a photographer will think, "Why haven't I shot this image in the past?"

Sports photographers can go years shooting in the venues season after season. While there are variables that change those environments, for the most part they remain the same.

So when they decide to shoot differently, it becomes fresh.

But in that same moment, they can also ponder, "How can I make this image better?"

The above is a photograph I shoot at least once a game of recent. A slow shutter speed that tries to grab the strobe lights of other photographers shooting the same moment.

I'm always trying to better the already graphically compelling frame. Whether it's a slower shutter speed, working with different jersey colors, players, or moments.

Sooner than later it will become perfect for an instant, then I'll go back to trying to better it.
