AOP part 44: Unfrozen Movement
We switched outfits again, to something even less like Maja's normal wear. I don't think pastel blue would ever appear in her wardrobe!
Having gone for the frozen motion earlier I thought the pale colours and the multiple layers of the outfit would let us do the reverse and go for some motion and movement instead.
Shutter speed here is 1/20th of a second.
What I am relying on is that when Maja swings the skirt, the outer layers will move fast and be suitably blurred. At the same time, I need Maja's upper body to be kept still to give a sharp image.
In this case Maja was able to pull off the posing and moving trick very well. Although when pixel peeping you can see some very slight blur it is not noticeable at this kind of crop.
Had it not worked out, then I would have switched tack and asked for more definitive movement across the whole body so the blur was everywhere and consistent with the whole image.
This is an excerpt from "Anatomy of a Photoshoot" which gives a complete breakdown of two days shooting with a full in-depth step by step review of everything that I do.
