When I’m photographing portraits and weddings I generally do not want to use all the speed my camera can give me. If I do I know I’ll end up with a lot of pictures that need to be removed during editing simply because they look exactly like a half dozen others. Life certainly moves fast – but in most cases not quite that fast.
In the world of competitive swimming races are often won and lost in much less than a single second. The five images below of a swimmer swimming butterfly were taken in a single second and I love how they show how quickly the sport moves.
