MOTION BLUR….The Japanese Drumming Association of Raleigh performed at Raleigh Wide Open yesterday. I caught one of the drummers hands in a perfect MOTION BLUR. They really put their whole bodies into the motion of drumming.

Here is the drummer:

Excellent find! I’m glad you were able to get close enough for such great shots!

I was close but I also was using my 75-300 zoom lens. I usually always have my long lens on my 50D and then use my other camera for closer shots.

I love these, the first shot especially. The motion is palpable. I wonder if female drummers are a bit out of the ordinary for Japanese drummers?

There’s a lot of energy in these pics, the drums also look beautiful.

Great capture of the motion. Japanese drumming is so cool – the Botanic Gardens by me has them every year for the Cherry Blossom Festival. The colors in this shot are great and I love how shiny the drums are.
