The goal in the pole vaulting photo was to get the coach and the athlete in the same photo. With Babits on the opposites side of the runway and a lower shutter speed, I was able to catch the vaulter in a blur as she passed by the camera. I knew her colorful shirt would help the image. This is the opposite of a pan shot; here the subject is blurred and the background is sharp.
