Last week I went to watch the Salt City Derby Girls scrimmage, and they let me in the rink to take some photos. It was my first time at a roller-derby event so I didn’t know what to expect, and ended up leaving with some pretty cool photos. I found that I had a lot more fun with slow shutter speeds and panning than I did when I tried to freeze the action. This is one of the panning ones that I like best … it’s a little bit “unconventional” for a sports shot but I really like the fact that it’s kinda “artsy” and generic.

I have a few other good shots from that night and I’ll post them here throughout the week.
