Two people running, on the beach, blurred motion

Photographed by Kezi Photography

Story

This was an elopement style-shoot with a real couple due to be wed in the next couple of months, it certainly proved to communicate raw intimacy and love throughout. This shot was mid-shoot where I normally find the energy, of both photographer and clients, to mirror one another at its peak. Both are into the “groove” and the energy levels are high. It’s the perfect opportunity to request that they run down the beach, barefoot, hand in hand with me running alongside. The couple’s energy naturally radiated movement and I really wanted this to transcend through the imagery.

Composition

I generally like to ‘point and shoot’ at what I am seeing unfold, not overly worrying about framing, when shooting movement. The fact that some of the couple’s faces are cut off adds to the blur of the moment. Their expressions can still be read through their smiles albeit blurred. I also fix the horizon in post if I don’t wish to have it uneven – sometimes it adds to the vibe!
