Story behind the photograph
Today instead of shooting from outside I’ve ventured on ice and tried to get some very close shots with a 50mm f/1.4 lens. This proved to be a lot more difficult as the corner speed at short distance seems to be even higher then shooting with a telephoto lens from outside the rink.
My best shot of the night would be this one of pocket-rocket and future speed skating star Krysia. This eve smiling girl really means business when she skates and you can see the raw energy in her dynamic movements.
