I took this series of shots at the local mall skating rink. This was inspired by Henri Cartier-Bresson's photos, with his aesthetic (and somewhat accidental) use of motion blur and his concept of the decisive moment on some of his photos. Eadweard Muybridge comes into mind too for the pseudo-image sequence. Ain't really the most showy move in ice skating but I like the sequence and the silhouette-like lighting of the model because of her all-black outfit contrasting the white ice background.
