Capturing motion is all matter of experimentation and some luck. Working in shutter priority mode, I usually find the appropriate shutter speed fairly quickly and bracket from there. The rest is panning with the motion, trying to get enough definition and sharpness in the right places so that the image is not just a big messy blur. In this case I exposed for 0.3s at f6.3, ISO 800. The challenge during indoor events is that I have to use ambient light and long focal lenghts so I am forced to use high ISO speeds which produce lots of noise. I try to turn that drawback into an advantage, utilizing the noise for a stylistic treatment during processing. My tool of choice is Lightroom. See the whole series here: Rhythm & Hues
