rugby action, club match, Durban South AfricaThis is an old photograph of a club rugby match, taken many years ago when I lived in Durban on South Africa’s east coast. It was one of a series that I took of various sports, experimenting with slow shutter speeds to emphasise the movement and sense of speed.

I obviously wasn’t using digital in those days and the original was shot using colour negative film. For this image, I copied the colour print using my Canon 450D camera. I occasionally photograph artwork for a client, for which I convert my sitting-room into a basic studio, using two studio flashes with umbrellas.

The image, in addition to the blur from panning the camera, has been digitally simplified.
