Medium framing action shots are one of my favorite styles of photography. At Biggest Little Fur Con 2017, I captured this fursuiter, whose badge name reads “Robocop,” checking out a board game in the game area.
This shot is one of my favorites, because it shows the suiter curiously checking out a board game while not making direct eye contact with the camera. The horizontal “landscape” format is my preferred framing for action scenes, whereas I like to use vertical “portrait” for its namesake–portraits. I stepped back to have the framing go medium, so there is some establishment.
Unfortunately, at BLFC 2017, I shot mostly at f/2.8 with a slow shutter speed, typically between 1/30 and 1/60th of a second, which made much of my images a little soft.
