I had Isaac toss a gold coin into a hat; I wanted to shoot with a slow-enough shutter speed so as to capture the coin blurred in flight, while still having a chance to keep the rest in focus.

Because we were shooting in bright late-afternoon sunlight, to shoot slow with my limited aperture range, I had to have Isaac also act as a "neutral density filter" by positioning himself so as to cast a shadow on the scene.

sorry this shot does not hold much interest for me, the blur of the coin and hand seems a bit distracting /5
