Groomsman dances with motion blur at wedding reception

Late in this wedding reception in the Grand Hall of the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, Washington, wedding guests took turns dancing solo in the middle of a ring of their friends and family. I gained access to the second-floor balcony to capture this photo of one of the groomsmen taking his turn. I used a slow shutter speed to capture motion blur, combined with a burst of flash to freeze an instant of the scene and provide some sharpness to her face and the others in what would have otherwise been a total blur.
