Andrew LaVoie with Jung Kim’s Martial Arts, breaks two boards with a double split kick during a tae kwon do exhibition at Valleyfest Saturday in Mirabeau Point Park. This is one of those snaps you just have to spray and pray. In other words, hit the shutter and fire off a blast of frames hoping you’ve captured the moment. I like the sawdust coming off the board on the right. I used my 85 mm  f/1.4  lens wide open to soften the background up and make the subject pop. With  only a few inches in focus, I caught the moment just as Andrew passed through the plane of focus. With many DSLR cameras having fast motor drives these days, it is much easier to shoot a burst of frames while letting your subject pass through a point of focus. You should get a least one useable image sharp like I did. Whew! Colin Mulvany/The Spokesman-Review Nikon D700 Nikkor 85mm f/1.4
