Freez­ing the Blur

The scenes of Masters Week.

Golf Digest (Malaysia) - - Contents - BY DOM FURORE

there’s no run­ning at Au­gusta Na­tional, but at last year’s Masters, Golf Digest Se­nior Staff Photographer Dom Furore cap­tured the flow of the crowd by us­ing long ex­po­sures. “Gen­er­ally four to 15 sec­onds,” he says. “On hole No. 2, I stacked sev­eral images to get blur in dif­fer­ent ar­eas be­cause the crowd moves in dif­fer­ent places at dif­fer­ent times.” Au­gusta Na­tional bans tripods for pho­tog­ra­phers at the Masters, but our man leaned against trees for sup­port: “The sur­pris­ing thing was how much those huge trees vi­brate on a windy day, and we had a cou­ple of those. I had to shoot a lot of frames to get a sharp one.” Dom, who has been pho­tograph­ing the scenes at Au­gusta Na­tional since 1986, tweaked his tech­nique all week to find the best lo­ca­tions and light. Masters Week is al­ways a blur, but as you can see here, he never lost fo­cus.
