I planned to take this photograph with my shadow in the background. I sat on the swing which hangs from our apple tree, with my camera on my lap to prevent it showing in my shadow. Sitting on the swing is my favourite spot in my garden, which I wanted to document. I was inspired by sports photography, which often uses a slow shutter speed and a panning motion to show and emphasise movement.
