Unusual Chess Moments

Rare captures

My guilty pleasure is to make weird photos during chess tournaments. I'm always looking for weird angles, reflections, and unusual moments. So I'm always grateful when I can find mirrors, windows and sunglasses in the playing hall.

One interesting experiment was a long exposure during the start of a blitz game, which shows some pieces as half-transparent.

I've also taken photos of middle fingers (chess player's favorite pointing finger) and the position of hands when chess players walk around during the game. I hope to use these collections at some special occasion.  

One regret I have is that I have never collected bloopers like really bad facial expressions.
