Typically there's two sets of shields. There's an outer "bubble" layer, and an inner "skin-tight" layer. The latter protects against impacts, and can be controlled at will. You may recall in Voy: "Equinox" that they dropped shields on specific sections of the ship (bridge, cargo bay, etc). More than likely, this was the "skin-tight" shield, not the "bubble".
