What: bike shot
Why this angle: the air + the trail tells a good story. plus all those vertical lines kept the scene clean. Nice light too…looking up really “opened up” the image. Simplicity almost always wins – in this case it does.
How: I laid under the jump and motor-drived the action at 9fps. we shot several attempts to ensure the rider was in the right spot relative to the rest of the scene…plus we added in the little bike tilt for some flair.
Gear n such: Nikon D3s. Nikkor 14-242l8 lens shot at 15mm. ISO 800. f3.5 1/1000sec (Here’s a link for you gear folks)
Feel free to let me know what you think. Or just tell me you like it.
I like it. Cool angle 🙂
Doing my first mountain bike in the woods test shoot tomorrow. so thanks for the inspiration 🙂
I have watched “boston legal” ever since in my college days, i love to watch courtroom drama,,
I love how you can see the trees and the rest of the trail as well as the perspective of the photo. On the other hand, being able to see the rider’s face is always an important factor to downhill bike photography.
Super duper shot, really love this one!
