Mt. Snow Freeski Open
Posted By: reeftool, 03-26-2009, 08:41 AM

Newschoolers Ski magazine use 3 of my shots from last weekends superpipe competition in their news coverage. I was there shooting pictures of my daughter and her friends, normal Dad stuff and getting in some skiing too and the Rep asked me if I could send in some halfpipe shots because he didn't have any. They used 3 of them. This is a first for me.Mount Snow Freeski Open - News - Skiing's Online Community - Newschoolers.com

Cool! I'm assuming your 3 are the ones with the watermark?

Yes, sorry I should have mentioned that.
They are the last 3. The other shots are saturdays slopestyle. My daughter wasn't competing in that event so I wasn't there. She also finished on the podium in third place.

Thanks for the comments. They are fun events indeed. I don't get to see her compete very often because most of these events are out west. This weekend she is in Squaw Valley in California.

Yours are very fine, the other are more ordinary. What lens did you use ?

I used a Sigma 70-300, the non APO cheap one. As long as you don't shoot with it wide open it does ok. I shot most of the shots at f 11. A lot of my shots had trees in the background and a little bokeh would have been nice but I have learned from experience that I will get soft looking pics at f 6.3. Also the skiers were coming towards me in the pipe so I wanted as much depth of field as I could get to keep the skier in focus.
