Soaring High
Posted By: codiac2600, 05-22-2009, 12:09 AM

I love shooting people and enjoy it so much more when they are doing what they do best.

This again is outside my bubble but I used to read skate mags back in high school so after the initial breaking of the ice I did my thing...

Had the D700 with me on this shot as the FPS is more fitting, but there may have been a secret camera along side

Great action-stopping shot this one.
And so pleasantly lit too.
Excellent job, Chris.

Beautiful image Chris but I'll have to ask: Since you had two cameras along which one was at eye level, the D700 or the secret one? :-)

Awesome picture. I'd have to try it myself one day.

Nice capture, but I see some sort of haloing around his right arm.

Great image. The haloing is probably the movement the flash was not able to freeze.

I love this shot!!!

What was the setup? External flash/on-board flash? Manual/auto flash? I ask because I'm doing work freezing motion using flash

Would love to see some more from this series. Are these worked on in photoshop?
