MTB Dirt Jumping in Santa Fe, New Mexico

Discussion in 'Sports Photography' started by newbie builder, Jul 6, 2008.

  1. Recently took a trip to Santa Fe and got a chance to shoot some dirt jumpers--I've been wanting to shoot some bikers for a while now so it was great to spend an evening having a little fun. First shots are all natural light, but there are a few at the end where I used two SB800s to help light up the biker after the sun had set....
    C&C would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    These are nice. Reminds me when I use to race and 10 yrs younger and 40 lbs lighter.
     
  5. Thanks for the kind comments everybody! Last two are my favorite as well, I was thrilled with how they came out, especially given that it was my first time shooting any bikers....
    I ride though so I just made sure to look at all the magazines that I had at home with dirt jumping pictures and just tried to keep that in mind when I shot, and I think it definitely helped.
