This shot was pretty hard to do. I was trying to pan with the riders but they kept doing flips (who would have thought that they would do that during a trick competition) So one time I spun the camera in a circle as I panned sideways and ended up with this. The 2 Flashes were a nice surprise also.
This shot was taken with a 10-22mm lens on a very rare cloudy day in LA during the mens Vert Ramp competition. The sky turned golden/red because I change the cameras temp in camera to 10k to warm it up as I exposed for the clouds it makes a nice scene.
Even though this isnt that great of a shot, It took soooo long to isolate the rider in the small patch of grass at the home depot center. Specially with the fans running around back there. It was ethier this..or the blown out sky.
