It’s not difficult to notice that this photo is pretty great… The rider and his multi-colored shirt pop out of the dark green background like crazy. The composition is super clean and all of the information necessary to bring context to the riding is there- the way the coping hugs the bottom of the frame is my favorite part. It’s a rather dialed invert as well.
“This is James Van De Kamp doing another ridiculously folded table top. Sometime in early April we got some really good weather for a while, so we got out to Gleneagles bowl in West Vancouver for a day. James is one of my favourite people to shoot with. He’s incredibly dialed, so it makes it really easy. I recently picked up the Sigma 50mm f/1.4, and I’m incredibly happy with the way it performs with natural lighting. This photo was shot at 1/4000s at f/2.8 and 160ISO on my 7D. Nothing else to really say, just a bunch of dudes on bikes having a fun session.”
