Photo of the Week: Brendan Mulrooney

Paul Horan-Euro (1 of 1) 640

I was immediately drawn to the composition of this photo, with the strong verticals and power lines forming a sort of arch around the rider, almost sprouting from the van in the corner. The pale blue sky complements the pale yellow barrier that frames the action and does a good job of attracting attention.

“This photo was shot during a 10 day trip from Philly to New Orleans, Paul Horan and I took back in July. We found this spot thanks to some vague directions from Steve Crandall that Paul was able to decipher. It ended up being a bit harder to ride than we thought it would be but Paul still managed to pop some nice euros out of it. I used one flash to the right hand side of the photo, up high on a light stand, to try and highlight Paul and separate him a bit from the background. When I went to get in position for the photo I almost laid in dog poop which would have been a total bummer and I probably wouldn’t have shot the photo after that. Thank god it didn’t go down like that.

Shot with:

Nikon D5000

Tamron 28-70mm f2.8 @ 40mm

F/11 @ 1/250

ISO 200

SB 800 flash triggered with Pocket Wizard Plus X”
