Shaun Palmer at Donner Ski Ranch (1985)
Ah-Ha: This was one of my earliest snowboarding photographs following the Kidwell shot on the same day, so the ah-ha moment was again, “wow, this is awesome! What did I do?” Learn and analyze your successes and your mistakes. Learn how to use the equipment your have before adding bells and whistles that’ll make your work outstanding. Success = super-talented rider, slow, grain-free film, perfect exposure and focus, perfect photographer location, normal lens, lots of luck!
