Dave Seoane at Sugar Bowl for FLF Films’ “Snowboarders in Exile” (1993)

This photo was from the second attempt. On the first, camera was setup shooting straight on into the rider (further left). The Ah Ha moment was that if it doesn’t work the first time, try, try again. By moving 90 degrees to the right, the lighting was more dramatic and the action backdrop was a clear blue sky. Lens change was from 85mm to ~24mm which altered the overall look. Dave was more comfortable with the jump – higher, faster, further!

Canon EOS 1 with 20-35mm F2.8L (Kodachrome 64)
