Mountain Biking at Gap Creek

Mountain Biking at Gap Creek

 

Spent a couple of hours with Alex Sheppard this week trying to get some action shots of him mountain biking out at ‘Pipeline’ in Gap Creek Reserve.

 Most of the shots here are using a panning technique – slowing the shutter speed down to 1/20 – 1/50 second and allow the camera to follow the rider. This is what gives the streaked background effect.

I was also using some off camera flash to fill in the details as the sun was behind Alex and giving a nice backlight but without flash the side facing the camera would have been in shadow.
