Wondering why I’m mtb it seems to be acceptable to have the ‘guy in the sky’ photos. I come from other sports like snowboarding and skiing where this would never be ok. Sure it happened in the early days of action sports photography but never see it anymore.
The jump/ lip and/ or landing should be in every frame for a point of reference in my opinion.
Those shots without any lip or landing look so bad to me. A major faux pas in most other sports but biking.
Anyway. Thought I’d ask.
Maybe I’m the one who doesn’t get it. It is art and subjective after all. It’s just that those type of pics would never make it past editor in the snowboard world and if they did it would get skewered.
