The best thing to me about shooting a photo is not capturing the moment as you see it but more so as you want it to appear. I already saw this happen in front of my face so I want to add light and make images look mysterious like the images I envision in my mind before I go out to shoot a photo. I like to make the photo not take the photo. Life already happened so why repeat it? Rob and I went out one cold winter morning and did a quick rake and I shot 6 photos with six different lenses. To me that is how I learn and its fun learning when you have a good friend like Rob who charges and never stops smiling. Roll on Reggie
Selected by Matt Wragg - This is a nice example of restrained lighting, with the big light behind the rider and a strobe for fill. If anything the strobe is a bit too subtle here, but that is always preferable to over the top, harsh light.
