Ragnar the rider

My brother, Ragnar, wanted me to shoot a few pictures of him riding his bike.

He insisted on doing some wheelies, when I on the other hand wanted a few still shots.

Well, these are a few of the usable results

I proudly present: Ragnar and his bike

Clear, focused wheelie shot.

Fast shutterspeed, open aperture.

Close, relatively slow shutterspeed

Action shot #1

Very long shutterspeed and rear flash.

Braking on the spot

Action shot #2

Long shutterspeed, rear flash and following camera

Rider portrait #2. “what are you looking at?”

Rider portrait #3. Or is this a bike portrait?

Action shot #3. Very unfocused, pulls forth the speed and action

My personal favorite. Ground angle, action and total focus on the face. Additional strong yellow/green colors to the bottom right and very clear blue sky

      I admire how beautifully you used the nice lighting as well as the impressive perspectives and striking movements to create these dynamic and gorgeous pictures.
      Superb set, really.
