Shawn Finn: Backside 360
Rider is a bit blurry but I dig it anyway
full res at www.flickr.com/photos/davedphoto
Been slackin' with the photos lately?
haha so bad... i work 50 hour weeks in the winter and snowboard any time im not working... shooting photos in the snow sucks, its way too cold
I didn;t even see this in my contacts when I was on flickr a few seconds ago, weird....
did you shoot at 1/250 for the sync speed?
Thats at Springs I'm assuming?
They didn't have anything setup when I was there other than the little park. I plan on going back soon to get a fix though.
Snowboarding looks mad dope, one day I gotta get out north and give it a try.

Same kicker that I tore my meniscus and sprained my knee on. Come take blade photos Dave, working is not an excuse.
Ive been off the high speed flash ting for a while now but I believe it's the flash that freezes movement not your shutter speed when using flashes, the shorter the flash duration the sharper it will be therefore the lowest power setting on your flash will be the fastest duration giving you a clearer image. My spidey senses tell me Im wrong somewhere but it's worth looking into.
Yeah you really should, its amazing. and something that is also amazing is that photo. Very sick.Originally Posted by matt genna
That's all true, but the catch is that shooting outside, during the day, on snow, and so far from the rider, with a wide lens, all mean that a normal hotshoe flash's lower power settings aren't going to even show up. So you can double them up, shoot at full or near-full power, or use "real" studio strobes (Alien Bees or whatever), which I don't think Dave has.Originally Posted by nb
So it seems that Dave did the best he could with what he has. Switching to rear-curtain sync would help with the blur on his leading edge a bit, but it makes timing the shot a little harder.
I don't know where I read this but I remember reading something something about the further you push your AB the shorter the flash duration will be. As opposed to normal flashes. I know the 400 has the fastest duration... well, the Einstiens do but I don't even know if those are out yet.Originally Posted by al dolega
Yea, I don't really know anything about studio strobes either, but I've read similar things about them, that the lower settings actually have a longer duration. I also know that I WANT, but cannot afford
alien bees = sweet and good for snowboarding
nikon sb28's from 2001 = not so much
