I always tell my Photographic Rockstar – Photography Workshop Students “The Bigger the Why, The Smaller the How!” When I know a Canadian is up, I raise my game as well, and always come up with my best shots of the day! Why? I believe its because I make the stakes in my mind bigger, I take the mindset that I must get the shot – that I have to create something incredible… and with that attitude I usually do!
One of the image I was most proud of at the Vancouver Olympics was this one, where I was able to capture the Canadian Bobsled perfectly over the Olympic rings. If any of you have tried to shoot bobsled, and the sheer speed of it, you would understand that its a really hard shot to get… those sleds move FAST!!! I had to shoot with a whopping 8000ISO on my Nikon D3s at f/4 at 1/3200sec to capture this moment in time. Its so exciting that new advancements in photography equipment and high ISO capabilities have made these incredible shots possible today.
I was also extra honoured to be able to capture some images of my friend Chris Le Bihan at his bronze medal victory. Way to go Chris!!
