Here are some of my favourite Olympic reaction shots where I captured the E-MOTION or "Energy In Motion" of the moment through photography.
When you look at these images, how do they make you feel?
Photography is an incredible art form in that it records the energy of the moment. Thats why when we look at a photograph we can feel some of that energy. We can relate to the subject and their experience.
Had a wonderful day shooting Audi FIS Ski Cross World Cup and the Monster Energy Snowmobile Freestyle at the Nakiska Snowdown in Kananaskis today. We had some blue skies, good snow and fantastic athletes to photograph! I found ski cross required mored depth of field to capture several racers in sharpness and shot most of my images at around 800 ISO f/8 at 1/3200 of a second to freeze the action with my Nikon D4 and D800e cameras. The BIG AIR Snowmobile event was so visually exciting with the epic stunts and mountain backdrop. I shot this primarily on my D800E so that I could record all 36 megapixels of crushing detail to illustrate this sport. I was crazy impressed by the mental toughness and fearlessness of the athletes to preform such gravity-defying feats!
Check out a few of the images below. More to come soon!!!
"Nikon D800 - One Camera: Two Perspectives" is a video shot entirely with the Nikon D800 HD-SLR by world-class professional photographer, Kristian Bogner, and award-winning cinematographer, Kirk Neff. While in Canmore, Alberta, Kristian and Kirk worked with Canadian athletes to capture breathtaking stills and videos with the D800. The result of their creative genius -- combined with the spectacular quality the D800 provides -- is this one-of-a-kind video. We hope you enjoy it. View More Images Here
