Action and sports shots often require prep and finesse, as Paul Scott demonstrates with our Day taker. He shot self-titled “Adam Keys—Ollie Over Rail” using Canon EOS 60D, one year ago today. Vitals: f/3.5, ISO 250, 1/640 sec, 50mm. I picked the pic for composition and character.

Paul adds, about the shooting setup: “Canon 60D: Rokinion 8mm Fisheye f3.5; Canon 430ex II Flash; Yongnuo YN 568ex Flash; Yongnuo 622c Triggers (three of those). Editing / RAW process: Adobe Lightroom 5.7; DXO Optics Pro 10. Strobist / flash info: Canon 430ex II Flash set on the right of me, the skater pointed 45 degrees toward the skaters position; Yongnuo YN 568ex Flash set to left on a tripod pointing slightly upwards, this was positioned to capture the skater mid air”.

The self-dscribed “colorist, photographer, editor, and motion graphic designer” is from High Wycombe, United Kingdom, but lives in Portsmouth. He joined Flickr in January 2010. You can also find him on Tumblr, Twitter, and Vimeo.
