Balázs PálfiCameraNikon D3Lens50.0mm f/1.8ISO400F-Stop16.0Shutter Speed1/1000About the shotAs an extreme sport photographer I usually shoot skateboarding, BMX, and car racing. I really wanted to make a series about the Red Bull Air Race too. I was therefore really glad that in 2015 the event was organized in Hungary. So I took my camera, and went to Budapest to take some photos.I decided to shoot a sequence which could show the rapid change of direction of the airplanes. I was curious also to see how an image could demonstrate height and speed. I was also interested in how wind and smoke would behave in a sequence photo. The whole shoot was a great experience for me.I took this photo with a Nikon D3 camera with a fixed 50 mm/ f.1.8 lens. I used f.11 F-stop to reach the right focal depth and a shutter speed of 1/1000 to freeze the motion.BiographyMy name is Balázs Pálfi. I’m a 27-year-old photographer from Hungary. I bought my first camera in 2004, when I was 16-years-old. When I finished high school I knew that I wanted to be a photographer. As I didn’t have the chance to study photography at university, I had to practice and acquire knowledge on my own. After a lot of work and time spent practicing, slowly I got my first contracts. Now I work as a freelance photographer for online and print magazines. Mainly I take photos of athletes, shoot portraits and classical documentary photos. As I’ve skateboarded since the age of nine, my main interest is focused on extreme sports. That’s why I’d rather choose to photograph outdoor events and dynamic photo shoots.
