Last year I was invited to take pictures at the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series in La Rochelle, France. We had two days of pre-shoot and as usual I wanted to use the time of the pre-shoot to do something creative.
I tried all kinds of different angles and perspectives and also at some point started playing around with my mobile. I really liked the reflection on the black screen and the super blurry environment around, as I had to to pull focus on the distant action.
I took several different angles with it but liked the clean centred, composed version most as it appears very clean and simple. The black and white conversion adds to the image as it narrows the appearance down to contrast and lines and that helps focus on the action more easily. And that’s what it was supposed to be after all - an action shot.
