My friends are really good skiers, way better than me. So when they are building huge BC kickers I am happy to take photos instead of killing myself trying to do tricks I don’t know how to do.
This photo is from one of this winter’s BC kicker sessions. I did not bring my camera because I was skiing on this day and not taking photos. But the Red Bull Illume mobile category popped into my head, so I went over to the kicker to take some shots.
I tried the burst function on my phone, which was surprisingly fast. Way faster than my Canon 5D Mark II, but really hard to use. The auto-focus missed all the time, and the camera did not work properly because of the low temperature.
Anyway, some of the photos turned out pretty good, including this one. I tried to get as low as possible, to get some nice, untracked snow in the foreground. I edited it to black and white in Photoshop Express, and was pretty happy with the result.
