EXPERT INSIGHT SPLIT-SECOND TIMING
You can’t use the motordrive when shooting jump sequences, as even if you have a 10 frameper-second burst mode you can’t guarantee getting the rider in the right spot.
You need to press the shutter button at the right moment, and if you mess up the rider has to go again. For the first run, Andy was too late, and for this second shot just a fraction too early.
The ideal position for this sort of jump shot is with the rider in the top-left hand corner of the frame, so that he and his Identiti Mogul bike are as big as possible in the composition.
