NPhoto - - Mountain Biking Masterclass -

Con­di­tions were not ideal on the day, but Seb proved to me that with a bit of pa­tience and prepa­ra­tion for ev­ery se­quence, con­di­tions can be over­come and even used to your ad­van­tage. Us­ing ‘Man­ual’ all day felt strange at first but it all made sense in the end. Off-cam­era flash was also new to me and I was pleased with the ef­fect, and I was im­pressed with some of the ul­tra-wide Tok­ina I bor­rowed from N-Photo for this shot. I have had my D5100 for about 18 months but I feel as though I gave it a proper work­out, and I can­not wait to get out in bet­ter weather and put into prac­tice all I learnt on the day. It was good to work with two true pros. Seb is a per­fec­tion­ist when it comes to pre­par­ing a shot, I would say his tech­nique is 90 per cent prepa­ra­tion and com­po­si­tion, 10 per cent snap­ping. Chris Smith is such a skilled rider who never once moaned at my mul­ti­ple failed at­tempts to get the right shot!
