Our Ap­pren­tice says…

For this shot, Gary taught me the im­por­tance of back-but­ton fo­cus­ing us­ing the AE/AF but­ton on the rear of my D750 [see page 66 for more on this]. This meant I could use my thumb to con­tin­u­ously fo­cus as I tracked my sub­ject through the viewfinder, and then fire off a burst of shots at the peak of the ac­tion. This shot works be­cause the rider has sig­nif­i­cant air and a slight turn. A more in­ter­est­ing sky would’ve im­proved this, but short of do­ing a rain dance we couldn’t in­flu­ence the weather!
