On location / Get on your bike!
1 Off to the side
A side-on view into the track will both keep yourself safe and capture the smoke that trails out behind the biker.
2 Holy smoke
Smoke grenades come in lots of colours, but we found midtone shades like orange and blue showed up best in the image.
3 Mountain biker
Tom, our mountain biker, was equipped with a sturdy helmet and is capable of quick downhill runs and flying over jumps.
4 Off-camera flash
A pair of Speedlights gave us the much-needed kick we needed to add punch to our shot with a blip of gritty lighting.
