Involve the Athlete
“i encouraged Tadej to show Peter some of his favourite images as the shoot progressed,” says Samo. “Keeping the athlete involved is a great way to boost their confidence and keep the morale high, even in difficult conditions. Share your shots, and keep reassuring them to pep them up.”
When you communicate with your subjects (athletes or otherwise) they might be able to point out things that you were unaware of. Here, Peter let Tadej know which shooting angles worked well for him, and which captured the sport most faithfully.
