Tadej’s com­ment

Photo Plus - - The Apprentice -

In the mid­dle of the rapids, it is very im­por­tant for the ath­lete to keep con­cen­tra­tion and have an over­view of the course. The main goal was to cap­ture the rider when he was look­ing straight at the cam­era and with the arms and pad­dle fram­ing the head. As with most of the close shots, this one was made with the 500mm prime lens. It proved chal­leng­ing to get the com­po­si­tion right, but also re­ward­ing when I learned to an­tic­i­pate the move­ment of the rider. Over­all, it was a great ex­pe­ri­ence, and I learned a lot about how to shoot with long lenses and how to com­mu­ni­cate with top ath­letes.
