The Thing That Makes A Great Cy­cling Pic

Bicycling (South Africa) - - INSIDE! -

WOW Rides pho­tog­ra­pher Des­mond Louw, on the art of cap­tur­ing a per­fect cy­cling mo­ment.

I could write a whole book about tak­ing a good cy­cling shot; but at the end of the day, it’s all about the emo­tion the pic­ture stirs when you look at it. The most im­por­tant thing about any pic­ture is the story it tells. Who you were with, where it was taken, what you were do­ing: these are all the things that bring back mem­o­ries, turn­ing it from a still into a mov­ing pic­ture. The one I chose here is of my friend Nils Hansen, rid­ing up to the Block­house on Ta­ble Moun­tain. It’s a ride I re­mem­ber well, and one we both en­joyed very much on the day.
