ANDY DAY’S FIVE TOP TIPS FOR PARK­OUR PHO­TOG­RA­PHY

Digital Photograper - - Interview -

1 FRAME FOR DRAMA

Get low and shoot wide.

2 PUT THE SCENE FIRST

Com­pose ac­cord­ing to the ar­chi­tec­ture, not the ac­tion.

3 CRE­ATE CLAR­ITY

Look for frames within frames, and place the body against the sky or clean el­e­ments within the shot.

4 KNOW YOUR SUB­JECT

Learn park­our. If you know what ath­letes can do, you can find op­por­tu­ni­ties for pho­to­graphs more eas­ily, and when you’re ex­plor­ing with them, you’ll be speaking the same lan­guage.

5 WORK AS A TEAM

Work closely with the ath­letes. Of­ten they are pho­tog­ra­phers and film­mak­ers them­selves so they can give you some great feed­back and of­fer ideas of their own.
