This is a study of the possibilities of shooting high performance kiteboarding with studio lights. I was lucky enough to work with some of the best kiteboarders in the world what allowed me to try all my ideas, including putting my flashes on pool floaties so I could place them where I needed on a lagoon and basically turn that lagoon in an outdoor studio. On this particular sessions we are able to get the full moon as well.
Author: My interest in photography began during a time I was also really into mountain biking. So I was mainly shooting the landscape of the places I got to go on my bike. Since biking is a sport that teaches you the importance of waking up early, I’ve also learnt to appreciate the beauty of that early morning light.
Since I’ve always been into sports it was a natural step to start shooting my friends doing sports. I quickly noticed that shooting during “the golden hour” led to shots I liked more. But then I started shooting sports like skateboarding and it’s very hard to talk skateboarders into walking up at 5am to get that good light. That was when I started studying artificial light.
Nowadays I travel with a pretty big amount of gear and place flashes where I probably shouldn’t be placing to get the shots you see here.
