NS Photo Contest, Week 17
READ EVERYTHING PLEASE
Congrats to the Top 5 that we had with the Photojournalism topic. I loved everything I read, it was all so good.
And congrats to the winner, powderbro
, with his writing & photo:
How can you live knowing that the best downhill trail within 30 miles is highly illegal and highly patrolled? You can't. You can try, you can ride other trails, but you can't restrain the urge- you've heard stories of how legendary the only trail in town you've never ridden is. You've scoped it out- you know where it is, you know where it goes, and you know where it ends- on a university campus. And you know that the police drive past the trail's runout regularly, and even if you dodge them, it'll be tough explaining a V10 mysteriously appearing on campus.
So you go at night.
As a result of winning, he got to choose this week’s topic, which is:
Pay very careful attention to how the light falls upon your subject, and control your light. Make it bend over for you and do what you want it to do. You can do this with speedlights, big lights, flashlights, car lights, cigarette lights, northern lights, sunlight... the list goes on. Just make sure its exactly perfect, as per your artistic vision.
