Backyard Method

I took this picture at my buddy Crae Wilke\’s house. He and his brother built a pretty elaborate backyard mini park this year and invited a bunch of local riders over to session it a few nights before Christmas. The rider here is Scott McCune, who is also the park manager at our local hill (Nordic Mountain, Mt. Morris WI). By the end of the night I had a big stack of similar images to choose from, but I liked the shot of this method the best out of the bunch. Nikon D300, Nikon 50mm 1.8, ISO 200, f/3.2, 1/60 to bring in the Christmas lights. SB-800 camera right, 1/8 power, in front of the rider. SB-28 camera left, 1/4 power, behind the rider.
