Tips on How to Take Snowboard Photos – Video

Here’s a quick video shot with my helmet mounted GoPro showing how I set up and took this photograph:

My tips would be:

– shoot into the sun if you want your snowboarder and snow to have a glow or a silhouette (use filters and an external flash to reduce sun glare and light up the foreground if need be)

– be clear with your subject exactly where you want them to be going and when you want them to go

– your camera settings depend on the conditions but try and use a fast shutter speed and low ISO to have a sharp image

– shoot in RAW rather than JPEG (RAW keeps all the original data captured on the camera’s sensor whereas JPEG compresses the image and loses detail)
