Mountain Bike Stuntman, Jeff Lenosky

Last weekend I had a chance to work with Jeff Lenosky, an American world class professional Freeride and Trials Mountain Bicycle Rider.

Jeff Lenosky jumping his mountain bike over some brave little fans.

I connected with Jeff on Facebook, in hopes of catching up with him for his show here in Indianapolis at Bicycle Garage Indy, and making some great images of him doing his amazing stunts.  It was an absolute blast getting to know Jeff, and working with him.  I shot five of his six shows, and by the fifth one I was starting to dial it in, and get myself positioned in better and better spots to get some good shots.  I even wiggled my Jeep into a spot behind his stunt obstacles and trailers to get an elevated shooting perspective.  I wanted to be able to get Jeff some great photos that he can use with his sponsors (e.g., Giant Bicycles, Vittoria, and Ergon Bike).  All in all, it was a really good shoot.  Next time I want to focus a little more on some of his key sponsors and get some detail shots of their products.      

Flashback Cardinal Photo Composite

Almost two years ago it snowed--much like it did last night--and I set out to do a composite of all the cardinals that were flooding our back yard.  I set the camera out on a tripod to capture multiple images of the cardinals as the flew around, perched on the fence, and plucked seed from the bird feeder.  Then I layered all the images together, pulling out the cardinals from each image layer in order to build the final composite.  I wish it had been a sunnier day, but I really like the final image.
