Kristof Ramon, Sport Photographer that learned to use speelights with strobist.com: Shooting cycling races at 50 km/h ( 1 hour )

How can I capture a sport where my subjects often move at speeds over 50 km/h? How do I get sharp pictures? Where to focus? Where do I position myself to make an interesting composition? How do I light a situation like that; available light or flash? Can I use multiple flashes? In a race that can last for 5 hours; when to shoot? To travel heavy or light; what gear to drag along? Do I shoot wide or long lenses to get engaging pictures?…

All these questions need answers when you want to cover a cycling race, especially when your subjects aren’t your models but athletes completely concentrated on that race. Many of the tips and insights shared in this webinar aren’t just relevant to cycling photography, but sports photography in general.
