the dan milner photography blog: tales of an adventuring photo chimp

P.O.M Sept ’10

Photo of the month:

Shooting for bike clothing company Royal Racing recently, our first stop was the newly built north shore in Les Houches, a stones throw from my house. The boss wanted misty and moody, the riders dry and fast. The boss won in the end, with valley cloud hanging in the woods after a downpour, adding atmosphere but making the north shore wood a real challenge. Riders Tibor Simai and Fraser McNeil were happy enough lapping the trail, but I wanted more than the ‘same old’ and grabbed a tilt-shift lens for the shoot; glass thats usually reserved for architectural photography. Canon EOS 1Dmk3, Canon TSE 24mm

Pondering of the month: I have tennis elbow and I haven’t picked up a tennis racket for atleast 25 years.

On the shelves around about now: MBUK Sept 6 pages of Orgasmatron trail building story, WMB 8 pages of battling snow flurries in Fort William shooting a bike test & 5 pages romping Santa Cruz singletrack with Giro, Bike mag (USA) cover shot and 12 page UK feature.
