Photo of the Day | Sam Ward

We go back to a artistic shot for todays photo of the day. Sam Ward from Kayak the Nile is racing in the giant slalom event at the 2014 Whitewater Grand Prix in Quebec.

This shot was captured again with a remote camera on a tripod. It also involved a lot of luck and several racers to nail the shot. But that is the beauty of shooting events with a remote camera. I concentrated on the safe shots with my handheld camera while I let my remote camera create art. This way I don’t have to stress about missing a big moment because I was trying to do something artsy. I used Pocket Wizard Plus III‘s to trigger my camera.

To get my shutter speed down to 1/10 of a second I used a neutral density filter. A must of any outdoor photographer in my opinion. It allows of an extended range for creative shots.
