Park City Snow Board Grand Prix

Park City Mountain Resort Superpipe - US Snowboarding 2010 Snowboard Grand Prix

I got a rare chance a few weeks ago to shoot some snowboarding.  It was pretty sick to be at the Snowboard Grand Prix at Park City Mountain Resort since it was the last event for the US Snowboard Olympic team selection.  It was a really big deal, and it was really nuking all through the comp.  Now, although the heavy snowfall isn’t so good for the athletes, it’s something I’ve grown to love while shooting at night.  The heavy snowfall just adds so much to the shots, I just love it.  I went pretty basic on lighting at this event, as the hot lights they brought in for this event were actually pretty good.  Just had an Alien Bee 800 and Alien Bee 400 with me.  I got to leave the big Elinchrom Ranger at home for the contest, I was pretty pumped about not hauling the big daddy up for this one!  I was pretty amazed as to how well my D300 did during this event.  At a pipe event I usually bring two camera bodies up with me, one with a wide or short zoom and one with the 70-200 on it.  With the event hot lights I wasn’t sure if the D300 was going to do as well at the high ISO ranges of 1600-3200 that I was shooting at, but it did really well.  I knew my D3 was going to do great but how well the D300 did was a pretty nice surprise.

I haven’t blogged much lately, I’ve been trying to get after it so here’s a post with just some photos I liked from the event.  I hope you dig.

    Thanks, it was a fun contest to shoot. I usually hate shooting contests but with the snowfall at night it was awesome.

    Did you use the ABs on the high ISO shots? Low flashpower and high iso? Shooting at shutterspeed 250?

  7. 7 Erik Seo Posted March 30th, 2010 - 10:13 am

    Remy, I did use the AB’s on the high iso shots, it just depends on how I wanted to shoot it as far as shutter speed if I wasn’t syncing with my flashes though..

    My wife wondered if she should call the paramedics. Keystone
    stone, that is in any other case often known as coralina fossil stone,
    keystone or coralina, can be a higher-top quality content which can be
    extracted from limestone quarries throughout
    the Caribbean. If your bathroom design is built with an outside wall
    then chances are you have a small window and have natural light already.
