These are some of the images. Many more to order for proofs. Can cover any event, under any conditions. Can shoot LIVE Digital for internet uploading every hour on field or FTP. Archives are +40 Mb. Print-outs up to (48 inches x any lenght) on photgraphic paper. Display images vary in quality due to JEPG compression.
Extreme sports photography is beeing on call 7x 24, while the event lasts. Split second decisions have to be made on the run. No more photographic technicalities to fool around... the finger fireing has to be precise, dead on! Know your equipment, exposure laws and style blind folded. In sports photography we are talking not an assignment but something natural to your existance... experiece and moods gained thru time and practice. Sometimes golf country clubs... others swamps or freezing tundras, snow and sand storms... all of these shapes up an extreme sports photographer character.
These expertise comes in handy when the editor has all the material requested, not haveing to go over tons of useless film or archives.
Even though "digital" gives us a LIVE proof of our work, there are no second chances to dig either. Sports is a one time shot. While its easier to streach out the EVs on dig, it causes white noise. Dig cameras have problems balanceing out whites and I am still hooked on Velvia (+40 mb). When the conditions permit it and we are not talking a humid, corrosive cave expedition documental... I go dig. Always thinking a Portra profile when shooting "JPEG" and Chrome when shooting "Raw".
Edge technology is out there... master analog and THEN swith over!
However, I seriously doubt fine photography can ever be replaced by digital.
