On January 30th, as part of Winterfest Weekend, Mad River Mountain will be hosting a Big Air Event in the Capital Park at 6:00PM. Skiers and Riders alike will show off their talent to send themselves hurtling through the air in an effort to win the first place prize! Ryan Andreas Photography will be there covering the event from start to finish.
We will be focusing on the BIG AIR competition, utilizing three camera, three strobes, and two shooters. We’ve been planning this shoot for a week, tossing ideas around on how to make this shoot better than the last. Our biggest question, will the strobes work more than once. It is going to be cold, very cold, 15 degree cold. We are asking a lot of gear to work in weather that we are not sure we want to be in. But, we want the shot, and we’ll do anything to get it.
Here is what we are planning: Ryan will be shooting a D3, Greg will be shooting a D300, and we will have a D200 setup as a remote camera. We will be sharing 3 strobes, one placed on the right of the jump, one placed on the left of the jump, and one placed with the D200. Using Pocket Wizards, we will be able to control a strobe and/or the remote camera.
