Emi’s been putting in miles the past couple months on his Leader Mark 1 frame with rides from San Diego to LA and back, so when he got his new Ekoi kits in we headed out to do a couple shoots. It’s interesting shooting Emi since he’s always trying to sneak in as much riding in between posing shots. For the more foresty shots he rode up the mountain 6,000 feet up while we shot, with me simply driving ahead to setup lights while he caught up.
I tried out some new photoshop techniques on these pictures. The long hours being awake at night with a new born gives me time to stare at a computer and mess around with stuff I hadn’t tried before. This kind of processing obviously isn’t for every kind of subject matter, but for the “hero shot” look I’m really feeling it.
