Wow. What a change in pace. A few friends from school and I went to a track in highland and took some pictures for some BMX riders so that they can submit them to potential sponsors. We had a pretty complete setup: a generator to power two power supplies, which powered three flashes, these all triggered by a wireless transmitter on the camera called a Pocket Wizard. That enabled us to move anywhere on the track and not be held down by cables. A few of these jumps ended in teeth-clenching wipe-outs, but I guess that's not as much of a concern as is getting the picture of the good part of the jump. Sometimes I need to shoot something totally different to remind myself how much I truly love photography.
