Illuminate: Cody Gessel at Evergreen, CO, USA


Photo and words: Long Nguyen

The inspiration of this idea came when my flashes were not strong enough. So I thought I would try and slow the shutter speed down and pray that my flashes would freeze the rider. This one took awhile to get, as I had to battle other photographer’s flashes since I had the shutter open for half a second.

Equipment: Canon 5D Mark II, 17-40 F4
