Ok, so please excuse the stupid title of this article. I literally couldn’t think of a suitable name and “Aerial photographs of BMX riders” wasn’t the catchiest of headlines. But yes, this FRIDAY RANDOMS features a few shots taken from a different perspective, mainly from above the rider. It’s these types of photos which tend to make me wonder what the photographer was thinking of at the time and what they may have had to do in order to achieve such a photo. (eg. scale buildings/trees and whatnot…) These pictures aren’t your ordinary run of the mill BMX photograph. Composition, lighting, timing and planning are key elements to any great sports photo and more goes into these than meets the eye.
