Can you tell me about your project, Parkour Motion – how did you come up with the idea for the project and how long did you work on it?
I have been photographing Parkour for years now and am always thinking of new ways to shoot it. A few years ago, I shot a series of 3D images to convey the motion and movement of space, which can’t be translated as well through a 2D image. Parkour Motion is a continuation on that, and demonstrates the energy, power and determination of the athletes. This series was shot over two days in Manhattan.
What equipment did you use? Did you run into any difficulties at the shoot?
I shot the photos with a Canon 5D mark 2 and a Tamron 24-70mm lens. It was lit using a 580ex flash with an umbrella and a reflector for a bit of fill.
