A few months ago I was walking to my studio and came across these two guys freerunning. Most people were like, WTF is wrong with these guys and why are they doing somersaults in the bushes. I’ve always been both fascinated and deeply impressed by the agility and athleticism, so I stopped them and asked if they’d like to shoot sometime.
On Tuesday I met with Nolly (the guy upside down in most of the photos) to take some photos around town. He thinks nothing of just doing a backflip in the middle of the road or jumping off the side of a building… pretty excellent subject!
Some technical details:
Camera: Nikon D850
Lenses: Nikkor Af-S 14-24mm (main) and Nikkor 24-70mm
Bag: Genesis Gear Ursu (L) - holds camera body, 2 lenses and 15’ MacBook Pro
Settings: Needing to shoot fast I put the ISO to 400 - Aperture F2.8-F5.6 - Shutter speed between 1/1250 and 1/5000 using AF-C
Here’s a slideshow of some of the pics. Massive thanks to Nolly for jumping around in front of the camera.
