Elliot Stumpf, 360 Table
There’s something really liberating about shooting a photo without setting up flashes, tripods, and hours of planning. It’s nice to forget about fighting the dark, random shadows, and sun with artificial lighting. Just pick an angle and click away. Plus, the more you fight the lighting in a setting, the more artificial the shot can appear.
This shot was far from planned. Elliot and I were just riding his local park, getting in as many runs as possible before the light faded. I had seen him pull a few of these 360 tables earlier in the day, and remembered that I had left my spare camera in the car. I ran and grabbed it, and shot this quick photo just as the light was filtering through the trees. Elliot runs a pretty simple bike setup (no sprocket, chain, or brakes) just to switch things up, so I think the simple photo fits.
