An inside look at what goes into getting the shot
About the shot:
When the sun is out in full force in the forest, there’s harsh shadows and hotspots everwhere… except if you shoot straight into the sun. I squeezed myself under the gap in the jump, and tried to frame Bryn within the tree tops. The fisheye lens tends to curve the corners and I used this effect to enhance the framing on Bryn even more.
Mid-day sunshine in the trees.
