Some photos just tend leap off the screen, elicit a special feeling, and they beg the question: How the heck did this come about? That is certainly true for Jeremy Allen’s shot of Max Frederiksson at Red Bull Joyride. Take a look at the shot and hear what Jeremy had to say.-ML
From behind the lens it looked just perfect. I saw the background coming to life – the vista glowing thoroughly through the forest fire smoke, really giving contrast to the whole photograph. The lined ridges in the back really made the athlete pop to draw focus on Fredriksson. The colours mainly came from the haze in the sky from nearby forest fires. Just after the sun had set past the mountains it created this beautiful glow that was too inviting for the eye to not capture through the lens.
