Chris Benny Amazing Work Still Requires Photoshop.

Here is a message directly from Chris about the shoot and to view the actual magazine cover with this image. If you like what you see then leave a comment below.

Chris Writes:
I was given the task to shoot this shot for the cover of Australasian Dirt Bike Magazine.

As the sun began to go down, we set up 3 580ex’s and a single AlienBee 800.

2 580′s to cameras right, a single 580 to the left and the Alienbee as a backlight.

We set the back of the berm on fire and got shooting.
As we were shooting for a cover it was tricky. Composition wise, it goes against every rule, but the client wanted the rider up close, with enough room for copy top and bottom.

There was a little work done in post as you can see in the video. I brought the riders leg to the forward position for a more aggressive look, cleaned up the background and added some more fire. It was also requested by the client for warm saturated dirt.

Shot details:
Canon 1Ds III
1/250th @ f/9.0 – ISO100
