The defining contrast between movement and something seemingly stationary was perfectly captured. Great work.

really great photos with amazing moments too

Behind The Lens

Location
This was shot in Jordan, wadi rum desert to be exact.
Time
This was shoot around 7pm, we were shooting the whole day because the scenery was sooooo good! We should finish the shoot around 5pm and then head back to the city because we had flight really early in the morning but we could not stop shooting and thats why we came to the city at 12pm and my flight was at 8am the next day... and i woke up at 8am when the plane was departure. So i missed my flight and had to find another flight back home and that was another mission too.
Lighting
Just sun from the back creating this wide lens silhouette that i want it.
Equipment
This was shot on canon 5d mk 3 and sigma 24mm 1.8 art lens. i cary just this and 70-200 f2.8 on my trips because our trips are always fast and long so i try to travel light as possible, although i ain't because when you are athlete photographer you are also his assistant and everything else so the athletes can fell stress free and do what they can do best so i usually bring their stuff too.
Inspiration
Treasure hunt Jordan’s ethereal beauty and its famous hospitality have long attracted film makers. Recently the desert sands of Wadi Rum hosted Ridley Scott and his team. During the shooting of ´The Martian´ Matt Damon experienced how it feels to be the only person on the planet. Rok stepped into the Martian’s boots and explored the wadi with his DUKE, making his final pit stop in Petra where the spirits of Nabateans and Indiana Jones live on.
Editing
I did, but not that much. Nothing special, just color, couple of brushes and high pass filters and some small clone stamping procedures.
In my camera bag
Burton bag, canon 5 dmk3 (mk2 for the backup when needed), canon 70-200mm f2.8L, sigma 50mm 1.8art, sigma 24mm f1.8 art, canon 100mm f2.8L macro, couple of GoPros, old canon speed lights when needed, trigers and small stuff like batteries, cards, pain killers, wipes, fresh socks and a passport...
Feedback
Go places, tilt your head, close your eyes, breathe for a bit and go with the flow. There is no tutorial for this. Just do what you feel like doing it.
