Lee Morris and I decided it would be fun to feature a professional snowboard photographer on the front page of fstoppers. So we packed up all the cameras and headed out to Frisco, Colorado to see what our friend Dave Lehl could do to shed light on the amazing world of snowboard photography. I had no idea what we were about to get ourselves into when Dave told us he was shooting some professional snowboarders in the back country of Vail Pass and we should tag along to document it all. If you’ve ever found yourself wondering what goes on during a snowboard photoshoot or just enjoy the sport, check out our profile video on Dave Lehl and be prepared to be amazed!

This video is hardly new (appeared back in 2008), but could be helpful for those of you who haven’t seen it yet. In it, photographer Joe McNally teaches how you can use your body to stabilize the camera, gaining a stop or two of light. McNally says his technique is mostly useful for left-eyed shooters, but you can adapt many of the things taught regardless of which eye you use.
