In summer 2013, I teamed up with Red Bull and trial-biker Petr Kraus to produce a new innovative project for the Red Bull Media House new standard in photography. This commissioned image was based on my Becoming an Athlete series, and the challenge was to capture Kraus evolving from layman, in street clothes, to an athlete at the top of his game in one beautiful image.

I worked with a combination of continuous light and strobe light to create that cool trail effect. Everything was shot in camera in one single photo each time, and the final art came together in post-production to recreate the sequence of the movement.

Here is a behind-the-scenes video of me and Petr capturing the right shot at dusk on a Frankfurt rooftop this past summer.

Video by Red Bull.
Special thanks to Red Bull and Broncolor.

Sunny 16 rule:
An approximately correct exposure will be obtained on a sunny day by using an aperture of f/16 and the shutter speed closest to the reciprocal of the ISO speed of the film; for example, using ISO 200 film, an aperture of f/16 and a shutter speed of 1/200 second.
