In November I got to test some new ATV's in the Moab desert. Unfortunately, I only got to ride/shoot for one day due to my teaching schedule, I could have spent a week there, it was one of the most insanely beautiful places I have ever been
This was also the first time I really had trouble with the limited dynamic range of digital capture. I tried some "psuedo" HDR but I couldn't get them to look right. The "recover" tool in Lightroom saved me. There are times (and photographs) when you shouldn't be using a digital camera to do a film cameras job. I wish I'd brought a Mamiya 7 along.
This is me. It doesn't look too bad until you realize that the "hill" behind me is actually the level ground. I'm basically driving straight up a wall, with all my cameras strapped to the front of the ATV. Give it a little too much gas and we are both flipping ass over teacup down a cliff. Having John Malley, one of the development riders from KTM, along for the ride, gave me the confidence to try things that would have been insane on my own.
