    This was my first time shooting Emma riding and it was super overcast which made everything just seem dull, but I did my best. I was hoping I could catch her jumping Nike, but I had to run to a meeting before she started:grumpy:

    Tell me what ya think.

    All shot in Av at f/2.8. Shutter speed for the first was 1/320 and the last was at 1/400.
    ISO 1600.

    I feel like I should have been shooting with a slightly smaller aperture, but the conditions wouldn't really allow for much leeway. ISO 2000 I thought would be a little bit too noisy.

    Any tips for composition and good angles for next time?

    Edit: Sorry, I guess I should post more of her actually riding :blushing:

    I think there's a little too much contrast here. As for composition, I like #2 and #4. The first has a very busy background that's a bit distracting. #3 might be cropped a little too close.

    Keep at it!
