Great advice. I actually do not have any actual portraits, showing just the face (and a bit of shoulders maybe), I wish there was another race to try again!Shoot wide in landscape or tight in portrait.
Great advice too! The fence and the crowd would have made it difficult (it was an urban race, the snow had come with trucks from the mountain and they had built a ring in a downtown park in Milan), but I did not even try to lower the camera and I'm sure I could have gone that direction a little bit.Take note of the skiers facial positions, most of them are looking down and forward. The angle you shot from is a bit high, get down lower so you can really see those expressions better.
