Shown here is Steve FIsher, the 2007 Men's Snowboard Superpipe gold medalist . Fisher, a member of the US Snowboarding Team also won the 2004 X Games gold medal in the superpipe competition.
My "Best of 2005" WWP entry also featured the X Games Superpipe Competition. (The snowboarder in that panorama, Shaun White, went on to become an Olympic gold medalist in 2006).
I learned a few things between 2005 and 2007. The most important thing was to shoot jpg instead of RAW for action shots. My Canon 20D can only hold 6 RAW files in the buffer vs 23 jpg files. I increased my shutter speed from 1/200 to 1/400 with the aperture at f4 (maximum for that lens) and the ISO 1600. I'd like more light but pictures at ISO 3200 were unusable. I also took more shots of the spectators, giving myself more overlap between the photos.
