Preparation

Keaton Spry preparing for his pommel horse routine at Dynamo Gymnastics in Hamble, a great club based just outside Southampton.  

This was part of a shoot that I did for the club for their junior gymnasts.  The boys and girls are so talented and confident, I was amazed at the routines the girls performed on the beam, and on edge incase they fell off, which they didn't! I was in awe of the boys on the rings, their strength has to be seen to be believed. 

From a photographic point of view the light is challenging to say the least.  I'm regularly shooting at ISO 8,000-10,000 to get reasonable shutter speeds.  For this shot i set up 3 flash heads to darken the background and isolate Keaton and the chalk cloud.
