AFL Essendon v West Coast

In a must win game for both teams the skill level was poor to say the least, many turnovers, very few targets being hit and therefore from a photographic point of view not many highlights from the game. The first image of the Bombers walking up the players race for the pre-match warm up was shot on the Canon 1Dx using the off camera remote ST-E3_RT and three Canon 600EX-RT speed lights , one positioned head on to light the players, one from slightly behind camera left to give a little rim light and the third from behind directed at the wording on the banner to make it "jump" in the picture. All three flashes were at manual power settings. Working at the match for AAP, all images can be seen at http://one.aap.com.au
