What are some common mistakes people make when shooting mountain biking photos?
Biking can look very stagnant, so it's important to make sure your photo has an element of action. Concentrate on dynamic parts, like cornering, out-of-the-saddle pedaling, or a cool jump. If you don't have a good movement, then try to frame the rider with dramatic environmental elements. Sometimes making the rider small helps emphasize the scale of their surroundings. Obviously, it helps to have a beautiful location mixed with gorgeous light, so scouting is key.
