When shooting skiers and snowboarders in action:

• Set your shutter speed to at least 1/1000.

• Get as close to your subject as you can, safely. Try shooting from low angles to make jumps look more impressive.

• Use a flash. If your subject is close, it’ll help balance out the brightness of the snow and the sky.
