The camera position was chosen carefully to capture maximum body angle at the gate and to get the camera as low as possible. The background has an obnoxious tower but if we had moved our position to the left we would have been uphill too much and the low angle would have been lost. The rest of the background is uncluttered, though, and nicely out of focus. Good action here as the skier has just made contact with the gate and snow is spraying from the skis.

Two factors about this camera position are notable. First, this head-on position lets us see the athlete's face and the extreme body angle. Second, I was positioned slightly below the flat spot where the gate is located. This allowed the camera to be almost level with the flat spot and below the athlete's head. Both of these factors contribute to a dramatic action shot.
