This single light brings out all the colors on the skiers that would ordinarily be quite drab with the flat, natural light. It also gives us a nice separation from the background.

We shot in the late afternoon with a low sun. The temperature was quite mild and this allowed the couple to be comfortable without heavy clothing. I had two assistants holding speedlites that were mounted on monopods. We were standing on a steep slope and with the monopods extended the lights could give some fill on the shadow side. We did two runs on the chairlift and got 6 shots on each pass. I used the 70-200 lens so I could zoom as the chairlift approached. This frame was shot at 148mm.
The overhead cable that supports the chair ran from the top of the frame to the heads of the couple. It was out of focus but still appeared to be a distraction so I removed it in post-production.
