With the coronavirus pandemic severely shutting down international athletic competitions for months, Swedish photographer Joel Marklund was pleased to get back to sports again. In July he was back photographing rock climbing, athletics and football. He brought the latest professional Nikon D series model and took advantage of the superb AF system to chase for the perfect moment, paired with ultra-fast Wise CFexpress cards. Joel recalled one of the football matches during the shutdown, he faced not only challenging weather conditions, but also finding a creative camera angles for his shot.
Life is full of unrepeatable moments, says wildlife photographer Thorsten Milse. You know if your camera is water-resistant. And if it’s not, you can just use a protective jacket. You’re then ready to travel, prepared for the shoot. But the reliability of your recording media is no less important than your camera (it’s actually more vital, as a camera can be replaced; your files can’t.)
