Oscar Hubinette getting face shots in Engelberg, Switzerland. This is a classic powder shot. The real challenge was to capture the skier in the right position while, at the same time, filling up the whole frame. I felt I did that here. The Al Servo was priceless, without it and shooting with manual focus, it would have taken a long time producing a good result. This image also shows how important it is with colors. If I was going to reshoot the image, I would have told Oscar to wear a red helmet. The snow had been dumping for 24 hours, and the depth of the fallen snow was about 70 cm. This made working a bit harder. When putting down the backpack in the snow (even though I dug a hole), it always kept on sneaking into the backpack. It worked ok, but still annoying.
