""This is at the world swimming and diving championships in 2003, and it's shot at 1/15th of a second--a very slow shutter speed. The technique is called panning. You follow the diver from the top of the board and as he comes down, you pan with him, trying to keep his body in focus. Obviously divers move very quickly and there's a lot of jerky movement, and that's why his legs have kind of disappeared. At this shutter speed you throw 99 percent of the images away, so I was happy to wind up with this shot."

Shot with a Canon EOS-1D, EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM"

That lens wasn't released then and another shot he says he took 5 years ago was ashot with the 1D Mk.II. Not released yet.

Great shots, but the journalism is a bit weak.


people will always try to stop you doing the right thing if it is unconventional
Full frame and some primes.

The Iranian one shot in 1998 also claims it was shot with a 50mm f/1.2L

some very nice photos, interesting to note that some of the photos didn't have a straight horizon

He's on SI.com and I'm not. He must be doing something right.

Yep :)

It is sad that SI's inability to get their facts right distracts from the photo essay :( I would have thought that they could have done a little better?
