Sportbike freestyle stunt riding is not common in Croatia, there’s only couple of guys doing it and Hrvoje Kostelac is one of them.


I had an opportunity to take couple of photos of Hrvoje doing some mad stunts on his freestyle sport bike. Hrvoje was born on the bike and he’s one of those guys who makes his riding look so darn easy.  Don’t try this at home, kids.. and enjoy the pics! 😉 And while you’re at it, support the guy, like his page and drop a comment on his Facebook page!

Let’s get down to the lighting. Setup was pretty simple, two speedlites on opposite sides, shot through umbrellas and third flash was gelled blue and shot onto the wall in the background. All three flashes were set at 1/4 power to freeze the motion, therefore the ISO had to be bumped up to 200.  As usual, all the technical info is in the section below, as well as the bonus pic! Check it out!


Camera and light settings:

  • Canon 600D @ 1/200 ISO 200
  • Canon EF-S 10-18mm f4.5-5.6 @ 10mm f4.5
  • Three Yongnuo YN-560III Speedlites (details in the BTS pic below)
  • Triggered by Yongnuo YN560-TX manual flash controller


And here is one more pic of stoppie he did!
