Photos of the week
Ben Pelosse of the Journal de Montreal snapped this well-timed image of Canadian divers Jennifer Abel (front) and Emilie Heymans bringing home gold medals on the 3m platform at the 2012 Tin Bo Travel Coupe Canada Cup on May 6, in Montreal. One of the most difficult aspects about photographing diving is trying to find a clean background to give a better feeling of your subjects flying through the air. He used a long telephoto lens to isolate the two divers which helped give focus at the peak moment when Abel and Heymans sprung off the platform. The photo was taken using a Nikon D3S ISO 3200 1/1000 f4 with a 200-400 mm lens at 400 mm.
