Let me start by saying the weather during the photo shoot was far worse than I initially expected. I was very concerned about the quality of the light one could get under such a conditions. However, once again Elincrhom Ranger with Quadra RX saved the day. Most of the photographs were taken with one Quadra RX positioned 5-6m from the subject with the light compensation equal to +f6.0 (full power).
Irrespective of the ambient light quality, it was not raining! Hence, one could safely set up the light system outside. Now few words about the general aesthetics of the climbing projects for the contestants during BBX12. The organizers did very nice job, and prepared a great variety of outdoor bouldering problems, usually 3-5 meters high (10-16 ft.)! Most of them were overhanging with some extra features.

I did have the pleasure to photograph during the last year event, the BBX11. It was really fun! People were motivated, music nice, and the bouldering problems really cool! You can see some of the photographs taken during the last BBX in my bouldering portfolio. Moreover, just to give you a flavor of fun and variety of bouldering problems I attached few photos from BBX11 below!
See you at BBX12!
