Hanging and Skateboarding at Tobey Skatepark.

March 22, 2015  •  1 Comment

I found out something yesterday. I do a lot of sports photography, but when it comes to skateboarding I was shock how challenge it was to get the right shots. It took a few until I picked up the pace and from there the creative juice took over.

These kids hanging at Tobey Skate Park in Memphis sure love the rush. I used the Nikon D700 with a 70-200 ED 2.8, and a D300 with a Yongnuo YN 560 II to help me fill in the shadows. 

I first started in Manual mode, and then quickly realize that I was just too slow for this.

I switched to aperture priority, and played with the ISO. It was a nice overcast day in Memphis, so using the flash also helped especially with the high sync shots.

It tough on a sunny day, the wave reflects everything.
Also the sun creates a strange pattern of shadows due to the shapes of the bowls...
