Skateboard Dude

The harsh sunlight and his dark clothing contributed to my decision to make a silhouette out of this shot. It was a shoot from the hip grab shot. The shutter clicked at exactly the right time. For this kind of shooting I just set the camera to program and the ASA to 1600 and let the software do its magic.

Skateboard Guy Practicing

It never ceases to amaze me why these guys don’t break every bone in their body. This dude was showing off in front of the library steps. The trick he was practicing involved some sort of mid-air twisting of his board ending with him landing on it going backwards. He wasn’t having much success but at least he hadn’t broken anything by the time I left.
