I think it's a really great idea.. and with the results you see in the capture it would be really cool to do it again with some specific goals.. you did the shoot for him... now go back and do the shoot for yourself..

Butt shot... not a big fan, although still pretty cool

I wouldn't say anything set me off – these are simply words on a screen. I understand it's not like shooting a model – I've been skating for 12 years and have been shooting skate photography for 7 of them and if we're going to use "publish cred" as a way of comparing eachother, I've been published in Thrasher numerous times back in my 1D and fisheye days. I think you read into my comments as negative, which they aren't at all, just a form of "constructive criticism" like you asked for when posting the photo. I'm blunt, yes, but I don't see the point in saying "cool photo, but…", and making excuses for a less-than-stellar photo by saying "I couldn't have… [Blah blah]" is a little lame – it's your job as the photographer to make the shot as awesome as you can. Is this as awesome as possible? No. If you think that's bad, you should've been on SkatePerception a few years ago – yikes. EIther way, think about how much better this shot would've been if you could see the dude's face, the way his knees and feet are interacting with the position of the board; all of this essentially giving an identity to the subject… and then maybe come back to this and shoot a frontside/backside flip. Also, frame him in the sky! You got so close!

I can get behind most of what you are saying.

I will say though, that I'm not using "publish cred" to compare myself to anyone. I have no need to get into a pissing match with you or anyone else. The point was I like the shot myself, and someone else liked the shot enough to publish it - that's 100 times the gratification I needed. More to the point, it was more than just me who though the shot was interesting; more or less in response to you implying that this is flat out, not an interesting picture, which is very objective. Like shooting ducks, or cat, or dogs...for some, not for others. Maybe I like butts? Kidding, of course. Again, I generally shoot for my own enjoyment and this was no different. Robby had an idea, and we went and played around; I do realize it could have been planned better, for sure. But if I capture something I think is either bit interesting, I'll share it.

It's all for fun. That is the point of it, for me.

I appreciate your criticisms. Blunt yes, I can appreciate that too. Just be careful you don't fringe to much on being abrasive...that kind of take the fun out of it.

Thanks again for the second post.

I really like 1 and 3. But I would like them better if he was using roller blades. Maybe work on that next time? ;)

I actually like it a lot the way it is, the boarder is on his way but not the only focus, #1 is my favorite. #3 I'd take the hikers out. Pretty well done IMO


40D, 5D3, a bunch of lenses and other things :cool:

I am no skater and don't know anything about skating. BUT, I really like the first shot! I think it's a cool and interesting shot. The first time I looked at the photo, skater not being fronted didn't really draw my attention. Instead the whole picture just worked for me. Perhaps you did a great job on utilizing the entire scenery? ;) BTW, congrats on getting published.

A few from a a couple of skate shoots a while back.

7D

just a question which mode you use with your 430 EX II to take this photo (to combine long exposure with action) ?
