only had one flash, would of liked a rim to light up the kicker and make it a bit more clear what's going on but fuck it. let me know how to improve.

thing is if you wanted to light this perfectly and light the kicker you'd need 3 flashes

have a rim behind the wall pointed at your skater out of picture, keep the one flash where it is, and then have a flash to your right somewhere illuminating the kicker.
rim light is used to pull your subject from the background and to also stop any blur., it makes that rim light and your subject shouldn't blend.

prime example of rim light used perfectly

one flash placed poorly, no rim, everything blends
