    Some new ones

    This place is pretty dead these days, miss when this board used to be popping. Here's a couple new ones that recently came out as part of an interview for King Skate Mag. First one is smith grind, second is back lip.

    Some new ones

    This spot is one of the busier walkways in Toronto, right by the CN tower, so it's impossible to control that. I thought it was kinda cool though how the second pedestrian timed out to be blocked by the skater. I always like when little things like that happen that would be impossible to stage. I only shot one frame of this cause he landed the first one he locked. Thanks dude, I think I may have used a rim light for this but can't fully remember.

    curb cut to motorbike

    My eye goes straight to that shield on the front of the bike, and the curb cut isn’t that obvious. Maybe could have been better to shoot from a lower angle on the other side of the bike.

    This spot is pretty blown out now, nevertheless it was my first time skating in Montreal and I like the heelflip. Critiques please.

    bs air

    Did you should any from inside the bowl? Seems like that might work better for a BS air.

    First one for sure.

    Thanks guys. I went tight because I wanted as narrow depth of field as possible to make him stand out from the background.

    Fakie flip

    My only problem with this is the timing is too early.

    b/s tail by the river

    Good style on the skaters part in this one. I think the image could be improved by turning the flash power way down, and leaving the shutter open longer. I'd like to see stronger ambient light mixed in.
  12. Anyone try these before? I'm thinking of getting one for my Canon 8-15mm lens, wondering if it's worth it to go for the pro version, or just get two of the basic versions and treat them as semi disposable.

    I think you did alright with what you are working with, but this seems very boring to me. The spot is not that interesting and the skater is so small in the frame. Not really feeling the ass shot either, would be better if he was reg. Maybe a fisheye would have been a better option from the top of the stairs, but then you wouldn't see the drop on the other side. Or even fisheye from the bottom of the stairs, but again it would be another ass shot.

    Back Smith

    This is one of the first photos I ever shot that I was really stoked on. Wish the spot was still there, only went once and then it was removed a couple months later. I have been told it's too tilted. Opinions?

    What the hell have you been up to?

    I don't think too many people will remember me since I didn't join sp until near the end, but I was lurking around for a good amount of time before that. I have been pretty diligent shooting as much as I can during the break. I got a few things published in Canadian mags and started a zine. Had a baby girl in September so my free time has been drastically reduced. Still manage to go skate about once a week and I shoot photos whenever I can. SP was always an amazing resource so hyped it's back!

    Welcome Back Everybody.

    How did you break your camera in half?

    5050 and Backside Nosegrind

    Not sure I follow. Are you saying it's showing too much of the stairs? There is a wall from a long wheel chair ramp right behind me so that prevented me from taking the long lens angle I would have wanted.

    Crook, Kickflip, Lip

    I think you nailed it on all three. For the 15 maybe there is some other fresh vantage point you could get through a window or something. Other then that fisheye would be my next bet.

    Couple kickflips from summer

    First one is sick. I wish he wasn't wearing a black sweater, really blends in to the background. The second one seems like it might have been better to take a bunch of steps back and use a long lens of there was room. Also the way he is catching it seems not the most photogenic. Might have been worthwhile to get him to do it again till it looks proper. Timing slightly earlier on the second kickflip could have also maybe helped, I don't care for photos when the kickflip is over rotated at the point of catch.

    Compton Rails

    I think a more effective angle would have been shooting vertical from bottom of the rail on the ramp side. Seems like you could have gotten low and framed him in the sky while showing the stairs and run up. Either that or go horizontal from a similar angle to the second photo but maybe more up the ramp and put your camera on the ground pointing up. In any case I think the second angle shows the trick better, I don't like blunts from the opposite side.

    Sw blunt and sw heel

    This is the only skate photo I have really shot with it, haven't tried with flashes yet. The shutter has a noticeably slower delay on the shutter than my 5D so I find that a bit awkward to get used to. I'm gonna play around with it this coming year hopefully once winter is done.

    Sw blunt and sw heel

    Hyped to see the site back up! Here is a couple from the break. I don't normally shoot tricks with it but first one is with my Fuji X100S Justin Fabus - Switch Blunt. Brandon Del Bianco - Switch Heel
