    My husband has been skating (aggressive) since he was about 10ish. It's a BIG part of his life and he wanted me to capture some pictures of him at the park one night (not really skating), but of him. So, here was my attempt.


    I do have tons of pictures of him and his friends skating...I will have to dig out the hundreds of photos I have and see which one's I can narrow it down to in order to post them. lol

    I've been thinking about getting into that also. I like #3 and #4. If you ever take more of him actually doing tricks and whatnot, I would love to see em. Take care.

    Oh, like I said...I have hundreds of him and his buddies skating in action. I just have to pick which one's I'd like to share...literally hundreds. We go every weekend to different skate parks (including when we are on vacation).:lmao:

    When you have a setup like #3 again, break the twig off to get it out of the way (IMO). I love that pose though...definitely my favorite...even if there are no sk8s! <EDIT> or does he have his skates on? they looked like shoes at first glance</EDIT>

    Please number your photos in the future. It makes it a lot easier to comment. But don't ask me how to do it, I have not the slightest idea :lol:

    Your photos are not perfect but I think they would make wonderful editorial type photos. Is that the right term? It gets harder to think straight everyday.

    Seriously, they are very nice.

    #2 could have been nicer by not cutting off his skate on the right.

    #3 The twigs are kind of annoying.

    #4 I would have reversed which skate the focus was on.


    My main problem is not your photos. It's your husband. He just looks too darn normal! :lmao: For a skater that is. Where are the tattoos and torn jeans and who knows what else? :lmao:

    Yea he had his skates on in that pic. There were just a bunch of leaves in the way he was standing on in the corner before he did a run. I know the the tree there was in the way...but I wasn't really paying attention at the time I was shooting. He didn't even know I had taken this picture. Then he started talking to me and seen me take another. I was trying to capture him being himself and normal and not in a "pose" position.

    When he's know's I'm about to take a picture...I get goofy pictures of him like this:

    [​IMG] :lol: He always strikes a "pose"...not the pose I'm looking for. :thumbup:

    #2 really pissed me off because I wanted BOTH skates in the picture. This little area that he was skating in...I was laying on the ground and backed up against a fence...I should have had him scoot back...but as I said in the above post...I was trying to do this without him "posing".

    #4...as fast as he goes by...I'm lucky to get any skate in the picture let alone try to focus on a certain skate. :lol: It's rough. I take about 200-300 pictures when the boys skate and process about 30 if that most times. But I'm still learning and hopefully improving.

    What kind of skater are you talking about? Aggressive or skate boarding? We only have 1 skater here that he hangs with that has tattoos. Torn jeans...yea ALWAYS...but these were actually a new pair of "work" pants :confused: that he wore straight to the skate park after work without changing. Needless to say...they are "skate" jeans from now on. :grumpy: Most times you'll catch him in the baggie pants like all the other guys...however, he just went and ordered online a bunch of straight leg tight (skateboarder type) jean pants...but they are stretch jeans...so I guess that makes it alright in the inline world. lol

    Trust me, I know what you mean. Before I got my slr, it was a simple shoot what you seen and everything you seen in the picture situated in the middle. After getting the slr and learning about the rule of thirds and seeing people shoot things like from the waist down, or just feet...it makes it more interesting. I get idea's from everywhere no matter what the subject is and apply to what ever picture I'm trying to take. Some things happen by mistake...and it ends up being a great picture. So it's always great to have an open mind..I've learn that myself since doing photography. :blushing:
