    hello!
    I just got a deal with a skateboardpark that includes me to get into thier park and shoot the skaters during februari. I see this as an awesome oppertunity to learn to shoot fastmoving targets.

    I was there yesterday but forgot my flash at home = stupid. Do you guys have and tips for future work?
    Is it best to "arrange" their tricks and so on?
    All tips would be helpful!

    Cheers
    Nyberg

    You have to keep a lookout for Good tricks you gotta know a bit about skateboarding;
    Grinds, Slides, Flips, etc.; Get Low And Get Dirty; also Fisheye is a must for this type of pics; I'll share some more in a few minutes!

    Update the quote takes less space! lol

    The Focus depends on the trick; is you stay static on someones 'try' on the same trick you should set to Manual; it quicker; but if you are randomly shooting Auto FTW!

    People will take you a little more seriously if you spell correctly and use proper syntax.
