#1 - Your light stand is showing
#2 - Very nice, almost seems like it's just street lights producing the light for the image.
thank you, and i kindof like the light showing in number 1. with number 2 besides the sunset the only light was a flash to the right of the frame (i have one on the left but it didn't fire that time)
nice work !
Niceee I love it
First off let me say that im a skateboarding photographer and the trick is just as important as the lighting/ angle, so with number 1 taken early and the guy with the video camera is distracting, also the image is soft/oof. number 2 is ok, but is also soft/oof. your focus should be on the skater, not the corner of the bench.
these shots could be better.
lol @ bitteraspects. feeling bitter, are we?
#1: The environment competes with the subject too much and I don't like the composition very much.
#2: Perfection! Thank goodness his shirt's bright blue stands out and begs for my eyes attention against that amazing sky. Or else, I think the subject would have been lost.
1. the ultra-wide angle lens makes the skater look small and insignificant, which is the main problem with ultra-wide angle lenses. If you're going to use an U-W, it's going to have to be very close to the skater--so close that the camera/lens is in real danger.
2. the sky is beautiful, and the time of day is dramatic, but the positioning of the flash makes little sense to me; the flash coming from camera right illuminates the structure better than it illuminates him; light advances, dark recedes, ergo, this picture is more about that brick and steel planter ( what is it?) than the skateboarder.
I think the time of day you used was spot on. Keep workin with that too.
#1 is nice. The guy with the camera really adds to it.
