    Well if its film the only way to control iso is by changing the film

    These are pretty good for a first timer. You definetly have an eye for framing shots and using good foreground and background. Hope to see more shots from a fellow skate photog!

    Changing that is letting the camera know what film its using so when on auto modes it can set the settings correctly.

    Try to get closer, the last one would have been super cool if you got up super low to that thing i dont know what its called ha and upload your pictures bigger so we can see what they are doing lol.

    yeah good for a beginner...work on composition...try and find interesting angles (nice birds eye..but not great for skating cause you can see the trick as well)

    also, someone said above on the last one you could have got really low and close up to the median divider thingy and it wouldve been a really cool shoot...

    also what is the smallest number aperature on your lens (eg. 5.6, 2.8 etc) cause you could experiment with wide aperatures (small numbers)

    and do you have continous shooting/auto advance? or do you have to manually advance the film...cause if its auto, you can take multiple shots during one trick and string them together to make a really cool photo

    here is a great guide with some very good tips on photographing skateboarding

    Looks good, I'd like to see them a little closer though.
