Skateboading at night

zitro_joeOctober 8, 2007

We had family over this weekend and my nephew, Chris, has recently taken up skateboarding. There is a small skate park here is I took over there. Surprisingly at 8:30, everyone left.

It was interesting taking the picture. There were three different types of light sources, so the white balance was all over the place. It caused some interesting back lighting for the pictures. I played around with the double slow shutter option. I liked the results, Chris thought they were really neat. I like that it allowed for motion blur yet also captures a still photo as well.

Here is a link to the made form that night, or you can follow the link at the bottom of the page.

Wow, my grammar and spelling is everywhere, my apologies. Also, I was using the double flash, slow shutter. The camera uses a slow shutter speed and while the shutter is open the flash fires twice.

Great Pictures!!!! Wish I could get that close for my football pics.
You did a wonderful job with the video. Wish I was that talented.

Thanks you two! He very much enjoyed the pictures and video. I found myself on the ground, standing on rails and running along with Chris to get the shots I wanted.

I am probably going to blow one up to poster size for him.

The video thing gets easy after you have made a few.
