Some photography I've done whilst longboarding with my friends (shall add to this topic);


Most of these shots I've used flash, it just looks more dynamic. Shutter speed is 200, ISO is 200 too - f/5.0








As you can see I've been trying to get the basics of panning.

Love the dynamism in the 4th picture, it really looks quite good. The second ones focus really pisses me off. Not that I dislike out of focus foregrounds, I just dislike it when half the photo is composed of it. The flash on 5 also annoys me, the lighting seems flat and harsh.

I, on the contrary, believe 2 and 3 are the worst of the lot. In fact, the only picture that comes close to not being bad is the fourth one.

I'm sure you had a lot of time on your hands, so coming up with something creative shouldn't have been too hard.



This isn't my picture; it's just one that I found is a good example.


First image: Motion blur, lens distortion on subject, subject cut off frame.

Second image: It's just plain boring. What are you trying to convey?

Third image: Again, simply boring. It's a wheel, big deal.

Fourth image: You were using a flash and yet managed to get the sky's highlights blown? You need to shoot RAW.

Fifth image: Apart from seeing the edges of the flash, it's shot at a horrible angle. Also the subject isn't doing anything "interesting".

I have to agree with Latios, I'm not a big fan of them save for maybe the fourth one. There's not a whole lot going on in any of them which is pretty important for these sort of action shots.


Also I'm a firm believer in no helmets for skateboarding/longboarding. >_> Hell if I ever wore a helmet when I used to skateboard :P.



But back on topic the 4th one is actually pretty good save for the sky. If you compare it and the 1st image the 4th just has a way better composition. To be honest the 1st looks more like a quick snapshot :(

Using a technique where I fire the 'bulb' and do a couple of seconds of panning, makes quite a cool effect although I think it needs a tripod to work well.

Only good one:



The rest really seem like tacky tourist snapshots, not meaning o be offensive or anything. You used the slow sync flash technique, am I right?


To be honest, what annoys me is the focus and the lights in a lot of them. I feel as if the light is extremely distracting, and draws away from the photos impact. In the aforementioned photo, it works well however, creating a sense of dynamism, which the other photos lack. The other photos look tacky in comparison.


Just my two cents :unsure:
