Fall is here
If anyone wants to get some fall skate photos let me know. Wear a flannel or hoodie and bust a kickflip in some leaves and the crispy air - sounds nice to me.

Skateboarding HDR Tester

HDR ollie
I've been thinking of a way to shoot skateboarding in HDR. This is one way, but I needed a tripod. I learned about another way, but I need to see if my camera is capable of it. If it is there will definitely be more to come. For those not familiar with HDR photography check out this fine link.

Shutter Study

Fast Shutter Speed
The shutter speed for this photo was 1/4000th of a second. About 7 times faster than the one below.
Ollie with FAST shutter speed
Slow Shutter Speed
The shutter speed for this photo was 1/30th of a second. About 7 times slower than the one above. Photoshop didn't blur the action, the shutter speed did.
Ollie with SLOW shutter speed
Both are fractions of a second, but one freezes the blue-flannel-ollie-action and one blurs it. Keller has nice ollies.

Trip to the Pacific from 2003

Took my parents van on a road trip to the coast with a few friends 6 and a half years ago... Zoob ollied into this steep rough and tuff bank thing at a look out point in Joshua Tree.

This is one of my favorite photos. Greg contemplates the vastness.

OP Gold Hour

Went to OP before my night class and ran into Paul. He can ollie real high.

I like how this one turned out even though it's out of focus. We didn't realize the camera was on manual focus mode and I don't have that many photos of myself skating...

Paul's pyramid bouncer. Check the full circle lens flare.

Shooting into the sun is a challenge. Paul has a trick he's working on that I'll be stoked to shoot.
