Not a whole lot of skating going down for me at the moment – the joy of fatherhood!

This is a bit of an experiment really. It was my first time out with my new 1d mark 1. My first time shooting a sequence, and specifically my first time shooting a sequence with flashes – in at the deep end!

My lighting set-up was pretty ugly – there’s at least one visible flash in every shot! It was a pretty hard feature to light; I had my flashes on really low power to get the recycling times I needed to light up every frame, so I ended up with them really close in and one pointing at the camera. Poor form.

Anyway, for what it’s worth, here it is!

Yet another installment of the incredibly civilised Hell Tour. Usual crew, plus a few heads from the Sidewalk forum apparently. Ramp city is amazing, the Simparch bowl got a pretty heavy sessioning and as Wes said, it was great to see Pigdog and Bob in their natural habitat!

Anyway enjoy the photo’s after the jump.

Wes has finally passed his driving test and to celebrate he took us on a trip up to Birmingham to skate the Ideal Miniramp. It was kind of half skate-mission, half motorway driving lesson. As another little bonus it was the first skate trip for my new camera. Woop woop!

Check out some more pics after the jump
