Nick DeMarchi ONE Photo Journal

“Spring is here in Western New York, which means longer days, warmer temperatures, and finally leaving the skatepark to skate some street. Taking advantage of this, a few of us were in Rochester this past weekend for a day of skating and shooting. Towards the end of the day we ended up at Kodak World Headquarters at these marble ledges. This photo seemed to take forever to shoot, with the traffic to blame. From Josh’s first attempt, to his forth attempt and final shot, seventeen minutes had passed. I was shooting across four lanes of traffic, and needed all four to be clear or a car would have been somewhere in the bottom of the shot. When Josh’s landing was clear, there were cars passing in the closest lanes to me, and when my shot was clear Josh would have landed in front of a bus and been flattened. The plus side of things taking so long is that I was able to notice the reflection of the building behind Josh in the sunroof of a car, and placed that in the bottom third of the frame which made for a much better composition than the street. This was a two flash setup, both camera right. ISO 200, f5.6, 1/125sec, 120mm” – Nick DeMarchi.
