Freeze Fame: Sam DeAngelis

“As spring reared it’s head around an ugly winter in the Tri-State, I took the first available opportunity to start shooting street again. On a beautiful weekend in May I gathered some of New York’s finest to blade some untouched spots hidden within the clutter of Northern New Jersey. After a long day of filming, we ended the day with a stop at the infamous Seton Hall University. With a campus like Fort Knox, I was surprised how quickly I convinced the gaurs at the front gate that the caravan behind me was simply there to explore the facility. After shredding the mellow kinked handi-rail I noticed OG Dom Blanchard lacing this intensely acrobatic Lui Kang 540. Dom states, “I’ve been skating since I was like 11 yrs old. I’ll be 30 in July. I’m from the Ryan Jacklone era of NYC. When you could show up the brooklyn banks and see Rawlinson Rivera, Victor Calendar, Joe Dedentro, Jon Ortiz, and Dave Ortega skating.” With experience and years of conditioning it was a pleasure to shoot with Blanchard. After a couple of tries we landed this shot at a focal length of 50mm. My Canon T2i was set at F4 with an exposure of 1/160. I had two strobes placed on Dom’s Lui Kang 540. One to the left and another tucked in a bush to the lower right” – Sam DeAngelis.
