Hillel Dov ONE Photo Journal

September 5, 2011

“It was hot outside and Angelo Ferrer from Art of Rolling set up a shoot for me. So I got my ass all the way from Union Ave in Brooklyn to 168th St. in the City. A kid named Pablo is on the phone trying to explain to me where he is.

Ledges. He keeps swearing I should see ledges. Every time I ask him for some other reference he keeps telling me he’s standing on ledges. I finally see him and can’t help but feel misled. Considering this was a reference for location, I kept looking for something elevated. Whatever happened to calling these planters?! But I digress.

Pablo Munoz and Anddy Feliciano are two talented skaters and they did their thing. Chauncy Jenkins showed up and really got the session going. All of a sudden the ledge wasn’t challenging enough for everyone. I don’t remember who specifically started it, but it became clear that only tricks done over the grating were going to count from here on out. Among many tricks, Pablo laced this fishbrain.

Freeze Fame: Hillel Dov

June 23, 2011

“This was one of the more memorable Lets Roll NY sessions to go down. Billy O’Neil, Jeph Howard, Chris Farmer, Dave Lang, OG NY rippers like Jon Ortiz, Ryan Jacklone, Dave Ortega and others I’m forgetting all showed up to session Pier 62. It was the first session I’d shot in a long, long time and I was having a lot of trouble keeping up with everyone. Farmer laced the soul up the bank ledge to drop soul on the straight ledge. Ortiz hit the backside royale with steez across the whole ledge that Billy O’Neill is disaster fishbraining. Dudes were going off.

I put together this 3D typography experiment for I Roll NY but it wound up not working for the original plans. It’s dope that it’s running now since it was just about a year ago to the day that this was shot.The photo itself doesn’t have a lot of manipulation to it. Standard levels, saturation and sharpening. (Seriously, and no I didn’t add the fucking lens flare in PS) But I did spend a bitch of a time in the new (at the time) repousse plug-in in photoshop. 3D ain’t easy. At some point you kinda have to accept that it’s never gonna look real (at least with my skills) and just focus on the lighting.

Lighting is everything. Even if the textures don’t completely make sense, your brain will accept the 3D as possible if the lighting is right. And perspective, that’s definitely a big one. The right perspective is what makes the text look like it’s sitting and not floating. Like any technique, you need to use it when appropriate. Like drop-shadows, 3D won’t always be the right execution. But to me it send the right message, which is, standing strong in the middle of everything” – Hillel Dov.

Behind The Scenes of The 3 op Reis Film Shoot

September 15, 2010

On Saturday afternoon a film crew from the Netherlandic show, 3 op Reis, filmed local NYC skaters at the Wall Street area in Manhattan, NY for their Dutch travel channel which will showcase skating in their NYC segment. The film crew was inspired to showcase our scene by a previous article on I Roll NY written by Aulistar Mark.

“3 op Reis (translated ‘Channel 3 Travels’) is a series created by a team of passionate travelers, produced by Dutch national broadcaster BNN. We’ve just successfully finished three seasons of 27 episodes each, with good reviews and ratings (around 700.000 – 800.000 viewers on a weekly basis). 3 op Reis is a mixture of the experiences and adventures of the presenters, beautiful shots of the destinations, involvement with the local people and practical information about the destination. It is the leading (and at the moment the only) travel program at Dutch television…” – Leslie Borgers. See more behind the scenes photos from the shoot below. All photos by Hillel Dov.
