“This photo is from a little while back when I was in Rochester, NY, blading for the day. Everybody was skating this bank to dumpster in somewhat of the same way, launching from the bank and grinding or stalling the flat part. Tim had something different in mind and wanted to grind up the dumpster. We shot this a few times, and after a few different shots we came up with this launch to backslide. The lighting setup was pretty basic: two flashes on top of the bank, one right at Tim’s back and another on the other side of the dumpster about 6-7 feet high to light his face, but also high enough that light would spill into the dumpster without leaving a super harsh shadow. With just those two flashes lighting Tim, the front of the dumpster and bank were a little more underexposed than I’d like, especialy considering that I’m already underexposing the sky a few stops to retain detail in the clouds. So I kicked in a litttle fill on the front of the scene from an on-camera flash. Tim and I were both pretty happy with the result as we were trying to showcase his yellow blades, and I think this worked out perfectly with the blue dumpster and dreary skyline” – Nick DeMarchi.

“This bank to ledge is under a bridge overpass, and on a windy day skating to the ledge is like skating through a wind tunnel head on. So the plan was to get there on a day where the wind coming right off the lake about 200 yards away was minimal. Turns out the day Dan called me to go there and shoot the wind was not an issue, but traffic was. After waiting and waiting and a few attempts we got the shot. The light was pretty harsh, and the angle of the sun put the ledge in shade but left all the grass in direct sun, so I had to get a lot of juice out of the flashes to match exposures. With two flashes about three feet apart that covered lighting Dan and the ledge, and a third under the bridge featherd slightly so the bridge didn’t fall into darkness, you see the shot we ended up with” – Nick DeMarchi.

“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.
