Every Monday I show a travel photo from some of my journeys around the world including local spots in Australia like Darwin, Townsville, Brisbane and Alice Springs to overseas like Japan, London, Budapest, California, Vienna and the Netherlands.
We are not travelling far today from where I live. We photographed Matt Forshey a few months for a UK based magazine called Scoot Nation. We needed around 7 shots for the article. This spot is right down town. A very old rollerblading spot but always a good warm up. Matt nailed this boardslide after some serious waxings of this rail.
Photographed this with my 1Dsmk3 and 15mm fisheye. I had one flash in frame to light up and whole rail from behind him, One flash over my head and far back as my main light for the subject and to spill across the ground without leaving a shadow from me. One more flash as a separation light hitting Matt on his far side to make him pop from the background and light up some of that wall in the right of frame.
This was the opening frame for Matt’s interview in the magazine.
