While I was in Balboa Park photographing a few of the Pear Trees in bloom I couldn’t resist shooting this skateboarder doing a 360 flip at the fountain (yes he landed it).

I am in Colorado Springs this week at The Summit Series Sports Photography Workshop.
I will try to do a little post everyday but we’re working about 12-14 hours a day so it doesn’t leave a whole lot of time.
Most of this afternoon was spent at a local skatepark with a few local rippers.
The use of remote flashes and great clouds made for some interesting photographs.
All photos were made using 2 off camera remote flashes triggered by radio poppers.
Enjoy:

Shooting with the sun behind your subject is fun when using remote flashes.

While I photograph a variety of action sports, skateboarding happens relatively frequently due to the fact that the elements and conditions don’t need to come together as much (no rain is the main factor). I recently completed this skateboarding photo shoot up at the Mutiny Ramp. A new bowl was just installed on one end of the half pipe. This was the first session on the ramp after it’s completion.
