A couple weeks ago, Tate Nations, master of skateboard photography, was nice enough to do a tutorial for the 365 Podcast which I cohost. During the same episode, I did a tutorial on shooting high contrast black and whites. Tate said he’d try my technique if I’d try some of his.

So this weekend, I went down to a local skate park and the guys there were nice enough to allow me to take a few pics of them. I might not be Tate yet, but I’m quite happy with how they came out. It’s always nice to get out of the studio and its great to have the opportunity to do something different. Still, I think I’ll be returning to models soon.
