Steve Phillips Alamosa Skatepark – Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Steve get'n down in ABQ.

After a year of slacking off I return to the scene of my first blog post. This is going to be one of those random things where I’ll chat about a photo. All the camera info can be seen as well as my reasonings behind the image.

Camera: Canon EOS-1D Mark IV

Shutter: 1/320 s

Aperture: f/5.6

Exposure Setting: Manual

ASA: 100

Strobe Flash: Did Fire @ 1/4 power

Lens Focal Length: 15 mm Canon Fisheye

White Balance: Auto

This is going to be one of those random things where I’ll chat about a photo. All the camera info can be seen above but reasons are going to be down here.

Rider info – Steve Phillips from Mt. Pleasant, Mi.

Location – Alamosa Skatepark  Albuquerque, New Mexico.

I have been getting more into using strobes for most of the shooting I’ve been doing. This particular image I used a 430EX II Speedlight attached to camera via Canon Off-camera shoe cord. The flash was mounted on a Voice Activated Light stand (Cauy) just to camera left. I tend to not shoot in ETTL modes as I feel I want to be in control over the light  and I’m really kind of dumb when it come to ETTL. For this image I stepped outside of my 70-200mm comfort zone and shot as wide as I guess I could with the equipment I have. Image is also cropped in camera and not in post (Lightroom 3). My biggest and really only complaint about this image is that it looks like Steve has only one arm.
