In honor of spring, this week’s photo is warm and colorful. It’s in your face and unavoidable- a classic quarterpipe lookback angle. I think that if the corner of the ramp was not visible on the lower right side, it would not be a successful photo- it would be an obscured, out-of-context newspaper photo. The ramp brings it all together, even if just that tiny bit in the corner.
“It was a long filming day with Piotr Leszczynski in his hometown (a mining town) Bierun, Poland. There is only one small skate park and its simple – the favourite place where Leszczu rides. All the year my fisheye lens stayed in my backpack and I really wanted do some close shots with it. Leszczu is a very good rider, he’s always ready to try one more when the photo was not perfect, I really like his colorfull bike its always looks great in every single shot and its easy to set the light. To do this shot I used the Canon 5d2 with Tokina 10-17 fish, 2x sunpak 555- one on left, second on right and Canon 540ez in hand by my head.”
