Photo of the Week: Aaron Zwaal

Patterns, shapes, lines, depth, tones, a splash of symmetry and a well-dipped toboggan all earned Aaron Zwaal the photo of the week.

“Back in February, Kadeem Eiland was in my town, Nijmegen in the Netherlands, for a BMX Jam. He got here early with a crew and we hit up the streets to shoot pictures with him for an interview in a german BMX Magazine called BMXRider.de and a poster for Dante Distribution where you can find the rest of the pictures of that day here.

The bank of the tobogan is one of the newer spots in town, they built that bridge last year and I really wanted to shoot something on it, we had already shot 2 things with barspins with him so a tobogan seemed fitting, at the time of shooting Simpel Session was playing on the live screen and Kadeem really didn’t want to miss Garrett’s run and we had to shoot it quite fast so I went the ambient route because setting up flashes would take too long.
I used a Canon 50mm f1.4 on a 5DM2 settings were ISO: 800 f2.8 1/125th
Edited in Photoshop with just some black and white conversion and contrast fiddle.”

    Is this a paid theme or did yoou mopdify it yourself?
    Angway keep up thee nice quality writing,
    it is rare to see a nice blog like this one today.

  3. Howdy. Simply just needed to consult a quick issue.
    I’m setting up my own website as well as would like to recognize exactly where you
    still have ones topic? Was the idea no cost?
    As well as seemed to be the idea compensated?

    I can’t apparently come across something just like this blog, so
    hopefully you are able to well then, i’ll learn. Many thanks.
    PS, my i’m sorry. British isn’t our primary
    vocabulary.
