Love that you decided to go black and white with this. The contrast is dynamic and really helps the story and impact. It’s a gorgeous shot, well done!

Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken in Aurora, Colorado in Wheels Skate park.
Time
Taken in the late afternoon.
Lighting
The shadows were heavy at that time of day so I had to be careful and make sure I had the correct e posture for the skater facing me.
Equipment
I took this with an iPhone 7+. No extra lens.
Inspiration
I had just purchased the phone and was playing around with the camera. Went to the nearby skatepark, saw this gentlemen skating In and out of the shadows. I decided see how the camera could handle these tough lighting conditions. I was very pleased with the results.
Editing
I converted it to black and white and adjusted the contrast.
In my camera bag
2 Nikon D90 body’s, 70-200 f2.8 lens, 18-80 lens, 80mm f1.8 lens. 2 Nikkor flashes. Also my iPhone X.
Feedback
Watch for cool shadows and other backgrounds to enhance your images. Make sure you expose for your main subject and not for the shadows.
