Pic of the Week: Flying High by Graham Campbell

editorial image

I originally took this photograph as part of a camera club competition under the subject Park Life.

It was taken at Rouken Glen skate park where the boys kindly allowed me to photograph them.

It was interesting to observe the etiquette and order of the BMX riders, skate boarders and skaters using the skate park.

The boys were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. James Chalmers is the rider featured.

I used my Nikon D60 hand held in the crouch position to exaggerate the height of the subject against the trees. The lens was set at its widest, 18mm with a fast shutter speed in order to ensure the rider was sharp.

I also cropped tightly from the original image.1/500 sec, F3.5, ISO 450.

Pic of the Week is in association with Eastwood Photographic Society — photography for all.
