film por vida?

Shooting action (skateboarding in this case) isn't easy with a view camera. I shot these last month on a 4x5 that I checked out from the school. This thing isn't even a field camera; it's meant for the studio. I didn't exactly accomplish what I wanted to--I didn't use my flashes for any of the shots. Here are a couple images. The vignette is from the extreme tilt or shift of the front standard.

Here is a shot from last week that I am pleased with. Anyone that know anything about skateboarding knows how hard it would be to ollie a rail this high. I'll throw in a couple more that I like from the last little while.

awesome job weston! I love the first one on the view camera. I can't believe you checked one out. I can barely stand to look at them.

Wow. These images are amazing. That is all that can be said.

I want to go on a photoshoot with you sometime. Let me know when you are going next.
