I know everyone makes fun of scooter kids at skate parks, but I couldn’t help but snap this shot of this guy zipping past me on the table top. – It was his first time on a scooter and potentially in a skatepark. But something had come over him, Like he realized anything was possible. – It felt as though, He had watched people in skate parks do tricks and ride up and down on ramps, but felt as though, It was a long shot for him to ever be able to do that. – Until, he jumped on the scooter and became invincible…. So it seemed.
You know that feeling you get when you feel like you have the power to change the world?
Thanks for reading.
I was heading out on a local adventure with a couple friends a few months ago and ran into a group of people lighting off sparklers for their friends nineteenth birthday. – So I asked if I could take some pictures of them.
I had probably owned my Canon 60D for about a month at this point and relatively felt like I was an expert. – Much like a lot of people who own DSLR cameras feel like. 🙂
I cracked my shutter speed wide open and started playing around with it and learning quickly the do’s and don’ts of iso/aperture management when changing shutter speeds.
I’m sure that in post I could brighten these up a lot and really make the colours shine and wow the viewer of these photo’s, but I lke to admire the fact that we are able to draw with light onto a sensor inside a mechanical box. And then these images come out.
A smile can change everything, it can explode into so many words and feelings but still remaining a smile. I love this shot because it feels like I captured an explosion from a smile.
