Dan Ives - Fishbrain

The other week I was surprised by a phone call from Saffron Walden's ripper and good friend Dan Ives, this initial surprise was surpassed by the shock of learning he was now residing in Brighton and was coming back for a few days and wanted to skate n get some deal done. This was one of the shots I got of Dan having a session on the most awaked part of the park at Cambridge's Orchard Park skatepark. I shot this trick a few times but with this angle choosing a more unconventional angle through two fences while trying to frame him within the diamond box created by the closer one. I captured this with my Nikkor 50mm and lit with two Canon 540EZ's off to my right set at 1/2th power through diffusers. I've recently been looking into presets you can download for Lightroom and generally experimenting with the program, as a left over image from the shoot I choose to test out a preset I found called . After fiddling with the settings a little I settled with this for the final image.
