Gus Hop Bar

Pseudo rainy day hop bar.


**Photo completely inspired by the "Primary Colors" section by Rob Dolecki in an issue of Dig Bmx**


sb24 w/ green filter, old rokinon film flash with red filter, sb28 with blue filter.


Big ups to Bryan Babbel of for spraying Gus with the hose, and providing water :)


And much credit to Gus Molina for taking the water like a champ even while freezing and obtaining pneumonia.


Criticisms are greatly appreciated. I don't think I've ever shot straight into my flashes intentionally haha.

    My friend first sprayed the whole area down with a hose, then I set up the flashes, then he just sprayed essentially directly at the rider who was about 5 feet in front of the closest flash.

    Cool photo, I saw what inspired it with that same photo setup in the Dig BMX magazine Photo issue last month.

    Nice blatant bite of a photo from the recent DIGBMX photo issue. So lame.
  • Dave Beard 5y

    Yeah, it was totally inspired by that dig bmx picture, I don't know what the photographers name is, but I added it into the description. But thanks for the hate! <3

  • Dave Beard 5y

    haha, thanks. I also talked to the guy from Dig Bmx, and he was completely fine with it, so I don't really see and issue with influence.
