Day 1 of Bowl-A-Rama 2010 kicked off at the Waitangi Park skate bowl in Wellington today. Rain threatened earlier on, but held off for just enough time to run a few rounds.
I went bowl side with the 15mm fisheye lens & off camera flash to shoot the action of some of the best skaters in the world. The guys were really pushing out there today & livening it up for all of us shooting photos & videos bowl side. And believe me you have to get within a meter & less of the guys to get a good shot with the fisheye, but the results are certainly worth it.
The above photo was shot with the canon 70-200mm/f2.8 so I was at a reasonable distance away from the action for that one, but the two photos below were shot with the fisheye.
I’ll be back for the finals action tomorrow – lets hope the weather holds!
