Rampfest with Tom and Golder

As promised. Went to Rampfest today armed with my new CyberSync triggers to get a decent sequence shot.

Tom decided that a disaster back savannah would be sequence worthy..and it was huge! Loved how he crosses his legs WAY early. Came out pretty good. Cybersync’s did well triggering away at 6+ fps with no misfires. I also put my D.I.Y clamp to the test and it passed with flying colours. Definately need to use some Loctite on the bolts for my D.I.Y spigot as they came a little loose on a few occasions.

Mr. Golder decided to snake in as well..resulting in this gaze inducing 540 over the box.

Johnny Inverted

30 degrees C. The warmest it’s been in six months.

A tin shed is not exactly the best place to be, unless you like roasting. After a rather nice and hot spring Melbourne day Rampfest was a little quiet. I mean I definitely was NOT inclined to strap the boots on.  I snagged this shot of Johnny while the sun was still out, strobeless, going for the natural light look and trying to get in closer comapred to the same invert that I got a few weeks ago. I think I prefer this one. What do you think?

Video editing skills (or lack of..)


Sessions from Rampfest, Prahran and Ballarat skateparks featuring Jamie Nicholson, Hayden Golder and a few others of the Melbourne crew.

Over the past 2 weeks I’ve been doing some filming with my digital camera, wanting to see how it would cope with some of the rollerblading antics that we get upto. That plus I really wanted to use the AFI track.. I liked the build up in it and its not crazy long so pretty easy to get clips for it.

Edited in Sony Vegas, Filmed in AVCHD in SH(best) quality. Music bf AFI.

The NZ brothers showing off their vert skills. Love the invert, something you rarely see these days. In fact, I’m still waiting a new wave of vert skaters to pop up..you’d think the amazing skills of the Yasutoko brothers would some sort of inspiration?! Who wouldn’t want to learn how to do a twister (360 double backflip)…
