Curse you nap time, because of you we screwed up! Not to say there aren't some cool shots, just not what we planned...and that sucks! Ok, frustration rant over, lesson learned, here's what happened...
Photos, the rest of the story and where you can comment cursing nap time after the break!!
FIREFOX USERS, YOU MIGHT HAVE TO HIT READ MORE TO SEE THE VIDEO!!
So first thing is first!!
WE SCREWED UP!!
We made a very bad call and changed locations right before the photo shoot! Normally this is not a big deal, but with these action shots...horrible decision. Can you believe all this bad stuff because of nap time! For some weird reason we couldn't find a good angle, we're usually good at this stuff but this day it just wasn't working. We kept referring to the other location and I think that had something to do with it - we mentally blocked ourselves!
The point we want to make is that pros, amateurs and beginners all screw up...hello we're human! So don't be to hard on yourselves if your pictures don't come out as cool as you'd like. Crap happens and life goes on! You live, you learn and hopefully you do not repeat!
Luckily this was not a paid shoot, or we would be in hot water!
Here are a few of our best shots:
And the new parkur master:
So a very and I mean very big thank you to Paulo for taking the time to shoot with us.
Here is our multiplicty shot, the camera was set to 5 frames per second, strobes at 1/16th power. Worked out well, although not the coolest of the cool. We'll make up for all of this on friday.
Just to let everyone know, he is for hire. He has a company that specializes in extreme sport exhibitions. So if you are looking for an amazing show that will be sure to amaze everyone, he's your guy.
