The Beer

The browns and grays continue to dominate my work as my daylight hours are spent at this now familiar skate park. I’ve also been spending more time experimenting with video there, but haven’t delved into the thickness of editing that. Let’s just say it’s heavy on the Lensbaby.

This photo is a great example of an image that I think qualifies as having a real first-glance oomph to it. An ingrained “cool” that I perhaps am in constant pursuit of in my exploration. In this instance I think it’s mostly attributable to the total diagonal nature of every line and contour within the frame. Find me a horizontal or vertical line. Try. I tried. I couldn’t.

The other main thing I see here is the magnetic pull towards the right. He’s clearly moving that way. His upper body is suspended mid air overhanging the drop below, to the right. The most prominent lines all fall down to the right. And all of this without leaving the left side boring or empty.

The Beer (and his foot is covering up the rest of that word… I think)
