True Grit Skateboarding

Posted in Images, People, photography, Uncategorized on June 27, 2007 by anuvuestudio

This is my first try with the newest look in photography. It’s referred to as the “dramatic photo gritty look”.  Oh so technical huh! It’s works with desaturation and filters allowing pixels to granulate…oh and you do need to have a decent image. I’m a big fan of untouched photography but I do think the new desaturated look I’m seeing in magazines is pretty cool looking. I think the gritty final appearance lends itself perfectly to this sport. I’ve got several shots to work on but I’m going to focus on 3 of the most talented skaters and show each individually.

The Skater

Recently I was driving in an area I wasn’t familiar with and I came upon a set of skateboarding pools under a freeway in the middle of nowhere. My Nephews are both skaters for Vans but I have always left their photo taking to their Mother. I stopped to watch these guys who were more than friendly and ended up spending hours shooting and admiring each one’s style. I’m going to work on some new “photo gritty” techniques perfect for skateboarding so I may decide to post a new skater each day (depending on how it goes). My skateboard, as I recall, was red with silver metal wheels. It’s probably worth a small fortune now…

This first one was left untouched and uncropped. I loved the painterly quality to it.
