In true Pflugerville fashion we met Nick because his mother and my wife teach together. Love living in our small town with big city access. Anyhow our session was intended to just be casual photos around Old Settlers Park in Round Rock. Nick is a pretty chill guy so we played this loose and laconic. While talking during the first setup it came out that he also longboarded, and yes, do you have it with you? No, but his dad wasn’t faraway. In the meantime don’t joke about hanging from a tree or we will call your bluff!
Once the longboard arrived, Nick changed to the laid back outfit and we tried to capture the feel and vibe of longboarding. We had decent light and played with action, slow shutters and fisheyes all in the parking lot of the Dell Diamond. I knew I also wanted some different looks so we pulled out the lensbaby for the black and white where we blurred out the leading lines. And then the final image was my favorite of the day! Setting sun and a very gridded parabolic reflector from way above for the dramatic look.
You just never know the direction a session will take and we try to be ready for the ebbs and flows. The flow of the longboard led to the last image and I bet it is your favorite right?
