End of the World NYC Session with Victor Arias

Today I wanted to test out my new Opteka FM Transmitters which I purchased from ebay and what better time then at a huge session in the city. The Valo team Came out to session some street with the NYC locals at a few spots in the city. After a brief rain delay we all made our way to marble ledges on wall street for the second and final spot of the day. As long as I get at least one good shot of the day im content and this shot was that one. The session was packed and almost impossible to get decent photos with skaters constantly crossing in front of the camera. It didn’t even seem to phase anyone that the end of the world was minutes away. I saw Victor going for a sweet negative makio (on of my favorite tricks) on the marble ledge. Communication with your subject is one of the most important steps to Capturing a decent shot. I spoke with Victor and informed him of my light setup and where I would be firing the speedlights.  I took about 2 tries but I got the shot that I was looking for.

My setup for this Shot was @ Nikon SB600 speedlights,Opteka RFT-40 fm triggers Nikon 70-200 2.8 V.R. and Nikon D90. Overall the Opteka Triggers are pretty good for the money, I was satisfied and can’t wait to shoot some more with them. For those who came out today the rest of the shots will be featured on and  www.  shortly. Overall the session was pretty fun aside from the rain.  Thanks to everyone who came out today and showed support to not only Valo but for the NYC skate scene. Oh yea, I started shooting portraits with my new Nikon N80 film SLR so once those get developed I will scan and Blog about each shot. Until Next time…
