This shot isn’t even that old, it was taken in 2011 in the infamous Byker (Byker Grove) area of Newcastle. We needed a promo photo for the Seventies catalogue for The Make section so Chris and I headed out to this rail that he wanted to get a grind to grizz on. It’s right outside a metro station (underground) so it’s sometimes a bust but not normally as they’ve usually got bigger fish to fry. We did a few different shots but this one came out the most tweaked, I almost cut his head off on the framing but as he flew higher and faster out of the rail on this attempt.
A simple two flash set up, the main flash was set to F9 and the rim flash would have been about F11 but it didn’t pop as much as I’d wanted. Either way though it came out sweet and we were both happy with it. Enjoy this weeks Throwback Thursday and we’ll see you next week innit.
