You can shoot skate photos however the hell you want—we’re not here to preach. But we are here to help. And what better way to learn than from mistakes? (Ideally, someone else’s.) So, to separate the good from the ghastly, let’s review common missteps from our own Photograffiti. And remember, there’s no such thing as an “incorrect” skate photo...except for ass shots. This ran in the June mag and here's another look.

Unhappy Feet

pgc1
There’s either solid control or a squirelly-looking bail-fest. Feet don’t lie.


The "Unnngh!"

pgc2
Forced style + fear of commitment = weird hip/limb exertion. Relax, dude.


Space Invader

pgc3
Photographers and filmers: in each other’s way since 10,000 B.C.


Jackie Chan

pgc4Flip tricks are quick. Miss the shot and you’re stuck with kung-fu air gymnastics.


Fish-Eyesore

pgc5
This lens makes shitty mountains out of crappy molehills.


High Beam

pgc6
Eye contact, horns, gargoyle face...on an ankle-biter rail?


Doubles

pgc7
Synchronized ollies between best friends make Grandma happy, but skaters sad.


Rocket Man

pgc8
Oh nose! When the front of the board is aimed at heaven, the shot looks like hell.


Ass Shots

pgc9
Be it “Attack of the Flying Man Cheeks” or “Ichabod Crane: the Headless Ass-Man,” this angle stinks.


Filtered

pgc10FIX
You can’t spell Photoshop without P-O-O-P.


Micronaut

pgc11
When the grab is early, the stoke is not just late, it’s never going to arrive.


Clone Wars

pgc12
Too much of a mediocre thing is a mouse-click away.
