Few things disturb me.
1. the signature (try something smaller and more modest, that will not draw the audition's attention).
2. in the 2nd photo the composition is good but you cut his foot and skateboard... What a pity
3. 3rd photo could be nicer if you used the rule of thirds IMHO
4. 4 is good but try using lower angles, skateboarding looks better from low and wide angles.
5. If you get blurry images there is no other solution from setting up higher ISO except using a speedlight (or even two).
6. If you want to get into this type of photography get a wide and fast lens!
Nice photos none the less, my favorite is the 4th.
Thanks for the comments.
I've altered my signiture now (was actually on things to do today) The star on it is from my freelance, and thought it may fit onto the images. However, I'm glad someone else has brought it to my attention.
Yeah, the 2nd photo isn't a crop, it's how it came from the camera. Bit gutted really, but I'm glad it wasnt the whole of the foot etc. Thought I could get away with it lol.
I've altered the third image now, dunno why I wasn't thinking rule of thirds at the time of cropping the image down..
Yeah, towards the end of the shoot on the first day (which was really poor lighting) I had the ISO bumped upto 800 and 1600. Got a fair bit of noise though which was to be expected. Then rain stopped play! Typical Manchester Weather.
In number 4, that was the lowest I could go to take the shot whilst being able to see what I was shooting. My camera doesn't have live view, nor do I have an angular piece to view through lol.
Not sure I want to take a lot of skating pictures, not to the extent that some people do, but I'm looking into getting a 50mm prime sometime soon. I know it's not wide, but for times I need wide, think I'll stick to my 18-70mm kit lens
