It had been a while since I shot skateboarding, but I decided to give it another try. After a short brainstorm session, my buddy Erik and I thought it would be a cool thing to try something different than usual. I wanted this shot to be less set up. We grabbed our boards and went to the street seen in the picture. It's just outside a forest, and a couple kilometers from where I live. The position of the sun was just right. I quickly grabbed my camera. Skating the street from front to back a couple of times, I kept trying to get the right shot. After almost smashing my camera on the concrete, I thought I would give it just one last try. This is the last image I shot in that series. The camera I used for this shot was a Canon EOS 5D Mark II with a Canon 15mm F2.8 fisheye lens. Because the 5D is a full frame camera, the fisheye has a 180-degree angle of view. I used a shutter speed of 1/50 to get that nice motion blur of the street and a little of the background, as well as an F-stop of 16 to get as much in focus as possible.BiographyMy name is Jeroen Nieuwhuis and I live in a small town in the eastern part of the Netherlands. I started photography when I was 11 years old, capturing friends with the camera I got for my birthday. My obsession for photography quickly grew and started to feel like something more than just a hobby, leading me to spend all the money I got on new gear. After a couple of years, my photographic interest shifted to genres other than just skateboarding. I started shooting portraits of friends and posting them on different forums to receive feedback on them. Slowly I developed my own taste in photography and started to look at images differently. Nowadays, I work as a freelance photographer and co-owner of a photography and film studio. Photography has taken me from the cold landscapes of the North Cape to the warm favelas of Brazil. I can't wait to see the rest of this beautiful planet!
