It's nice to be back!
Horkan and Hound, 25mm 1.8
Sean, 45mm 1.8
Great action! I skateboarded for a couple years as a kid but was never able to do much with it at all.
Nice, I wonder if you skate with my friend Sean's friends over there.
the first one is amazing!
Great photographs. The first and third are special.
Thanks guys! Couple more to share...
Manny, going big...
This one was shot in pretty awful light conditions. Lipslide over the middle of the road.
Back lip and 5-0 are really nice. Not sure where the runup and rollaway is on the one that looks like a nollie flip, it looks a little bit confusing to me, maybe fisheye would have worked? These are all quite good man
Just figured it was a trick off the kicker down the three, looks like a bs flip then, my bad dude
Yep, you got it, backside flip out of the kicker. Sold my fisheye not long ago but recently had the pleasure to try the Olympus 8mm 1.8 which I am going to try and get a hold of.
Awesome that there are other skaters on this forum.
Did you manage to get an idea of how wide it is vertically compared to the Rokinon 7.5mm? Angles of view aren't so precise at such wide angles so it's hard to predict just by focal length. Currently filming with the Nikon mount Samyang 8mm+speedbooster for width, and shooting with the 7.5mm, but if the Olympus is noticeably wider than the 7.5mm vertically, then a switch would be plausible. F1.8+weathersealing sounds really appealing.
This is so coooool! I'm not sure how many people do use payphones nowadays, so I believe this is set up...or is it? In any case, this has some kind of retro cool to it. Nice job! This might work as B&W also.
It was very brief using it and couldn't shoot with my own card so I don't really have anything to compare, I would say the angle of view is pretty much the same as the Samyang or there abouts. A 1.8 fisheye is pretty exciting for video use though to me, I don't shoot many stills with a fisheye.
Thanks a lot! You've got me, I was shooting the same shot without someone in the photo booth at first then a friend jumped in jokingly but I told him to stay in there. I agree, I think I might even have a black and white edit somewhere!
