As I mentioned in my first post here at Skate Sessions , I usually have to skate alone due to the lack of booters left around here. This had made it extremely difficult for me to document my sessions with photographs. That was until I had an epiphany: I could use my camera’s self-timer to take photos of myself!
Now I have to admit that this isn’t the easiest task, since the only viable timer is a 10-second delay. So, to achieve a successful photo I have to first find a place where I can stand the camera and have the rail/gap in the frame. Once I set and activate the 10-sec countdown, I have to skate into position and throw my trick hoping that I land the trick, and also end up in frame when the camera takes the shot.
I’d recommend that any of you out there that find yourself skating by yourself, with a camera that has a timer, try this out. It is a great way to get some pics of you rolling and sometimes it’s the only way.
