    I had fun shooting these kids...I don't know if they (my shots that is...the kids were really good I thought) are any good but it was fun to watch them. They were pretty cool with having the old lady with the camera there.

    I gave the two whose names I found out my flickr address and a contact email so they can get ahold of me if they want me to send them the shots. They liked that.

    I'm jealous. I"ve been wanting to do this sort of thing for a while. My favourite is the last one.

    Thanks B and Kat....
    A couple more from the day that I liked....
    I thought I would throw up a colour version of a previous shot...lemme know which one is preferred:




    LoL..... bonus points that they were playing awesome music I was listening to back in my day...Filter, Econoline Crush, Nirvana, Soundgarden, etc...
    I think all in all I did okay for a first try at this type of shooting...I learned a few things and will go back and apply them....anybody has any suggestions on how to improve this kind of shot by all means throw them out there as I was winging it for the most part.

    B&W for the "unknown kid". In the color version, he starts getting a bit lost, and the people in the background become a lot more obvious. He's definitely the center of attention in the B&W.

    The painted swimming pool shot is great, too. Too bad there's so much background stuff to the right. I like that the skateboarder is part of the picture as a whole, instead of the main subject, but he's just on the border of being easy to miss.

    As for improvement - I don't know about you, but for me it would involve going back a lot, watching the rhythms of the people, and still probably wading through huge numbers of shots to find the few that were dead on.

    Excellent shot of unknown kid in B&W Casil.
    Reality is a nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there!

    Nice set Casil,

    well done for getting out there and taking these shots, I walk past my local skating park everyday, and don't dare to get close, let alone get out a camera and start shooting...

    nice job

    Why wouldn't you dare? I bet the kids would love to have their picture taken. or are you afraid to be arrested?
