Photography lets one explore things visually in many ways. I have chosen to select skateboarders and what they love doing and what they use to skate.
I had present this in a more artistic way where you did not see just a shoe or just a skateboarder.
I had to come up with an interesting way to show detail of the shoe and how it was used. So from shooting your action shots like I usually do, I had to focus more on the life style (Subject). So I had a subject to work with now the challenge was how to present it.
The presentation was focused more on close ups, shows you the detail and helps one to focus on the main subject. Creatively I had to present some of these in the dark so that the only thing you will see is the subject. This helped me in defining my subject in a more detailed way.
The ones I had shot during the day, I had to control my focul point, my composition and the subject itself (Art Direction took place).
