Makio

This was a late night session with just Chris Lorimer and myself. A strictly shooting session, no warming up or anything, for which I give much respect to Chris. These stairs came out of a parking structure in Santa Barbara and little to no run-up, a fact that Chris overcame by hurling himself up the steps opposite this stair set and rolling the few feet across the top before jumping onto the ledge. Many variations of tricks were done before we got this shot, including makio and soul the rail, soul and back royale on the ledge, and even soul with soul foot on the rail and front foot on the ledge. Madness! A number of bystanders from the nearby Pub were cheering on the entertainment, including a number of loose-lipped ladies on mom’s night out… I lit the shot with Nikon Speedlights, one to the right, coming from behind, and the other at camera left illuminating Chris from the front and creating a slight trapped shadow. Shot on a tripod at 1/5 @ f/3.5 ISO 250 so I could pull the ambient light. Lens, Nikkor 18-70mm on a Nikon D300 body. — Scott Moffat
