The ninth from this series of planned rider portraits for Fixed Gear York.
Up this week it’s the turn of long standing FGY rider Ryan. The man with the (still disputed) longest skid title, currently learning to use his words in a journalistic styling. Again the look is that of a man being kept from his ale & midget gems, after a brisk chase back to the FGY office.
It was a hot one yesterday, making the band shoot in the afternoon a rather steamy affair. This one I spotted later and figured it’d make a suitable 365 in between getting a few performace shots for the band also.
Hot, hot, hot, day out at the YSP. Always good for interesting compositions. Good day for the ND filter.

Sorry to you good people who like to come here for a good rant/debate on photography & art, I’ve been rather busy of late to put together a good post on the subject. Plus after the last one I’ve mellowed a little for the time being. I’m hustling hard at the moment, trying to shift focus a little (or rather clarify focus). This normally happens around the half way point of the year as I look over my year plan from January as see where things are going. I’ve found that this 365 project has at times taken too much of a lead, hence the rather shorter blog posts of late, just need to find the balance between paid and personal work again. I’m still revelling in the challenge of the 365 so thanks for hanging in there with me to those who like to pop in every now and then.
Just saw the potential for a sneaky 365 during some down time on todays shoot. The power and fun of an iPhone, just playing around with compositions, lines, diagonals, thirds. I almost forgot why I was there in the first place . . . . . . . . . .

Somewhat simpler and in many respects I prefer it, however it’s good to break ones style now and again. I guess the second shot is the one I’d expect myself to shoot which is why I chose the diagonal one for the 365, mix things up a little.
We even managed to somehow body swerve all of the really really black rain clouds to get the real shooting finished for lunch. It has been raining pretty much since we called a wrap. Phew!
