“Long-boarders photographs – evening session in the city” – text and images – Ivan Dinev – FRAXYS Ltd.
Long-boarders photographs – a group rolling down the steep streets of Boyana, Sofia, Bulgaria on a summer evening. The first series of photos just went out of the virtual “lab”. I am planning more sessions with the same guys and of course the gals that are riding with them sometimes, so make sure you bookmark / favorite this page and check it often.
The first session was made at the warm evening on 13th of April 2016. The group’s attitude was cool with frequent jokes, show offs and flaunts of various riding tricks and techniques. I am eager to, and looking forward of organizing the next photo session with the same crew. There are some photographs planned, like a still-lifes of the equipment, the process of riding itself, portraits of the participants in the group – single and multiple etc..
Enjoy the first long-boarders photographs – evening session of FRAXYS, and check out for more soon.
Some technical information about the images:
The place is shown at this map, if there are any other long-boarders or skaters, reading this blog and if they would like to try the street for a ride down. It is a fairly large street leading from the city to a rich neighborhood in the suburbs of the capital, and in the foot of Vitosha mountain right next to it at the same place.
And this is a link to the Facebook group of the riders in the country.
The camera used is CANON 40D with a “70 – 200mm f/2.8 L IS USM”, a “16 – 35mm IS USM L II USM” lens and a 580EX II SPEEDLITE flashlight that I bought from eBay years ago, and usually use in more of the photos I make.
