Photographing jibbing rules, seriously. There are so many ways to shoot things creatively. There are colors, textures and features that are incredibly challenging to shoot.
Then there are down rails… Down rails suck to photograph, period. Nothing sucks the wind out of an experienced photographer’s sails like a fucking straight rail down a set of stairs. In fact, I know a couple photographers that leave their gear in the car and play on Instagram until the session moves to the next spot. I’m not one of those guys, but I feel their pain. Obviously, there are some exceptions to every rule and I’m hoping these photos are among those.
So, take your pick of the pics, (see what I did there?) and choose whichever photographically soul sucking down rail photo makes you want to chuck your carcass down some stairs.
Keep submitting photos too! This month’s batch was real nice.
The Firing Squad goes down once a month on Yobeat, courtesy of DAKINE and this month’s winning photographer will receive The Sequence 33L DAKINE camera pack, (so you’ll wanna win.) Since we only choose two photos a month, we ask that you make submissions good (this will also help keep Zimmerman’s blood pressure at a minimum.) You can submit photos at least 980 px wide to [email protected]
