NESCAU MegaRamp 2011

At 1st, 2nd and 3rd of July (some days ago), it happened here in Sao Paulo the 2nd stop of the worldwide event, involving sports that your mother would not like you to practice, known as MegaRamp. There were disputes of skate and BMX with the participation of many high talented athletes.

I sure would like to come and say that I was there competing, but no, I was there only at the the 3rd day, just to watch that crazy dudes jumping in the air and take some pictures.

The pseudo professional posture the internet demands us to have if we want to pass some credibility would say that I should not tell that it was the first time I took these kind of pictures where the subject of the picture is far away and moving fast, but, as you all know, I don’t care much to traditional values. (hahaha)

My camera has a good optical zoom, this really helps to find the “scenes”. But the true “tip” I can give to someone trying to take this kind of pictures is to observe the region of the ramp where the athletes tend to use more, then you just have to adjust the camera to that spot, with the right focus and proper zoom and, as if it was a videogame shooter, “shoot” right at the time that the athletes will cross this “window” you prepared.

It would be better if the day wasn't cloudy, so the lights could help more.

But no more talk, take a look at some pictures I took and down bellow you can find the link to my facebook album with all my photos.
