    Front Flip

    To wrap up this week of parkour photography, I’ve got another shot from the same photoshoot as “Side Flip-Out.”

    Feiyue

    Travis Noble Graves of the Tribe wrote a review of Feiyue shoes for American Parkour a few months ago. He featured my photography in the article and even though I’ve previously linked to that article, I wanted to share those images here on the blog.

    Side Flip-out

    Travis Noble Graves of the Tribe is depicted here doing a side flip off of a slightly raised platform. I like to pretend that the giant hand in the background is giving him advice. Go up, dude. Go up.

    Anatomy of a Kong

    This sequence image shows Knox Konging over a rail in Washington, DC.



    This was a fun image to put together. OnOne Software has released an application called “Perfect Layers” for Lightroom that allows you to stack images and then combine them in this fashion. The app is a tiny bit clunky, but it works perfectly for something simple like this, and they’ve released it for free. It’s not a trial, the full application is free!

    I finished the image in Nik Color Efex Pro 4. I don’t typically like to make my images “unrealistic,” but there is something about Parkour and Freerunning that makes me want to do a bleach bypass or increase the mid-tone contrast.

    Wall flip

    Knox running up the wall just prior to doing a backflip off of it.



    Sometimes, the shot before the shot is the best one, and I think that is definitely the case here. Knox is an incredible athlete, and even though I’ve seen him do a wall flip at least 20 times, it still impresses every single time. I captured the entire sequence of the wall flip, but this was my favorite frame.

    Knox and Frosti of The Tribe
    —————————————————-

    We did some shots for The Tribe before they headed to NYC for a performance. In between setup shots I grabbed some candids, and not so candids of Travis and Knox. These guys are big hams and love the camera, I don’t know if you can tell. 

     
  10. Photo of the Day - May 18, 2012

    The speed vault is basically the first essential step towards learning the technique and commitment involved in overcoming rails and walls during a Parkour run.

    ——————————————

    In this photo Knox is vaulting over a high barrier, which is followed by a three or four foot drop. From his position in the photo, he was probably 6 or7 feet off the ground. Visit American Parkour to see a tutorial on how to do a speed vault.
