I will be using flash for my images I plan to use this to illuminate the image and have the rest of the scene quite dark. This will also tie into the time that I plan to photograph the skaters which is around 4pm. Ring flash is the type of flash I will be using and its very direct and can be overpowering if not balanced with the natural light correctly.
This lighting is reminiscent of crime scene photos lighting. it has a dark almost criminal feel to it that is something I am aware of this and think that in a skate photo context it will work very well as skateboarding is still something that is seen almost as a anti establishment, rebel.
