We were out all day with friends and we were losing light fast. But I knew when we rolled by this spot we weren’t leaving without another clip. Jereme was sizing it up on sight. One of the poles from the scaffolding was super close to the dumpster, so it was a tight squeeze. The roll up was a bunch of 2”x4”s laid side by side, perpendicular to the direction he was skating. Every time Jereme rolled up to it the planks would rock up and down as he rode over, sometimes trapping his wheels in the gaps. Setting my Vivitar on the 2”x4”s for a rim light was probably not the best idea, since it kept getting bounced around, but that’s where it needed to be, so it stayed. I stuck my 120j in the dumpster to light him from below, and another 120j on a stand, camera front and right. While rolling up to it a few times, a security guard came out of the building and we had to act like we were just passing through. He gave us a long look and walked back inside. Jereme threw it up a few times just to feel it out. A few more tries later and Jereme got this 50.
