Was having some fun on the longboard so I decided to get creative with the camera. This was hard to do considering the weight of my Nikon, which was mounted to my monopod and extended 2 feet. Holding this while rail grabbing and in motion. I had seen a shot done by a photographer from New Zealand who actually had a Manfrotto Magic Arm mounted to the front of his board, using a trigger to capture the image. It was a spectacular shot which obviously inspired me to attempt one for myself. It’s very scary seeing your expensive rig just inches off of the street. One small rock could have put an end to all this silliness in a split second.
