Oxford: SS20′s 25th anniversary skate jam – part 3

Written by Nasir Hamid on October 21st, 2013

Here’s the third instalment of pictures that I made at SS20’s 25th anniversary skate jam which was held at the Meadow Lane skate park in September. I took 3 different cameras with me that day, a 35mm (Nikon FM2), a Pentax 6×7 medium format and a Bronica ETRSi 645 which is what I used for these shots. I love how the colours have come out in the overcast light, they’re just as I remember. The crowd was a mix of some familiar faces from my previous trips to the skate park and lots of people that I’ve never seen there. It was a really nice way to spend the afternoon with a group of people that share the same passion and I even had some nice comments from people that have visited this blog which was a pleasant surprise.

[Tech info:] Bronica ETRSi 645, 75mm/2.8 lens, Fuji 400H (expired) film, dev & scan by Ag Photo lab.

    Beautiful Nasir! You express so much of the character at OWP!

      Thanks very much, Imogen. I think it helps that I’m more of an observer rather than a regular user of the skate park so see things from a fresh perspective.

    Skate jam with no skate photos?

    • Nasir Hamid says:

      That’s right 🙂 A Skate Jam doesn’t happen without people and it’s portraits of people that I enjoy making the most, you know, where you actually speak with them. There were plenty of other photographers doing skate pictures.
