Strap on your roller skates and strike a pose, because May is National Photograph Month! Whether you like taking family photos, selfies, artistic shots, or even videos, there’s one thing all photographers agree on: good photos need a good subject and a good setting. This National Photograph Month, learn how to take the perfect pic of friends or family. Snap an action shot while roller skating.
Lights, Camera, Roller Skates!
- Choose a subject. This can be a friend, family member, or inanimate object (like a pair of rental skates) if you’re going for a more artistic look. If you choose a friend or family member, remember that he doesn’t need to consider himself “good” at roller skating. The only thing that will matter is whether or not your subject is having fun!
- Line up the shot. Take a second to figure out which way you want to take the photo. For this particular activity, we recommend taking horizontal photos so you can get the whole skating rink in the shot.
- Strike a pose. Whether you’re skating, standing still, or racing a friend, pretty much anything you do while skating will be picture-worthy! If you’re taking an action shot, adjust your aperture or take burst pictures on your smartphone.
- Upload it. What good is a picture if you don’t share it? If you’ve taken a picture at Skateland, share it with the world! (Not to brag, but we’re pretty photogenic). Feel free to tag us in it too! We’d love to see how you enjoy our roller skating rink.
Flash a smile and strap up your skates for National Photograph Month! To celebrate this awesome month, share pictures of you and your friends skating in Bradford and tag Skateland on social media.
