If you're using autofocus, change it to the Al Servo mode. Like wgp said, use the manual modes, you will learn much faster. If you want to stay close to auto, use the shutter priority mode. I do that sometimes to save time setting up even though it doesnt save much work.

Try using your flash to get the looks on their faces, and get low. Otherwise, it's a good start.

Edit: Gienek beat me to the fill flash

Get em from different angles, quit taking pictures of their backs. Give your subjects room to move by keeping them outside the center of your picture.

Good enough start though.

You need to get in there. Get in so close that you feel that your camera will be broke. Without the proper equipment, those pictures are boring. The only one that is starting to work is the middle one because of the gesture the skater creates, however, the background is very distracting to noticing such. what you really need is some fill flash on a slave, and a wide angle lens.

If you know anything about paintball, you should know that your gun can shoot 28+ bps as long as you have a bunch of HK sticker on your tank and hopper, where have you been?

Knew it began with an M. I will try to find pictures of my friends skating, two of them are amazing, but one of them recently ruptured his spleen down a double kink 14 stair, he was doing a frontside to backside royale switchup when his skates got caught up on the kink, and he supermanned about 10 feet to sidewalk.
