2006 was a great time to be a blader in NYC. B.Unique was exploding, the street scene was huge, many NYC skaters were on the come up, and we had our own indoor skatepark in Brooklyn. We all had so many great memories and took full advantage of having a truly skater owned skate park. Not many people know this, but aside from the parties, raves, poker nights, dodge ball and basket ball games, we had THE BEST sessions while the park was closed to the public. I'm sure most of the footage is lost somewhere and most of it will never be seen again, but I still have a few clips and photos from these secret sessions.
This was probably the first few days I had off-camera flashes, so I didn't really know how to use them too well. I'm pretty sure I had 2 Sunpak flash guns that I would just put on the ground somewhere or in this case I had someone holding them. You can see Courtney Brown (Former co-owner of B.Unique) on the top left of the shot holding one of my flashes for me since I didn't own any light stands. Lighting is sloppy as hell, but not too bad for the first day or two using flashes.
