Skateboarding With 4x5

These are some recent 4x5 photographs I took while skateboarding with some friends. Im really interested using the 4x5 to photograph skateboarding, something I feel hasn't really been done in the skate magazine industry. To me, it gives the photograph a totally different feel and perspective, compared to the typical fisheye photos used in skate magazines. Super stoked on how these came out.

4x5 + fisheye...and get some Andreas Gursky sized wall prints made. CAN IT BE DONE??

thinking about about a fisheye on a 4x5 makes me cringe.

I'm all about the huge prints though.

Very cool

Close enough (110 degree FOV): Schneider 47mm f/5.6 Super Angulon XL

...apparently fisheyes don't/can't exist because fisheye distortion is a product of helical focusing lenses, which don't exist for view cameras.
