The other day I headed down to Trigg Beach to get some more photos of the surfers cutting up the waves. I wanted to try and emulate a pervious shot I had done of a surfer at Trigg Beach but I’m pretty sure I’ve managed to do a better job this time. I wanted to the surfer to less blurry than he was last time, so I upped the shutter speed and I was a lot happier with the result. Both the surfer and the waves are a little more defined which sits well with me.
Again with this shot I find myself focusing more on the motion and emotion of the surfer and the wave than on all the details of the photo itself. I can feel the strength of the wave and the freedom the surfer gets from riding it. I think I’ll keep tinkering with this style of surf photography for a little while longer yet.
After hearing Matthew Saul and Mark Stothard talking about how good the surf was going to be on Sunday I couldn’t help myself and headed down to Trigg Beach to watch the waves come thumping through. Its always heaps of fun and I managed to get a few decent shots as well. Thanks for the tip you two, is there a better way to spend a Sunday morning?
Imagine being able to fly around the world getting surf shots like this!
