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.
Life Moves Fast – Time To Slow Down
I’ve really enjoyed these past couple of photos because they remind me that time just moves way too fast, and that if we take the time to slow down we can see some really interesting things.
Things that are hidden in our mad rush to get from one place to another as fast as possible, and from trying to fit as many unimportant things in to our lives as possible.
So this weekend, slow down, take a deep breath, have a look around and enjoy yourself.
