Surf Shoot

Headed down to Sand Bay near Weston-Super-Mare this past weekend to play about with some strobes as a sports feature test shoot. Managed to rope in an old friend who surfs a bit and think we came away with some cool stuff… Check inside for some images

Nick’s an old mate from school and taken a bit of banter from his housemates for helping out, but I recon he’s done a pretty decent job and helped me out massively at the same time so fair play to him. (oh and he also lost a pair of Oakley’s – sorry dude!)

No surfing of course as everywhere was flat as a pancake but got some stuff on the beach waiting for a sunset picture i had in mind but ended up slightly missing the full Sun above the horizon, and a lovely reflection in the wet sand, looking for said Oakleys, but still happy! I also had a play with some super fast flash durations to freeze water. Slightly compromised with me struggling to accurately chuck a bucket of water and triggering the camera with a remote at the same time so assistant required when i do it again so I can direct exactly where i want the water throwing and focus on shooting. Still got some nice frames though. Enjoy and let me know what you think at the bottom – oh and share if you’re feeling generous!!)
