Surfing shots and various from today
Posted By: jonny1986, 09-07-2008, 01:36 PM

Summer at the end seem s not to end. today i spend the day with the camera.
i shot mostly surfers.
i was in the mood of panning. it was the first time i did it with surfers and i have to make a lot of tries. i think i use a too slow spedd and also following surfers in the right way is very difficult. i spent two hours. at the end it was completely dark and these water's warriors were still there. at the end i had to use iso 1600 and the speed was 1/3-1/10. the lesn stil focus well but the quality f the shts as not so great. here my preferred shots from today:

Jonny,

Very nice series, but I'm partial to your capture in the 3rd shot, and silhouette of the last shot over the sunset. Nicely done!

Regards,
D

Very nice series of shots. Some of those panned shots are very effective, especially the first two.

amazing series. You don't see a lot of panning shots like that applied to surfing but I think it works fantastically.

Really nicely done.

Some great pictures! Love the 4th one the best. Panning isn't easy.

Nice seiers - some really unique looks at surfing from freeze frame to blurred speed. Well done.

I love the slow shutter speed shots. Not your everyday surfing images. Really nice work!
