This is the book I wish I had 5 years ago when I started out taking surf and wave photos.
I wake up every morning well before the sun, grab my camera and head to the beach in the dark eagerly awaiting the new opportunities to shoot.
I have taken tens of thousands of photos in every different weather and light conditions possible and come home every day and studied them. I study why they work, why they don’t, how certain settings affect a shot, new settings, ideas, angles, compositions etc to try again tomorrow.
I have read and re-read everything under the topic of surf and wave photography and picked the brain of surf and ocean photographers at the top of their game, some that have been photographing surfing for 20+ years.
This book is a culmination of all the information I have learnt, tried and tested and is dedicated towards anyone wanting to get into this style of photography.
This book is for people who have bought a DSLR camera and learnt a few of the
basics, or maybe for those who have primarily shot landscapes or portraits. You have started seeing some of the amazing surfing and wave photography out there and want the tips and techniques all in one place so you can spend less time searching for information and more time out getting great photos.
The book covers all of the following topics providing you with everything you need to know to create print-worthy images
Back Button Focus - Focus Modes - Shooting Direction & Light - Shooting Angles - Composition - Camera Settings - Slow Shutter - Understanding Surfing - Tripod Technique - Weather & Surf Reports - Preparation - Gear & Lenses - Cleaning Gear - Editing - Shooting in the Water
I know the information in here will help you as it’s all the information that has helped me so far.
