Behind The Lens

Location
This Photo was shot at Lighthouse Beach in Ballina, NSW Australia.
Time
Even though it was in the early afternoon and not a great time for shooting, the surf was fantastic with an offshore breeze and incredibly clear water.
Lighting
The light was filtered by a lot of smoke haze in the atmosphere which softened the usually harsh summer sun at this time of day. I have been interested in long exposures of waves for some time and would always have ND filters in the bag, for this shot i used an ND400 filter to slow the exposure down to 1/3 second @ f8 with an ISO of 100.
Equipment
Shot with a canon 5dmk3 and a 70-200 telephoto.
Inspiration
Slowing down the motion of moving objects has been an interest of mine for many years and as a surfer, waves have held a particular interest for me. I love the challenge of getting the shot to work in a more abstract manner. Over the last couple of years I created a series of work called Slow Waves, this was one of them.
Editing
My post processing work is generally done in Lightroom, small adjustments only, like contrast, turning the black up and sometime turning the white down a little for these middle of the day shots as the white water can blow out easily.
In my camera bag
I'm a canon user and in my bag, usually, 2 bodies 5dmk3 and carry a 12-24 sigma wide, a 17-40 and 70-200 f2.8 (my favourite lens of all, tough and versatile) a 2x adaptor (sometimes you just need to get a bit closer) - ND filters - I have a ND4 - 8 and ND400 (very dark but great for those extra bright days) a circular polariser, spare cards, batteries and a couple of lens clothes - especially useful when shooting near water. I keep a couple of go pro's in the bag as well.
Feedback
For this shot I was using a video head, following the waves as they come in, hopefully at the same speed so there is still some definition in the water. It takes a bit of practice to pan smoothly, even if it is only a 1/3sec exposure. You can also use a head leveller if it can be made smooth enough to pan evenly. A fluid head is best though. Waves can look creamy soft but with some sharp definition in the point of interest, like in the barrel, if you can follow the wave well. Sometimes it is just luck. I like to use a large aperture - f2.8 - 5 so the background is a bit softer.
