Behind The Lens

Location
I took this on a cliff in Costa Rica overlooking a black sand beach.
Time
It was mid day
Lighting
The lighting was really interesting because it was overcast but the light bounced off the highlights (white foam) giving it that crazy contrast look.
Equipment
Nikon D7100 and a 300mm Xoom lens.
Inspiration
I was on a surf trip and when the moment strikes you take advantage.
Editing
Yes, but this was only bringing up the whites and dropping the blacks down. Nothing more.
In my camera bag
I usually carry my Nikon D750, the Nikkor 24-85 3.5, Sigma 100-500 zoom lens and a sigma 10-20 mm. I rarely use a tripod but if I know I need it I’ll take that as well.
Feedback
Just pay attention to light and think about the composition before snapping away. It’s these unplanned shots that are the best!
