Behind The Lens

Location
Burleigh Heads, Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. This was my first attempt at taking photos of people surfing.
Time
Woke around 2 am was a little foggy outside and decided on the spur of the moment to head south and capture the lights of surfers paradise from different angles. It was one of the coldest mornings I could remember and doing everything I could to try and stop trembling from the cold. Watching both the waves, the surfers and the sunrise was a mesmerising experience with the sounds, sites and colours.
Lighting
The sun had just cleared the horizon illuminating the peaks of the waves. At this time of morning it was still fairly low as I was shooting into the sun.
Equipment
The photo was shot with an Olympus omd em-5 MK II 1/500 sec. f/4.8. 75 mm Lens was a, Olympus M.zuiko ED 75–300 mm f4.8 –6.7 II Lens, hand held.
Inspiration
I was looking to shoot different angles of Surfers Paradise early in the morning as I have never seen to many morning shots of this area. The surfboard riders were an added bonus, as well as the colours of the sunrise. Some of the landscape shots of Surfer Paradise had some surfers in them. I guess this is why they call it Surfers Paradise. I then turned my attention to the board riders to my right zoomed in and started shooting.
Editing
I try to stay away from post processing as much as i can. Usually I will play with sharpness, the tone and contrast
In my camera bag
Olympus em5 MKII M.Zuiko 45mm, 60mm Macro, 12-40mm and 75-300mm. Tripod, filters. Cable release, A Flash that is rarely used
Feedback
Be prepared for anything, all types of Weather. The diversity of colours and situations. I've always believed to plan ahead for each trip as its amazing how the weather and light can change your ideas on the move. However, this one time was a spur of a moment trip. Don’t be afraid to move to a different location for a different angle of the same shoot, when doing landscape photography, as it could mean the difference between a good shot and a great shot
