Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken from a beach called "Log Cabins" on Oahu's North Shore. Log Cabins is not as famous as the nearby Bonzai Pipelines, but has a similar barrel wave break.
Time
Mid-afternoon
Lighting
To achieve a satisfying post-process, it is best to capture a high contrast image, so it helps if the sun is out and not diffused.
Equipment
Sony A7rIII with 100-400mm lens, Feisol tripod.
Inspiration
Surfers are incredible risk takers but can also be very introspective, so when I saw the combination of a pensive surfer with a large wave framing him in the background, I knew I had a nice story to capture.
Editing
Yes, I cooled down the temperature to suggest a later time of day, and extensive vignetting to draw the viewer to where I want them to go.
In my camera bag
telephoto zoom, wide zoom, standard 50mm
Feedback
Use the middle of the day to scout your locations and subjects, then capture at the ends of the day. Don't skip the scouting process or you will shortchange yourself out of the opportunity to expand your creative vocabulary.
