"Sea Foam Moment" is a high speed capture of an ocean wave surging over a sand berm. So many elements come into play for the foam to hit just right. It normally needs to be an extreme high tide, the right size wave, the right incline of the sand berm and certain other factors. To say the least, this is an extremely difficult shot to capture. It takes hundreds, if not thousands of photos in the right conditions to achieve this magic moment. Thanks for viewing. For more follow on FB and IG. Mahalo

Voted Superb composition, when I saw the thumb nail of this shot I first thought that the blob top/middle looked like the moon had been super-imposed onto the photo, but as it is, I was wrong, it's a better shot will follow. Cheers for sharing.

The right telephoto lens I hope! lol. I assume waterproof housing because you look mounted close to the action. I think it's fantastic!

Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken at the Wedge in Newport Beach.
Time
This was taken midday. Now day this place is so crowded, it is really special to capture this with no one in the frame.
Lighting
This lighting play a big part of this image being so dramatic. Some time the midday light is really flat. On this fall day the lighting was stunning all day. The high lights and shadows really give this some depth.
Equipment
Canon 5D MarkIII Tokina 10-17 Aqua-Tech Water Housing
Inspiration
What inspired me to take this photo is how the fast shutter of our cameras can capture the stunning shapes in water. Shapes our naked eye can't see or just can't process fast enough. Shooting these waves going over the sand berm is a great illustration of that.
Editing
Very little post possessing in this one. I typically turn all the camera setting to neutral. This leaves the photo looking a little flat. To get the photo to look like the actual scene I will usually hit some contrast and curves.
In my camera bag
A couple of camera bodies 300-800 10-17 24-70 70-200 105 Macro Flash 580 Tripod Release cable ND Filter Water housing
Feedback
These types of images are a little tough. Be really to shoot a lot of images and only using a couple. You need to have a high tide and the right angle in the shape of the sand. Very hard to plan on getting this on any given day. I use a wide angle for this one and you have to be very close. I use a water housing and you do get wet. LOL
