Great shot!

Behind The Lens

Location
At the beach of "De Haan" in Belgium.
Time
End of the day - at dusk.
Lighting
Sometimes it's worth waiting for that last sunlight - I like combining the action with shillouettes.
Equipment
My backup camera "Sony RX10" - no tripod of flash used here (never).
Inspiration
As I got to know this friendly local surfer, 'Jurgen Langbeen', I get to learn his tricks and style of surfing. I hoped he would come to the position where I could capture his shillouette and the movement of the waves of the sea in that dusk light. This moment came to my delight ;-)
Editing
I did straighten and crop the image in Lightroom. Only slight adjustments where made to the contrast and sharpening. Perhaps some slight warming up of the color too.
In my camera bag
A selection of mirrorless Fuji gear. But I tend to bring my Sony RX10IV along for hikes or photographing action as I do find the focussing better and faster than my more expencise Fuji gear (to my frustration...)
Feedback
Get to learn your subjects, their way of moving and style. Keep low, I personaly find it helps the composition and the waves seem more allive and impressive this way.
