New Color

I’m in love with color, mostly the vast arrays of changing light during sunrises and sunsets. The light skims across the surface of the water and the hues of the sky become alive. Unfortunately clarity is an issue as the light fades, I recently purchased a flash for my water housing so I can better illuminate my subject in the failing light. It adds another 2LBS  making the totally weight around 7-8LBS and it’s not arrow dynamic cutting thru the water so, I feel like my balance is off and I’m struggling to maintain a horizon because its top heavy. Here was my first attempt on a super glassy 2-3 foot day at Robert Moses State Park. Many Mahalo’s for my friend Neal for staying in the water extra late to help me practice.

There was enough light when we first started that the flash wasn’t needed, Plus I need to understand range of my Flash (check out the moon)

Normally he would be a silhouette shooting into the sun but the flash added just enough color to make this shot

Too Far away and the flash doesn’t even matter.

The Flash actually made this too colorful and its was super red and over exposed so I bumped up the contrast and made it black and white, around this time I was having issue with focusing, the camera couldn’t find a focal distance in the dark.

This obviously wasn’t the best shot but it illustrated perfectly the concept I was going for, Perfect clarity in almost no light.

In between sets and at the end I wanted to try to get a few beach break barrel shots. But it was really hard to turn my arm with the extra weight to position my camera perfectly

    • I don’t take a single day of it for granted, I’m a stoked grom every time I enter the water. Aloha and mahalo for the kind words. Check back in a week we have a serious swell hitting the north east coast of USA
