Today's Photography Friday is not just about pictures, but a little video on what it takes to get pictures - specifically surf pictures. A good friend was doing a little surfing in Tahiti and had a bit of an unfortunate run in with the board (but apparently nothing a fewTahitian nurses and coconut cocktails couldn't fix), and as he was sending over his surfing videos, I couldn't help but think how much goes into getting the shot when someone is atop a moving board...in the ocean...with waves...
The video below, which I first spotted on the Aether Journal, talks about what goes into professional surf photography, which is no small feat. So pour yourself a libation - even if its from the office coffee machine and picture yourself in Tahiti...or anywhere else on the beach, and appreciate some of these aquatic accomplishments.
And if you like how photography meets the water, check out the post on Mark Tipple's photographs from a while back.
