And I thought studio photography was tricky. Pretty much everything has to be in perfect concert for these night shots to work out. This time I had the right equipment and personnel. But alas 20kt winds kicked up and destroyed the early evening surf. We postponed a few hours and though it was better, the break was still trashy.

The water was warm and the lighting setup made focusing easy. But there just weren't any good opportunities to snag good shots. The only other slight complication was not adequately communicating to the flasher which side the slave sensor was on - but that was moot.

It's pretty clear from the shots: plenty of light and no focus issues. But nothing more than ugly whitewater.

It was however strange to get back from a surf session at 1 am.

The last nightsurfing photo session was lots of fun and yielded some great, unique shots. The lessons learned were:
