I Shot The Sheriff

It´s hard to take good portraits/lifestyle pics of pro surfers. They are surfers and they just want to surf. This day the sky was so dramatic I convinced Marlon to take a few pics before he went home. I had a few seconds to compose, expose and focus (I use manual focus) before he got bored.

do bend your knees
do bend your knees.

tO get this perspective I had to get down. It´s a dirty job…

say cheese

This is the result, unedited. The backlight isn´t my 28mm Nikkor AI-s forte, but with a bit of post it´s a very useable image. Glad I didnt cut his head off in the reflection too.
