Surfer riding a cool shark painted surfboard.
Earlier today while taking a walk on the Huntington Beach Pier, I noticed a surfer with a very unique surfboard. It appears to be painted as a shark, the orange/red board stood out from the rest of the pack. Add the fact that the man surfing was also a good surfer, made the opportunity for a clear shot very possible.
The surf was about 3 to 5 ft with the occasional 6 ft waves so it was a good day to be out surfing or, like me, taking pictures. I recently got back from a trip to Maui, which was great, but I still love capturing photos from the Southern California area, especially Huntington Beach.
Some of you have emailed me recently asking what camera equipment I use to take the pictures you see on this site. As promised, I list them below. I mainly use two camera’s, a DSLR and a Point and Shoot compact. I don’t carry both of them with me all the time, but at least one is always nearby.
But like any photographer will tell you, it’s not the equipment that takes pictures, it’s the person behind the camera. After all, if you bake a great tasting pie, the cook takes the credit not the oven right? So go out with whatever camera you have or can afford to purchase and take lots of pictures!
