Surfing Photogrpahy
Oct 3, 2008

Hey there, bought an E-510 with the twin lens kit a while ago wanting to get into photography as a hobby. Been playing around a bit and thought I'd start posting some stuff for comment and advice.

Spent an hour at the beach this morning taking some surfing shots. Clear blue skies and sun over the land made for decent conditions I think.

All shots are with the 40-150 kit lens. Based on comments in another thread about sports photography, I was generally shooting in Aperture priority mode and leaving the camera to do its thing with shutter speed. First shots were very over exposed so I played with the exposure compensation until I got some decent results (I think). Haven't applied any PP, just cropped a bit (150mm is probably a bit short).

Would love any advice or suggestions!
