First trip out with 40-150 lens - surf shots
5 months ago

Nice waves in Cornwall today so I thought I'd try out my new 40-150 lens for the first time. Not great light, and had to shoot in between lots of rain showers. (Not sure how weatherproof this lens is.)

This is another first for me as a newbie to the whole game, so I'd be more than grateful to anyone who has some good tips on shooting surfers, or any feedback on these shots. I used shutter speeds of 1/320 or 1/400, low burst mode at 4fps and C-AF tracking in order to try to keep the surfers in focus. I don't think I managed to do this very successfully though! If there are better settings than these, or better things I can do to catch surfers in action, do let me know!

Still, reasonably happy with these shots, for my first time!
