Any time I’m in a new location my anxiety / over processing kicks in. There are some many move variables when getting in the water than shooting from sand that I very much get in my own head. This is the first time I shot here and I didn’t go more than waist-deep. I just watched it, a lot. Water movement, Wave position, Speed of surfers, Light angles, depth, sand location… Maybe I overthink it.
One thing I have learnt is to not let what other people think matter with your creative process, especially if part of that process is large amounts of water dumping on your head. Ill take my time and enjoy the journey.
