I was visiting my parents in Georiga and we all went to a few parks to get out of the house to walk off the turkey.
This is the 2nd set from Thursday, I was there for a few hours shooting with my friends from Globo Surf, I have been working on my technique for shooting land based surfing. I used the Canon 5D mk II and the 2.8f L 400mm lens with a 2X Teleconverter. The 5D mk II doesn’t have a fast frame rate, but with a full size sensor and 24 meg a pixel sensor I can crop half the image away and still have a plenty of image quality for printing images. I use Apple photography program Aperture. The first thing I do is down load all the images to my computer. Then I start to grade the images, Apertures auto stacking makes this a very fast.
The surf was good this afternoon. I head to 2nd Light and drug out the big lens and did some shooting. I was using a 5d mkII and a 2.8f L 400mm to allow me to get a bit closer I used a tele converter to push the focal length out to 800mm. This allowed me to get even closer to the action, most rides where at the first break.
(NOTE: If you don’t see your self, drop me a note jonsl at sluder dot net and tell me the day and what you where riding)
The local rock climbing gym, On the Edge Climbing Gym, had a ABS climbing competition rewarded with one at home ab machine. The event was all bouldering or climbing short but complex routes that where less than 10 – 15ft. The climbers do not use ropes, all the gear that is needed is shoes and chalk.

I just finished a piece for the Melbourne Museum of Art Fund raiser. It was an adventure in mishaps, failed experiments and catastrophic failures. I just finished the final prints and dropped the piece off at the Museum.
It is an interesting piece, high speed capture of light bulbs being smashed by a hammer and capturing the aftermath of shattered bulbs. I also time lapse video I need to edit and get out, but first I need to sweep the floors and remove all the shattered glass…
I have been shooting a great deal for Space Coast Living, and for my self.
I have a bunch of images to get out, up against a few dead lines…
I will have a new piece @ the Melbourne Museum of Art this saturday. I broke alot of stuff to get that shot…
