p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Wakeboard Tournament


I shot my first wakeboard tournament yesterday. From the little kids to the pros, it was a lot of fun, but made for a long day sitting in the back of the boat. Any suggestions/critiques would be great.

I was mostly shooting for faces and tricks and not so much for the wide angle artsy stuff. It was a a cloudy day with some rain so the lighting could have been a bit nicer.

#3 is my fav mainly do to the angle making me wonder how high he was. Others have better background and such, but it was #3 for me.

Tim...these are excellent shots. If you didn't say it was your first time shooting this....one would never know it. #3 is my fav and my only suggestion is to do more . You did a great job.

Very nice shots, Tim. My pick is #4, because the darker background really makes the wakeboarder stand out.

I like all of them. You caught some nice facial expressions along with the muscle tone of theses athletes at the peak of action. If I were still wake boarding and one of these shots were of me I'd buy one in a heartbeat. First time doing this..great work.

Thanks all for taking the time to leave a comment.

In the interest of full disclosure, I've shot lots of images from the back of a boat, just never a tournament and never kids/adults this good before. It's one thing shooting your own kid doing a wake to wake jump and quite another to shoot tricks I've never heard of before.

At times I probably could have used a wide angle lens. I was using the 70-200 2.8 IS II on the 1d4 and some of these guys (#3 above) nearly jumped out of the frame on some of their tricks. I was trying to keep some water in the images to give a sense of height. I'm not sure how high the guy in #3 was, but he was way up there. We were riding in a Mastercraft X-star boat that threw the biggest wake I've ever seen and some of the riders knew how to use it to its full potential.

WalnutPond - the guy in #2 and I (and the rest of the guys in the boat) had a good laugh at his facial expressions on this jump. I think he bought the image too!

I don't have a favourite, they are all awesome to look at. You did a great job of catching good moments and expressions.

Thanks all for the kind words. It was a long, but fun day. And as CW100 pointed out, I did have the best seat in the house, so to speak.
