16th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
The surfer downunder
Surfer riding under the ocean's surface. While shooting for an artistic project, I wanted to include some surfing shots. Unfortunately it was the wrong period for waves, but I really needed the surfing shot to complete my project. So I came up with a new idea: photograph the surfer from underwater upsidedown, while acting to ride his board! It has been a real challenge, and it took more than 2 hours of tryies and houndreds of shots before I've got the right one.
