Skim Slam 2011

I had a chance to shoot Skim Slam 2011 at the Marriott Morningstar beach while I was on vacation recently. Loads of fun to watch and I imagine it was alot of fun for the skimboarders.  I am not normally a sports photographer but this was a chance to enjoy the beach and do photography at the same time!

This is obviously alot harder than it looks but at least you have the sun and the water to make it even more fun.  It was great to see all the kids competing and all the local support that the guys from Skimcaribbean have in the local community.

I hope to have more opportunities to shoot this kind of event.  I need to expand my comfort zone in photography beyond the landscape, travel and architecture that I normally do.

The equipment that I used for this shoot was my Nikon D700, my Nikkor 24-70 lens and my Singh-Ray LB Color Combo polarizer.  This setup has become my workhorse combo for 90% of what I like to shoot.
