A man riding a boogie board and being splashed by a wave


Surfers Paradise, Gold Coast
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

I took the water camera and my fisheye 0.42x filter into the surf for some boogie boarding fun. The surf was rough and I lost the filter when I got dumped off a wave (that was a risk I knowingly took), but I got the shot (and video) I wanted anyway.

This is a still from video, and was taken after I lost the fisheye filter.

The camera & lens:

Camera: Fuji FinePix XP60
Lens: Fuji FinePix XP60 fixed lens 5-25mm (28-140mm equiv) f/3.9-4.9
(Movie mode - still taken from a video)

Post processing:

Lightroom 5 -

  1. Capture still from video
  2. Otherwise straight out of camera
