Dawn Patrol

This is HB local surfer/shaper Matt Bettis checking out the waves early yesterday morning. A back lit, front lit, “overpower the sun with a tiny flash” kind of set up. I lit Matt’s face with an off camera SB800 at half power and just out of the frame. Mother nature kindly provided the sun for a backlight. It amazes me how much light these little strobes can actually put out. Shot with a Nikon D700 and my trusty 24-70mm, 1/100 sec at f22. I used a pair of Pocket Wizards to trigger the flash.
