Forest surfing

January 14 2014
For my personal portrait project, I often ask friends if they can spare me half an hour or so, to pose for a picture. Most of the times it's me who does all the location hunting and coming up with the creative stuff. Not this time though... I've known this guy for more than 20 years and for a few years now, he's been into the surfboard repair business, mostly operating out of the shed in his back yard. His latest creation is a pitch black pintail surfboard and he wanted it to be in the picture. Fine by me! The forest is also very close to his house, so after making 1 and 1 into 2, we headed out. The light was wonderful, the motivation to make a fabulous shot was high. The results are setting the bar pretty high for my next models...
