Photo Tip Of The Week Matt Kurvin Explains Shooting Different Vantage Points During a Single Session
It’s easy to find a good spot when photographing a surf session and plant yourself there for the entire time. Many times what you get are a lot of great photos, but all of them tend to be very similar in composition.
Yes, you can shoot long lenses and short (still recommended), shoot high and low, but the vantage point remains the same. I like to move around a bit and see what I can get. or me it keeps the day exciting, because I never know what I might find.
Let’s take a recent day at Pipeline for example.
1. I started down the beach at Rocky Point, first setting up a nice line-up shot (above)
The SWELL Spring 2012 catalog features tons of coastal eye-candy from our new favorite lensman Matt Kurvin. He recently won the People’s Choice Award for Larry “Flame” Moore’s Follow the Light Foundation, sponsored by SWELL.
Since winning the award, Kurvin has published surf photography in almost every major surf periodical including Surfline.com, Surfing Magazine, Surfers Journal and ESPN.
Kurvin’s career path started by moving to almost every major surf center in the USA. Originally from Sarasota, Fl he moved to California in 2001, lived in Encinitas for a few years and moved to Santa Cruz in 2003. That is where he and his wife now reside.
He is currently on the North Shore of Oahu for 2 months . The opportunity for getting great photographs there has paid off during the last couple major swells, and we expect to see much of his worked circulating magazines in the coming months. Next on his global journey is France in April, and mainland Mex in August. His main goal in life is to travel as much as possible.
