    An incredible photographer in Hawai whose pictures sell for upwards of $4,000 a time.

    Waive Bay shore-break surfing pioneer, husband, and father of two, Clark Little has gained nationwide recognition for his photography on National Television.

    It all started in 2007 when Clark 's wife wanted a nice piece of art to decorate a wall.

    Voluntarily, Clark grabbed a camera, jumped in the water, and starting snapping away capturing the beauty and power of monstrous Hawaiian waves from the inside out.

    I would go with photoshop too, because of the very fast shutter speed that's been used and depth of field achieved.

    Photoshop or not, these are just the most fantastic pictures..

    Image manipulation is as old as photography itself, nothing new.. it can improve or manipulate an image but it can't swim in the surf and capture pictures like these.. it is also an art form in it's own right..

    They are exciting photos, as Jim said they had to be taken first and be a good shot before it could be manipulated, and the pounding of those waves on you it cant be easy to take shots like that, enjoyed watching his videos too :thumb::thumb:

    My cousin can vouch about the power of those waves as he was slammed/hammered into the sand from a great big wave also believe it was in Hawaii , he spent nearly a year in one of those head frames screwed into into his head ..ouch

    Would love to visit a exhibition of his work :thumb:

    they are very artistic and interesting, it does not matter whether he used a box brownie or all the technology in the world the end results are people want his work and pay lots for it.I understand this a lot more than a dirty unmade bed or a dead cow in liquid.

    Post processing is just the norm these days......but looks like real shots to me
    and I think free from ghastly HDR which when over used.. (and it mainly is ) makes me want to vomit.

    impressive stuff

    Very impressive. Very difficult to get the DoF as mentioned. However, as they will probably a camera mounted on something static, it could be a merge of 2 photos (one before the wave with focus on the horizon and one with focus on the near foreground), but if they are, they are very well done.

    EDIT: After checking the website,it seems they may actually be handheld. The guy is a genius, and retracting the DoF, as the horizon is not in focus.....

    press that shutter

    Hey yeah not bad.. not bad at all…though…

    Easy peazey lemon squeezy.. all you have to do is fasten camera to surf board, (don`t use blue tack it comes off in the wet).


    A good camera is essential, personally I use my trusty Olympus Trip, with extending shutter release and pre chosen focus points.


    A couple of times I did try an underwater camera but as you`re not actually under the water the expense is unnecessary
    Head off out into that surf and ride those bad boys in, Ye Haa.:Cool:

    Top Tip.. Always wipe lens just before taking photos to eliminate water marks and splashes on the lens.
    Oh I`m also thinking of coating lens with Rainex next time, might save on wipes.

    [FONT=&quot]This will also keep any flare down.:thumb:[/FONT]
