What’s your standard technique for going out on a shoot?
The actual process of pressing the button to capture the image is usually three-quarters of the way down the list. Before anything happens. I try and do as much homework as I can about the area. I’ll study a range of weather maps, keep an eye on the forecasted tides, and be watching high- and low-pressure systems to help understand the swell—all of these must be considered first.
Sometimes it’s as easy as rolling out of bed and going for a swim though.
