Thanks, everyone! I'm so sunburned right now. lol. I might make it a regular thing to take photos of surfers up and down the coast on my commute home. I had a really good time shooting the competition.
I emailed asking for a media pass to the Producers Showcase I mentioned earlier... I got a reply saying she will check how many passes are left. I'm afraid since I don't have much experience in event/concert photography I may not get a pass. Crossing my fingers that I do!
Btw, there have been some awesome pictures posted on here lately!
