Leah Sausen surfing Hanalei. Look for more to follow on her work with the Surfrider Foundation.
On an assignment yesterday using a GoPro and this happens, spontaneous combustion.
Or the illusion of it.
A drop of water on the lens backlit turns into a board on fire.
Sometimes the hard thing is to accept the mistakes and then remember them when you want to reproduce it.
Make the mistakes and cultivate the ones that sit well with you.
With the camera, there is a story I tell myself.
With each affirmation, with each exposure, I remind myself that the beauty of truth lies within the connection.
This is where the story begins and ends, in the interaction with a place, with a person.
It becomes my truth.
The photographs, the scribbled notes, are the fading reminders of that connection.
