Siargao, Philippines.
I actually found more intersting to capture surfers as they are wainting for the next wave. Also, to properly capture a surfer actually surfing you need to be too close to them and it probably annoys them a lot (righfully). I also think that pictures taken in the water with proper gear are way more good looking than what you could get with a drone.

What I found most difficult was to properly expose the pictures. When the waves crush the foam is often over exposed as you are not prepared for the overwhelming brightness. Same problem with surfers and boards. It was hard to keep the details in the rocks below the water and on the surfer as well.
Always be a bit underexposed and then bring up the dark in post production.

Don't go too close to the surfers, locals will not be happy!
