Surboard Shaper Manuel Caro
The North American addition of Drift Surfing ran an editorial piece I shot on surfboard shaper Manuel Caro. Manuel’s work space is located at Moonlight Glassing which is just outside Encinitas, CA. Andrew Smith did the interview for Drift and the very well rounded Ed Fladung busted out his art direction skills and classy shots of Manuel’s shaping bay. Below are some of my portrait shots and outakes from the shoot.
The first image is a before and after showing my post production work. You can see the difference between a processed RAW file using Adobe Lightroom and compare it to the final retouched version using Adobe PhotoShop. These portraits are also part of a much larger portrait series I am working on. I just need an extra 16 hours to finish the PhotoShop work. Ugh.
