Sorry for the small size, that’s all we got. Third world internet speeds aren’t quite up to par yet 😉

Finished blank shot

Nice photo of a freshly finished blank –

Neilson surfboards finished blank - custom surfboard shaping

For you photo geeks out there, check out the depth of field on this shot. Shot with an Olmpus E-620 with a lens adapter for an old manual focus 50mm lens. Gives some really good results, but really tight depth-of-field so getting the right focus requires quite a bit of trial and error or just shooting a lot of pictures. This one was shot at f2.8 / 1/160s at ISO400. You can see the grain of the blank about a third of the way up from the tail. The tail and nose are out of focus. Thanks again for the pics Tim.
