Deactivate the flash and tell her to take the pic as soon as you hit the wake, that will give the camera time to think and take the pic when you're in the air (if you're using a digital) <BR> <BR>Also, tell her to take tons of pics, so you'll have lots to choose from. With practice she'll start to get the timing just right. Oh, and if your camera works like mine, where you push the button midway to focus, and the finish pressing for it to take the pic, have her focus (press midway) first, before you start the trick and hold it and then just finish pressing when you do it. Hope that makes sense. <BR> <BR>And last.... show us the pics here!

Yes, Cris is right timing is critical. Also a lot of digital cameras have a sports setting. This helps take decent pictures of fast action. Another thing to consider is time of day and lighting. The best wakeboading pictures are taken early morning just after sunrise and late afternoon just prior to sunset. Riding into the sun the wakeboarder (you) will be evenly lit, void of the harsh shadows usually seen at high noon. Hope this helps. Now lets see those photos.
