Can I know what are things we need to look when we are about to capture such diving shots?

1. Good light because you need a fast shutter speed to capture the action (1/2000 if possible)
2. Long zoom lens to get as close as possible without major cropping
3. High frame rate to grab several shots just before and after the anticipated event (wipeout, catching air, etc.)
4. Shoot in RAW if possible.

Great captures!

Definitely a different look at the sport.

Hey, what is your approach to focusing?

I'm looking at your first shot, and the face is sharp.

But . . . there is water splashing about in front.

Take care,
