This is a recent image from a personal project I created with the goal of forcing myself to get out and shoot during the FL summer. I decided to shoot the same stretch of my local beach with different approaches each time. Wide and low or mid focal length isolations, into the sun or down the shore with the sun out of frame, high tides or low tides, before the sun breaks the horizon or after, etc. It has produced much more varied work than I expected and has been great to keep the creative juices flowing during a time when I normally am not motivated to shoot much. I am hoping that pays dividends with the fall/winter excursions I have planned when the conditions are much more to my liking. I hate hot and 100% humidity at 5am!!!.
I plan on posting a few more of these and would love to hear everyone’s feedback! (I know this isn’t the critique forum as I consider this image to be at a stage I am content with, but have no issue with anyone providing critiques if they see fit)
Canon 5DSR, 16mm, 1/2sec @f/14, ISO 100 (for primary exposure)
