Sitting on the back deck enjoying a Radenberger Pilsner I noted the sun glowing thought the bottle neck. Ah-Ha!! A photograph!! Placing the iPhone lens at the opening and playing
with position I came up with this. Different and fun. Enjoy, Jeff
I have taken hundreds of beach pics over the years. This time I wanted to create an image that reflected the feeling of the beach. I found this conch and placed it at surf edge early in the morning The sun was behind illuminating the scene. The Fuji X10 was set up on a tripod, shutter speed 1/4 sec to blur the waves. Focus was on the shell. It took about 20 shots to get this one but well worth it. Enjoy , Jeff
One of the greatest mistakes that landscape photographers can make is trying to capture the entire scene and divide the scene between sky and foreground trying to get equal emphasis on each. What really is to decide what part of the scene is most important and most interesting. In this case the stormclouds brewing above the Caribbean Sea created greater interest than the beautiful green see below. Furthermore conversion to black and white brought this out in a dramatic fashion. Lesson here is don't try to divide the scene between the land, the sea or the sky. Pick what is most dominant and photograph that. Enjoy,Jeff
