Today I spent the day photographing with Don Wagner from Shadyside, MD, the skipper of Der Baron, who won first place in his class in the Governor's Cup sail boat race last summer. He is also a member of the Annapolis Digital Photography Club and I had promised him a day in the field, since he and his crew were so wonderful to allow me to participate in the race last year as a member on his boat.
We had a really fun day shooting today. The light was a bit of a challenge...hmmm what do you do with bright mid day clear blue sky light? Shoot reflections...? We started in the Annapolis Harbor as a warm up and then headed to Kent Island where the work boats tie up...we worked the boats in dock making images of lines and reflections. After we had finished we had a great lunch at the Narrows Restaurant. I enjoyed a cup of their out of this world cream of crab soup and a fried oyster sandwich. We headed on toward Tilghman Island in hopes of catching some more boats and a sunset. We made a few images there and then headed toward the tip of the island, stopping one more time in a marina area, where the light was amazing but only for a few minutes, we worked fast and made some images. Sunset was disappointing and we headed back. It was a long but great day. I got a few keepers from the day.
