Beach Workshop Ends.....High Waves Big winds....
High winds, big waves, and cool temps greeted us Saturday morning when we headed out before dawn to get on the beach. The waves were so high that the horizon line was not flat....you could see the height of the waves out to sea...pretty wild. After getting everyone set with their bulb mode and making sure they were checking histograms and horizon lines I made a few shots. Choosing shutter speed changes dramatically as light comes on and at certain moments there is one awesome wave that works with your settings...it is very hard to select a perfect setting because every wave is different and moving at different speeds...these waves were busting to the shore....but as the sun rose the surf shoreline picked up some wonderful color from the sky and the waves broke perfectly. I cropped a few of these shots to emphasize the waves and water. I try to teach my participants to keep shooting....for just this reason...It was a super weekend with some really great folks. I will be doing another beach workshop in April 2012, if you want to sign up. Shoot me an e-mail and I will add you to my mailing list or keep an eye on the sidebar of the blog for updates to my workshop offerings.
