More Practice

Second Beach – La Push, WA

This image is another perspective from my long exposure practice exercise.  This time the focus was to highlight the sky and the smooth tide.  I used dodging and burning in the sky, dodging on the sea stack and water.  I am looking forward to an upcoming workshop on the Oregon Coast with John Barclay and Cole Thompson.  It should be enlightening.

Practice & Experiment

Second Beach, La Push, WA

I took a special trip to the Washington Coast to experiment and practice long exposure photography. My first day of practice resulted in a disappointing set of images with many, many, pure white and pure black frames.  I am thankful tor digital photography!  I knew the steps I needed to take.  However, my excitement took over and I made multiple mistakes.  Toward the end I started to engrain the process into my sequence of shooting.  The next morning, I slowed down and did much better.  This image is from that morning.  I have a lot more of experimenting and practicing to do.
