Cormorant Cove

November 05, 2013

Our last morning on Block Island was spent at Cormorant Cove for a sunrise shoot where there were ample shooting opportunities for views towards and away from the rising sun.  I chose a location along a dock to capture the morning light, and setting my camera to Daylight White Balance, everything was warmed up rather nicely!  We walked the mile or so stretch of dirt road up the hill to a nearby property where one of our workshop members was friends with the property owner.  We were granted access to walk through the rolling fields and spend more time in the early sunlight.  I played around with my 50mm lens and a shallow depth of field to capture some of the wildflowers and flora.

The afternoon was spent with another hike around Dorry's Cove on the west side of the island, sunset at the Spring House across from our Inn, and a walk on the farm!  Those photos to come.

I've been wanting to shoot more portraits lately, but in combination with the surf community that I've been so involved with the past year.  My good friend, Kevin Tanner, behind Soudnings Surf Co creates some gorgeous handcrafted boards.  He does all his own shaping, resin work, and glassing, and I wanted to photograph some beautiful boards to highlight his craftsmanship as well as portraits of my friends who ride them.  I decided to do board portraits.

A lot of us enjoy the warm weather, but a select few of us still enjoy (or perhaps tolerate) the cold weather.  And nothing quite says winter like a fresh snowfall!  On the rare occasion Rhode Island experiences more than one inch of snow while there's swell in the water, you can find a select few of dedicated riders on the shore eager to have a snow session.

Some days I just don't feel like swimming.  Some days I don't feel like shooting with a 7lb telephoto setup on the beach.  Those days are perfectly suited for drone shots, should the wind be accommodating enough.  

I've only had a couple drone flights this winter, one during a sunny but cold morning at the beach, and a second during a slightly windier day at Point Judith lighthouse. It's always a refreshing perspective!
