Moonstone Beach Holgas

Moonstone Beach Holgas

May 07, 2012

I haven't been out shooting much lately, but the little bit of shooting I have been managing has been with my Holga and some black and white film.  I've already shared some images from Matunuck, but I've been visiting the various beaches along the southern shore of Rhode Island.  We started at Matunuck, and next is Moonstone (as you travel down Route 1 South).  I've visited Green Hill and the Breachway as well, and plan on revisiting these other locations with my camera.  I also figured out my camera issue!  Turns out the switch on the bottom of my Holga to change between normal and bulb exposures is rather sensitive, and I had accidentally switched to bulb exposures on my last two rolls.  Luckily, the problem has been resolved!  And this roll of exposures came out just fine.  I will be sure to double check that setting before every exposure from here on out.  Here's a couple of shots from Moonstone beach, with more from Matunuck and other southern RI beaches to come!

Also, for any local readers and followers, there will be an opening at Junction Trattoria & Bistro of North Kingstown tomorrow night from 7-9pm featuring coastal photography from myself and long time friend Cindy Wilson.  Free appetizers and drinks during the opening!  Be sure to check it out!  Junction Trattoria is part of the small plaza in Wickford Junction across from Staples and the new train station, the last plaza on the roundabout.  You can find out more event details at the facebook event page here:  https://www.facebook.com/events/430444653650743/

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!

If you talk to anyway wave hunting lately, most everyone is pretty annoyed with this season's swell.  We usually expect big nor'easter storms to roll thru in the winter months, generating big waves and heavy offshore winds.  Last season we were totally spoiled with head to overhead 6-8'+ days regularly occurring once a week.  This season has been a little different, but perhaps that's a good thing to get me more accustomed to swimming in cold conditions.
