PJ Sunrise

November 06, 2012

Also on my list of places to visit has been Point Judith Light for a morning long exposure shoot.  After coming across, greatly admiring, and then meeting seascape photographer Ed King of 02809 Photography, I have been deeply inspired to further practice and refine my own seascape shooting.  I headed to PJ the morning after our first frost.  I headed down the beach to find my best vantage point.  Although I would have preferred low tide, it was unfortunately peak high tide when it was time for the sun to break the horizon.  Here's my happy result though!  I'm waiting on my Graduated ND filter in the mail so this was a composite to combine sky and foreground exposures.  I was using my 16-35mm at the lowest ISO possible!  By the time the sun was breaking the horizon I was well into fractions of a second instead of the preferred 1 second or longer.  I'll be sure to revisit for low tide and with a new filter and see how different of a shot I can make!

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!
