Recent Panning Abstracts

June 17, 2014

As a continuation of my attempts at a new kind of water panning, I made visits to the Narragansett Beach and Quonnie's East Beach recently to try and practice the art of incorporating motion into still seascapes.  Both evening presented with pale pastels at dusk, giving my frame some pinks and purples to hold on to.  I think I've got the hang of it, and I started to even incorporate more beach into the frame.  Now I just have to find more variety and try this technique during stormy gray days, brilliant sunny days, with super long "strokes" with the camera, shorter exposures with people within the frame...  The possibilities are endless!  But for now, as my collection of water panning shots grows, I will start to compile them in a new Water Panning category within my photography catalog.  Enjoy!

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!
