See Shell – Shell – Photo
Another morning on the beach…
It’s rather easy to get “sucked into” the big great expanse of the ocean.
But then there are the little details that are all over the place. Rocks. Shells. Sticks. etc.
Sometimes its the little things that make interesting images. Not that you shouldn’t shoot the bigger, more obvious things, but definitely don’t forget the little stuff.
In Terms of Processing – Technically
Fairly simple and straight forward here.
First off, I set my camera up, locked it on a tripod and got the framing how I wanted it. I focused carefully on the shell and then changed my aperture so that I could get a fairly slow shutter speed – 1/13 of a second in this case. The slower shutter speed allowed for the water to do a bit of “streaking” instead of being crisply sharp. I did have to play around with different shutter speeds and aperture settings till the water looked about like I wanted it to.
Then I waited till a wave just about got to the shell and hit my shutter release. Then I did it again. And again. And again. Till I finally got one or two images that were close to how I had envisioned it.
Processing was completely done in Lightroom. I adjusted the exposure settings some (exposure, highlights, shadows, blacks, and whites) and added a split tone… Then a quick crop and here we are!
