Photo Friday: Ghosting

November 10, 2017

Ghosting is a great special effect using much slower shutter speeds to blur the action of someone walking.  This one was taken at 1/20 second.

First Look Photo: Surf’s Up

September 28, 2016

This week I went to Higgins Beach, the only true surfing beach in this area.  There wasn’t much activity, but there were a couple of surfers.  This guy was walking with his surf board and the way his hair caught the sea breeze caught my attention.

Photo Friday: Shadow Play

March 6, 2015

Today’s picture came courtesy of a sunset.  One of the biggest photo clichés is, of course, the sunset.  Everyone with a camera has hundreds of pictures, at least, of sunsets.  To be fair, no two sunsets are exactly the same (foregrounds, cloud formations)  all different.

In the case of today’s photo, I decided to show the beautiful effect the sunset was having on my surroundings, rather than the sun.  I still get the warm glow, and with the angle of the sun through my window, it created a perfect silhouette of the flowers on my entertainment center.

Sometimes the sun is the only light source you will ever need.

Shadowed dusk

 

The sun slowly sets

Leaving me in shadowed dusk,

It’s time to go home.
