“Work the Scene”

2014-4254

Good morning,

I wanted to share an image that I created in Cape May a few weeks ago. Kelly had us up early but with light like this who can sleep in 🙂 Having visited Cape May many times for previous workshops I knew exactly where I wanted to photograph sunrise.

As I photographed the jetty with my Nikon D800 and my Tamron SP24-70mm f/2.8 lens and of course lets not forget my trusty Gitzo tripod, I worked the scene both towards the sun and away from the sunrise creating different moods and different takes on the same subject. I loved shooting towards the sun creating a nice star burst but then again I liked how the light played on the clouds and highlighted the jetty facing the opposite direction. I always stress when on location not only do you want a bracket your exposures but bracket or vary your compositions as well. Once you get home and start to edit your images having more than one composition to choose from is paramount.

Best of Light,

Ed
