These were the conditions we were faced with during the workshop. It wasn’t the sunset we were hoping for, but there was some opportunity for long exposures and black and whites. The real challenge, for me, was finding a unique composition on the beach. I feel like its silly to go and shoot the exact same shot that quite a few other people have done.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve copied styles and comps in the past, but I need something more now. I think this weekend I figured out a new approach that will allow me to create some more meaningful images…I hope. We’ll see how it works out, and then maybe I’ll share the approach.
The above was shot with my iPhone 5s, using the native camera app. I edited with Snapseed, using a vintage filter, followed by a black and white conversion.
