On Sunday morning we went out at 5:30am to shoot on Driftwood Beach till the sun came up, then we moved to the marshes to shoot the front and sidelight. I was walking up the bike trail following a deer in the marsh when we saw this egret in the tree further down. I pushed the ISO up to 800 and hurried down the trail to get some shots. Must have taken about 50 – 70 shots with different framing and waiting for the egret to get in a better position to make the design of the image stronger. The front light was perfect and a little white cloud in the background doesn’t hurt either. I see it as a very oriental style image. All in all, a very good day of photography.
Here are a few of the IR shots I took around the historic district at Jekyll Island. I am pretty sure I am hooked on IR and will be doing more in the future.
For some reason I didn’t take many images of the amazing trees at Driftwood Beach. I usually got engrossed in beach texture and color. I’m not complaining, just explaining…
This is one of my favorite images of the week.
Here’s an HDR image taken in the historic district at sunset. I have a bunch of infrared shots I took in the historic district one evening that I will process as I get some time.
We were out at 5:30am just about every day to shoot. This was taken on Driftwood Beach, I know no trees, combination of two exposures, layered in Photoshop and blended. The colors were amazing, especially the reflected blues.
This was taken on the last day, Sunday morning. We shot on the beach for sunrise, then moved to the marsh area nearby to get the sidelight. Walking down the bike trail I had to change lenses quickly to get this silhouette before the light was gone.
This was taken on a workshop with Craig Tanner and Marti Jeffers from The Mindful Eye. The best workshop experience I have had. I recommend them to anyone, at any level of experience. Went to the beach at 5:30am to get some twilight shots. This is a 30 second exposure before sunrise and before the bugs come out.
Taking a different look at Spring…shot these daffodils in infrared for a “white on white” embossed look. I know it’s not the colorful look at Spring that everyone is use to, just a different take to show the texture and pattern of the flowers.
