Last Light

I’ve been on a photo editing kick over the past few days, going through my backlog because I haven’t had much time to shoot new stuff recently. I don’t know how it is for all of you but I find that I’m usually able to get through editing three-or-so images before my creative juices start to run low. The concept of batch editing photos really doesn’t fit into my workflow, as I’m sure many of you can relate to, and so I try to be extra aware of when I feel like creativity-fatigue begins to set in. That’s usually when I hide Lightroom and go downstairs because tomorrow, after all, is another day!

I took this image at the Old Davenport Pier, California back in min-January. Getting to the beach in this area really requires timing things properly as far as the tide goes. When you can time the sunset alongside the tide going out, all it takes is climbing down and walking over. Just make sure you get back before the tide starts coming back in!

For this image, I paired up my Sony A7 with my Canon 24-70/2.8 II (this was before I picked up the Sony FE 24-70). I had my Formatt-Hitech 3-stop ND filter on, giving me a nice 2-second exposure time, allowing to capture the motion of the water without blowing out the sun.
