As you might know, I never go back and reprocess photos. Why? Well, I feel that as creative people there are so many photos ahead of us that there really isn’t a reason to revisit the past. The future is bright and we should continue to explore. I know some folks don’t agree with me, and it takes discipline not to do it, but that is just the way I work. Everyone is different and that is totally cool. You might be asking yourself…didn’t you already post this image. The answer is yes, I did post this composition last year. However, this is an entirely different image. I shot a bunch of images on Cannon Beach when I visited it…you can’t help it. The place is amazing! Hopefully I’ll have a bunch of information for you about photographing Cannon Beach soon. I’m beginning work on my next free photo guide, ‘The Photographer’s Guide to Cannon Beach’. I will let you know when it’s complete!
Photographer’s Note – This is a single image shot with a Nikon D700 and 24-20mm lens. I brought it to life using Lightroom 4. To achieve the smooth dreamy quality in the clouds and water I used a 10stop Neutral Density (ND) filter which acts like really dark sunglasses for your camera. It allows you to turn a 1 second exposure into over a two-minute exposure. Pretty cool right?
