Feels like a long time since I last posted! And really I guess it has been, but for good reason – my third child and first son was born this past week. As you can imagine I’ve been quite busy (in a great way) with the new person in the family, but now I’m back and ready to share not only a new photo but also a new video tutorial.
This photo comes from Japan’s Pacific Coast in Chiba Prefecture. I traveled there a couple of weeks ago with my friend and fellow photographer Anthony Wood. I’ve been wanting to try out some seascapes and Choshi is a great place for this. Unfortunately, due to some navigation mishaps, I missed the sunrise, and then it clouded over before sunset. But as I’ve often said, you have to make due with what you have, and I really liked the feeling of this scene. I’m not sure what kind of moss or algae this is growing on the rocks, but the beautiful red tones drew me to the scene. There’s a lot of different techniques that went into editing this, but perhaps one of the most important is described in the photography quick tip video that I have below. Be sure to check it out!
