I took my daily sunset walk out to the beach this evening and was pleasantly surprised. We have a high tide and some swell this evening making for our very own reflecting pool. I brought out my new 30mm f.14 to get some shots. The 1.4 aperture wide open makes for some rad bokeh. I used it this past weekend at the wedding I photographed in Los Angeles and it didn’t come off my camera the entire day. I’ll be posting those pictures from the Rose Garden at Exposition Park sometime in the next week. So this evening, I was looking to shoot something different than your ordinary sunset shot. Instead of looking up, sometimes you have to look down and then you will see the world around you in a whole new way. Or how about seeing the world upside down? Here my roommate Brett stands in for a nice minimalistic sunset silhouette.
Images post processed in Adobe Lightroom. I cooled down the blues to a nice teal and also added a little blue tone to the shadows as well as added a bit of red to the highlights.
Enjoy the pics!
