Owls Head, MMW Day 2 – PM, I Love ME!

This afternoon we headed out to Owls Head. This sleepy little cove has a Head Lamp. A miniature “lighthouse,” Owls Head is a kinda cool place to shoot. Some of the gang headed down to the beach to shoot up on the head lamp. Bob produced a really nice image, but I took a different approach, I went up and kissed the darn thing.

When we first arrived at the head lamp, the light was a bit flat, had no drama for the head lamp but did make for nice light for macros. I knew there was a cool macro in the neat shrubs nearby but I don’t think I had found the shot. I kinda like this, but I think it could be better. How much better? That I’m not sure and I’m not really sure what bugs me about the photo. Something to think about.

What I was really after was a “new” look to the head lamp or lighthouse for my files. I seem to be collecting lighthouse photos from both coasts so pushing myself to go “new.” I tried a couple of things when I noticed the clouds start to open up and create a circular halo around the head lamp. I knew the 16Fish was the way to go and for the next 20min. Myself and four participants just looked up and circled the lighthouse as the clouds worked their magic. Here are my three favorites from the evening.

I would have loved to have the window perfectly centered but that wasn’t possible. And I would have captured the shot of the night but the ‘kid” Jeremy kicked my butt with a really sweet shot taken vertically with a 14mm. I love to be challenged so I really liked having Jeremy there pushing the old fart. Good stuff!
