Visiting the Uncomfortable Zone
K&M headed off to the sponge docks at Tarpon Springs when the light went bad. We went because well, I didn’t want to sit inside on a gorgeous day and wanted to challenge myself. Shooting these kinds of images while teaching is most definitely an uncomfortable place for me. My buds at NAPP had brought me here before so I wanted to take the D4 for a spin amongst the color.
I had a great time just goofin starting with some 5 image handheld HDR. The store fronts are just killer this time of day with Nik HDR Efex pro and then finishing with Silver Efex Pro. One trick I taught the folks is how to shoot glass door like this and not see yourself in the picture. Know the trick? No, guess you need to come on adventure with us. And not, it was done in camera and not in post.
Then it was the most important time of the day…ICE CREAM! While I was sitting there enjoying mine, I looked up and this is what I saw. This is a straight shot out of the camera. I love this! In fact, I think this sums up my whole time at Tarpon Springs and how I felt after going into the uncomfortable zone!
