Arty Farty (Pink surf)

I went down to Wamberal Beach last Sunday morning to shoot the sunrise. On the way there could see that there wasn’t going to be any cloud to give the sky any interest. Being an early riser normally I wasn’t too worried I had wasted my time as I usually go for an early surf(weekends) anyway.

I still don’t like coming away with nothing, so thought what can I do to come up with a shot! It was one of the smokiest mornings due to some bush fires I had seen for a while. So as the sun was rising the smoke started turning some very nice pastel colors. I snapped off a few frames but wasn’t happy with them. The sun wasn’t up yet so I decided to use the lower light to set the shutter for 1 second and panned the camera on the tripod! tried it a number of times and then got this one! The waves in the foreground made this one look pretty good!

This is the first time I have tried this! What do you think? Should I try it some more?

I know it’s not my normal type of shot and maybe it’s a little too arty farty but hey you need to try new things!  ( Will probably cop it from some mates)

    I was reading about this technique recently, and your photo is easily as good as the ones used in the article!
    Also, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with taking ‘Arty Farty’ photos :0)November 6, 2013 – 10:42 amReplyCancel
