Week 4 #3 Before/After


I spent the weekend at a photography workshop in Jupiter Beach, FL. with 12 other photographers. Our locations to shoot were at Coral Cove Park and Blowing Rock Preserve. The Anastasia limestone outcropping, of over a mile, is the largest of its type in the state running along a barrier island near Jupiter Beach. One of our objectives was to learn how to shoot in the Aperture Priority setting, adjusting the ISO and F Stop, slowing down the shutter to freeze the incoming or outgoing waves on the rocks, to produce a creamy texture. We met 2 mornings at sunrise and 2 evenings at sunset. My images below were taken the first evening. Both images are in raw form with no editing.

The settings for the first or before image are:
ISO 250 Focal distance 17mm Aperture f/13 Shutter speed 1/30 second


The settings for the second or after image are:
ISO 100 Focal distance 17mm Aperture f/25 1/3 second


I have many hours ahead of me to work through the processing of my photos and the weekend was very tiring, getting up at 5 in the morning and staying up late for the sunset shots, but I am so happy I was able to participate. I learned a lot, made new friends and enjoyed seeing another beautiful place in Florida.

I have always enjoyed photography, but with encouragemet from family and friends over the past several years I began to realize I really love it! Belonging to this blog and a local digital photo group has challenged me to look at the beauty of the world and to enjoy capturing it with my camera.

  11. Sounds like an interesting workshop. Thanks for sharing the images and the settings. The effect of the slower shutter speed on the sea is beautiful.

  12. This is a nice comparison of the “view” you can get by changing camera settings – and by having patience!
