Acadia National Park: Working with Shutter Speed
June 10, 2015 • 2 Comments
Today at Acadia National Park/Schoodic Institute
As I explore the coast of Schoodic Peninsula, I enjoyed the changing light, weather and wind. The surf at Schoodic Point has been really strong and the waves are beautiful. Even when fog and rain obscure the coast, I can still hear the pounding of the surf. In fact, I can hear it from my apartment and as I walk outside at Schoodic Institute.
Today was a "boring blue sky" kind of day. I went for a scouting mission to the Sundew Trail and Schoodic Point. I'm usually adverse to photographing with mid-afternoon light but the surf proved to be a great subject in the sun. As I work this week with shutter speed and 3-5 frames per second shooting, I see that f14 works well for what I'm looking for in depth of field, and I like how 1/500 of a second captures the frozen wave forms. Using my Nikon 55-300 lens I played with compositions, and although I usually avoid centering the subject, this wave is smack in the middle. I think the white foam leading to the left helps move the eye through the frame. And I really love the blue/green water. What do you think?
