Small Things

Sometimes small things you do, can make a great difference in your photography. For instance, while shooting on the beach one day,  I decided to intentionally silhouette parents and their children playing in the surf  to make the photographs more universal.  Normally when shooting into the sun you open up about a stop and a half for the back light. Here I did not. As a follow up afterwards, again looking for a different “feel,” or emotion in a couple of the photographs,  I chose to make one of the photographs monochromatic and all golden and the other in sepia which sets a mood as well to the photos. The gold toned photo possibly  representing the end of day and the other one in the sepia tone gave it a more nostalgic feel.  The possibilities are endless.
