As I mentioned in my previous post, I experimented a lot with my photography Labor Day weekend and since I really enjoyed some of the shots, I thought I would share them with a little info about each shot.
First off, I got some equipment that now allows me to geotag my photos as I take them. This means that you can see a map of where I took the photos. I’ll post a follow-up article in the future to tell you exactly what I’m using in my setup for this.

This is a shot similar to the shot from the East Hamptons. I use the shutter speed to expose the background sunset and then I used my aperture and a flash with a CTO gel on it to expose Steph in the foreground. I was thinking that the CTO gel would mesh well with the colors of the setting sun but I think I should have tried a 1/4 or 1/2 CTO instead of a full CTO. I was also a tad bit late shooting this and the sun had just dipped below the horizon, a few moments earlier and I could have gotten more of the sun.
While we were at the pier, I also shot this panorama of the pier. I really like how it turned out and it reminds me of the work from Christos J. Palios. I’m having fun keeping an eye out for interesting panoramas and I definitely think this one qualifies. Since we’re on the subject, I posted the second panorama that I took that weekend of the boardwalk in Ocean City.
