DLWS San Juan Day 3 PM…The Grand Finale

For our last shoot in the San Juans we headed to Jackl Beach to shoot the sunset.  With dramatic skies, and a little wave action it made for a grand finale.  Once again, another successful DLWS comes to a close.  I think it is safe to say that a good time was had by all.  Moose showed everyone how to straighten a fisheye image in Capture NX2 which I had not done for some time so when the opportunity arose to shoot really wide, I decided to give it a go.  That’s one of the great things about DLWS, not only do we get to work with some really nice people, we learn new techniques, are reminded of techniques we haven’t used in awhile and see the world through thirty additional eyes for a few days.  It’s simply the best!

DLWS San Juans Day 3 AM

We managed to dodge another stormy morning.  So far our DLWS lucky charm is holding.  The weather report was for rain all three days and we have had overcast at the worst.  The clouds parted this morning giving us dramatic skies for sunrise.  I tried one of Josh’s NIK techniques to finish this image…

Wandering around British Camp I saw a warm glow in one of the windows.

DLWS San Juans Day One PM

After a great morning at the marina, we headed to the Forest at British Camp.  The light was played hide and seek through the trees.  With a great group of enthusiastic photographers, it’s fun seeking out the photo opportunities.

I seemed to be in an abstract mood today what with reflections in the AM and zoom blurs in the PM.
