This past Sunday I was lucky enough to spend a few hours at Island Beach State Park in New Jersey. The sky was perfect. The park stunningly beautiful. I love the winter beach vibe. Along with traditional photo capturing, I took some impressionistic liberties. This popular abstract approach has various names in the world of photography: motion blurs, swipes, intentional camera movement, slow shutter speed, to name a few. Applying this in-camera technique allowed me to really tease out the mood that surrounded me...cold, for sure, windy, yes, but yet dreamy, other worldly. I softened the "color" of the day to a peaceful blue green - because even with all the weather elements whipping and swirling around me - it was calm and serene. I can't wait to go back!
All comments welcomed! I leave you with a quote on calm and storm:
"There are some things you learn best in calm, and some in storm."
