I started playing around with "water panning" last year, a technique which involves a semi-slow shutter speed and camera movement following moving water. While this kind of creative exploration was put on the back burner during the sailing season, I had to opportunity to try it once again recently!
It was one of the very comfortable and sunny autumn days early this October, and I found myself at Second Beach in Newport, RI. I used my super dark B+W #110 filter to capture the movement while the sun was still up, and I was very happy with the results! The other panning abstracts I had tried involved more of a pastel dusk or pink cloud type of color palette, but this time I was able to capture more deep yellows and golds with the sunlight.
