Soft Water Panoramic #10
I didn't want my winter photography to become stale. As exciting as it is getting up before the sun in the dead of winter, I needed a new project to work on. This is called water panning, where the camera moves for a fraction of a second with the wave as it forms. This slightly longer shutter speed can create some beautiful smooth effects as the wave builds and moves towards the shoreline.
This was my first attempt at the technique, during dusk hours at Second Beach in Newport. I was hooked and I loved how I was able to capture more than just an image of the wave, but it's energy as well.
