abused broken in my new camera.
I took it to Laguna Beach late yesterday.
I sat, fully dressed, in the surf and took photos of the sunset.
It was one of the prettiest sunsets I’ve seen in months.
Summer Sunset in Laguna Beach.
I drove home once the sky had turned completely dark.
My car is full of sand.
My shower is full of sand.
And today I’ll be spending hours cleaning multiple lenses and my no-longer-new camera.
I’ll also be going through all the photos I took.
I really put the camera through its paces.
I was constantly changing settings and experimenting with how far I can push it in various circumstances.
I have to say, based on my first glance at the photos,
The camera is capable of stunning results with an experienced user.
(For those of you photo nerds out there, I took seventy percent of last night’s photos with my Canon 11-24 lens – which is pretty damn amazing in its own right.)
I hate going to our local beaches around holidays and/or during the summer months when they’re overrun by tourists.
But, we’re having funky weather so I *must* go.
Funky weather equals stunning sunsets.
There’s no better way to get familiar with a new camera than to shoot with it.
I’m already scheming on some possible mixed media art pieces using some of last night’s photos.
