Here are the “other photos” from the morning at Windansea Beach – I already mentioned them when I posted “Take Me To The Sea“. Just like in 2015, I’m trying to keep my processing backlog small at the beginning of the year. This will prove futile in a couple of months of course, but at least I try! :-) Interestingly, the four frames below are all vertical – I guess I have a preference for using the wide angle lens vertically, and here’s why:
With a vertical setup, it’s easier to include “interesting things” in the frame because it allows me to keep the camera higher up, and still get a lot of the immediate foreground. A horizontal setup on the other hand means getting down lower – which makes for photos that look more interesting simply because we don’t perceive our surroundings from a frog perspective, but also squashes everything beyond the immediate foreground closer together. And that reduces the depth somewhat.
The best photo of the four images below is the first one for me – which also happens to be the very first photo that I made that morning. Maybe the first one will find a way into my portfolio selection, I’ll have to see if it will grow on me…
