One of my earlier shots, this one isn’t the most expertly-composed, but the feeling I got after opening it up in Photoshop and physically feeling the warmth that they image conveyed, it quickly became one of my favorites.
Good morning friends! Today I wanted to share a shot from last weekend I took from the Sarasota Bayfront, but also mention a creative choice I’ve made recently (which is entirely unconsequential to you guys), and that is to begin presenting my images in 16:9 widescreen format.
Photographers use several different formats depending on their photography style and equipment; Peter Lik uses an extreme panoramic ratio to accentuate the wide, sweeping view he has envisioned, while a photographer concentrating on shots for Instagram might crop using the 1:1 (square) format.
After doing some test crops, I feel the 16:9 format will lend itself well to my type of photography, which usually straddles the line between landscape and nature.
This shot is in 16:9 to get us started, I hope you guys have a great week!
Taken at a large lake outside of Sarasota, tall reeds and grasses grow near the shoreline.
Celery Fields is the highest natural point in Sarasota, and I can tell you it’s definitely strange to be so high in this flat state that is Florida. Taken at sunset, I felt this image translated better to what I saw in black and white.
Majestic condo units tower above the Sarasota Bayfront just before sunset.
Island Park, a popular park on the bayfront, features an impressive dolphin fountain display set against many interesting backdrops, including downtown Sarasota, and from this angle, a waterfront hotel.
Dozens of boats occupy the docks on the Sarasota Bayfront as the sun sets and night approaches.
Thousands of stars reveal themselves as night falls over Turtle Beach.
Even the full moon’s light can’t completely shroud the stars glowing over Siesta Key.
