The Beauty of Florida - Year In Review 2016

The Beauty of the Treasure Coast

Last year I vowed to get out more and photograph the beauty of my new home here in Florida. Unfortunately, most of my travel plans which included a trip to St. Augustine, Florida and a return trip home to California were postponed because of health issues with my dog Logan. (He's making great progress but he is getting older).

The year started off with a trip down to Fort Lauderdale for a couple nights. While I was visiting I had the opportunity to check out Lauderdale-by-the-Sea and Pampano Beach. Both have terrific piers. One of my highlights was dining at Casa Fida Mexican Cuisine. If you haven't checked it out, it's worth a visit. Very good eats and vibe.

Most of the year was spent photographing local area locations that I've found along the Treasure Coast since relocating from California. Some of my favorite go-to spots are in Sebastian (Sebastian Inlet State Park), Wabasso (Rock City Gardens), Vero Beach (McKee Botanical Garden), Fort. Pierce (Fort Pierce Inlet State Park), and Stuart (House of Refuge & Bathtub Reef Beach). Below is a round up of images taken this year that I haven't added to the portfolio page plus a couple newly processed images. Hope you enjoy!

Wishing you and your family a Happy New Year!

Daytime Long Exposure Tutorial with Scott Kelby

This is one of my favorite tutorials from Weekly Photo Tips featuring Scott Kelby that will produce excellent results.

 

At right is a photo I took at Seal Beach Pier. It's a 40 second daytime exposure taken on a very bright day.

You'll need to purchase a neutral density filter, and it will set you back a few bucks. A neutral density filter will allow you to shoot at long shutter speeds in the daylight. By doing so, it  will blur motion. Uses include landscape photography with ocean waves and/or moving clouds.

Hope you enjoy.

Scott
