Dawning Astern

A Chesapeake crab scrape (Jamie Lee) cruises at dawn to begin a day of crabbing in the waters around Smith Island. This image is a preview of a collection of Smith Island photographs I captured last August. I like the color and low values in this hand held hi ISO VR shot I took immediately before dawn. A little camera tilt along with a bit of motion blur adds to the feeling of movement in this shot.

   I'm sorry the posts have been a bit sparse lately, too much of that "work" stuff getting in the way again.







Smith Island Lights

This nocturne rendering features reflections from a crab shanty shortly before dawn on Smith Island. The waterman's day begins very early each morning. In the darkest before dawn hour, this was the only thing that auto focus could lock onto. I made this VR shot (vibration reduction) from the Jamie Lee as we were heading out from the dock. Adjustments made in the digital darkroom with DXO 9 and Photoshop CS5.
