iPhone: Little Beach Photos
This weekend was my spring beach photo workshop and Nancy and Jim were great. As we were finishing up this morning, we were walking back down the beach from shooting the jettys, and I began to see little pieces of delicate seaweed that had been washed ashore. They were beautiful and I suggested some compositions to Jim. As he made some images I walked down shore with the iPhone, snapping little images of the seaweed to create a collection of images. I chose the Hipstamatic app loaded with the Chunky Lens and Cano Cafenol film for the tone and border the combination produces. I thought it would be a great compliment for the subject matter. When I processed them I used Iris and the same Grunge overlay for consistency. I always wear waders for workshops so I can run into and out of the surf as I bring some seashell props to shoot. I realized that my wet boots in the surf would add to the collection and made a shot or two also. Oh and we found a little fish on the beach. He became a part of the collection and a seagull feather too....isn't that what the beach is all about! The edge of land and sea, and the offerings that can be found there....I just kept saying this is the Zen of the beach! Enjoy!
