Dog Days at the Beach

_DSC1836-950px-Edit

The dog days, with summer winding down – a good time to visit the beach. These images were taken at Pear Tree Point Beach in Darien, Connecticut.

So, there’s always this question – do you ask someone’s permission to take their picture or just grab it surreptitiously?  With the lifeguard, who was a pretty cool dude, I wanted to get right under his stand, so I asked him and then told him to ignore me, which he did.

This girl was pretty wrapped up in her music – I didn’t ask. I shot from over 100 feet away with a long telephoto lens.

By the way, be sure to click on each image to see it in a LARGER and clearer view.

I definitely asked this little girl and her grandma as well if I could photograph her. She was mostly interested in her ice cream, but she engaged with me for quite a few shots.

Have you ever noticed how little kids – who normally get bored easily – can happily play for hours on end at the beach?

My last image, below, was not at the beach, but was taken at Rowayton Harbor.  “Mom” helped set this shot up by throwing a tennis ball into the water a few times.

Ah, the dog days…

At the Beach with Christina

Regular readers know that I’ve been working on a continuing personal project with Christina, pictured here, to photograph her over a period of 10 weeks, in a variety of settings.

If you missed some of the earlier blog posts, see the blue links to the right, with Christina’s name in the title.

Last week, we went to a local beach cove and took pictures from about 5pm to 7pm.  With some clouds around and the sunset fast approaching, the light changed every few minutes. So, it was necessary to continually adjust camera settings as well as the strength and angle of the flash. I get spoiled in the studio where I can instinctively set and control my light for hours on end! But this evening was good practice for staying on your toes as conditions changed.

For this shoot, I was ably assisted by my fabulous new 12-year old photo assistant, Ridgely. I used a small flash unit in most of these images and Ridgely held the light for me. But she also held “flags” (you have to look up what a photography flag is!), did some fashion styling and was generally a big help all around. Thank you, Ridgely!

Christina and I are coming to the end of our project – sad to say! I plan to pull together a few of the images from each of our shoots into a video slide show. Stay tuned for details. Christina – you’ve been a joy to work with!

In the Park with Christina

 

 

Having terrific fun in my continuing photography project with Christina. This week we went outside for the first time, to a local park. If you haven’t seen any of the pictures from our earlier shoots, check out the blue links to the right, with the name “Christina” in the title.

We just have 2 or 3 more shoots to do. I’m beginning to think about how to bring together many of the images from our 10 weeks of pictures. It might be a video slide show of the photographs, with Christina singing one of the songs she has written and performed. You can hear her terrific voice at Christina Mae.

Stay tuned – literally and figuratively! Thanks again to Christina for collaborating with me on this creative adventure.
