As I mentioned on Sunday, I got a new lens for Christmas and I took it out shooting New Years Day. My mom and I took our first of many trips in 2012 to Ecola State Park and Indian Beach near the town of Cannon Beach, Oregon. If you follow my blog you know I love sunsets, silhouettes and the beach. This picture has all 3! And the new lens performed really well and allowed me to capture my favorite thing to shoot. It really is true what I have read on countless blogs, a new lens can make a world of difference in your photos. I cannot wait for the numerous visits to the beach that I know are in my future and a chance to use my lens more. My goal with the photo was to capture the stunning color in the sky and the mist coming off the waves as they rolled in. I metered off the pink in the sky as that was the color that stood out to me. For the edit, I converted it to black and white in Lightroom. I increased the contrast, brightness and clarity. I added a touch of fill light and decreased the blacks. I really like the end result, but love that I have the color version as well.
