A great sand sculpture and photo, really gets across a feeling of loneliness and despair. A beautiful tribute to one of the best actors of our time.

Behind The Lens

Location
Virginia Beach, Virginia
Time
Mid afternoon on a sunny day. This sand sculpture exhibit was under a tent.
Lighting
The lighting is natural with a tent overhead and an open doorway allowing light in.
Equipment
Nikon D300 with 80mm f1.8 I believe.
Inspiration
My family decided to take a trip down to the beach to see the sand sculpture contest. I was especially moved by this exhibit because it was a tribute to Robin Williams, who had recently passed.
Editing
Basic sharpening and converted to black and white.
In my camera bag
Nikon D300, D700, Assorted fixed focal length lenses.
Feedback
Just have a camera with you so when you encounter wonderful things you can capture them. Be mindful of lighting and how it flows over the subject. Change your angle of view to see things in a different perspective.
