I love it when I'm inspired by other peoples work, to me this is what keeps my passion for photography alive. Creativity is something that grows like a force of nature,every true artist sees the world in a slightly different light to the conformist dullards who are unable to be inspired by any one or anything. Love your shot by the way! Sorry about the waffle lol.

How kind of you to say! :) Thank you so much. I was yelled at (By family lol) for venturing out there but to me, it is what I do and it drew me in. Michigan is constantly changing and the beauty it has to offer is never ending.

Behind The Lens

Location
This shot was taken at the South Haven Light House, South Haven, Michigan
Time
Time of day was late afternoon before the sun started to go down.
Lighting
There wasn't a lot of natural light to work with as it was a semi overcast day. It involved patiently waiting for the sun to peek out behind the clouds to take the shot.
Equipment
Camera: NIKON D3200 Aperture: f/7.1 ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/200 Focal Length: 300/10 No flash. Hand Held.
Inspiration
I have always had a passion for light houses. Having grown up along the shores of Lake Michigan, they have always been a part of my life. I have spent many hours over the years watching the ever changing sunsets, storms, waves that roll over then and calming waters that surround them. Every day is different while the houses stand proud calling the boaters safely home. This particular shot was taken after a storm rolled through, whipping up the waves and freezing them in place
Editing
Not much for this one. A little HDR to make it pop and give the clouds better definition.
In my camera bag
Nothing fancy. Nikon D300, Nikon D5200, lens cleaner, extra batteries.
Feedback
Dress warm. Wear boots or shoes with lots of tread so you don't slip off into the water. Use common sense when wandering out on a pier under these kinds of conditions.
