I grew up in Florida and spent lots of time at beaches and walking under piers. Love this picture!

This is absolutely beautiful! What town is Sharky's pier in? I used to take pictures off the pier in Naples, at sunset.

Behind The Lens

Location

I took this shot on a Hot, Humid rainy day in Venice, FL

Time

I ended up finally getting the shot at 7:45 P.m. after waiting for the people all around trying to get the perfect sunset shot.

Lighting

I really wanted to show movement with the cloudy sky but without a tripod I didn't dare go longer than 1/60th of a second. The sky was moody with lot's of diffused color from the sunset along with the water beneath the pier being lit up to have a aqua color.

Equipment

I shot this with my Canon 5D Mark III with my Rokinon 14mm lens. This wide angle really captured the moment and all the surroundings to make this shot.

Inspiration

I remember searching for a shot while I was in Florida for a few days and this shot was my favorite one. I scouted out an area early one afternoon only to leave it in search of other spots, I came back to it a few hours later to set up my shot but had forgot my tripod. I really wanted to get the surf action so I dropped my shutter to 1/60th of a second and took a breath and pressed the shutter. When I came back there were so many people around trying to get the sunset pictures I had a hard time getting my turn without people in the shot. The sun was going down fast, luckily there was enough cloud cover to diffuse the light so I could get my shot.

Editing

I use Lightroom for all of my photos and usually landscape photos need a little processing to get the image I actually saw. Some shots though don't require much and after you do process it sometimes the effects actually are worse. I ended up ditching what I normally do for landscape photos and other than bumping up the orange and yellows and a little bit of sharpening this is pretty much out of camera.

In my camera bag

I usually have pretty much my whole set of gear with me because you never know which lens will work until your there and I've missed shots before because I didn't bring the right lens. I have my Canon 5D Mark III, Canon 24-105mm f/4L, Rokinon Prime 14mm f/2.8, Canon Prime 20mm f/2.8, Canon Prime 50mm f/1.8, Canon 70-300mm f/5.6, Canon 70-200 /2.8L, spare batteries, Charger, Intervalometer, Lens cleaner, Notebook for notes, flashlight with Red filter, hat, Assortment of Filters like CPL, UV, ND and Clear

Feedback

I would say watch the weather and depending on if it's a sunrise or sunset scope out your area the day before for sunrise and during the day for sunsets. Check to see if there will be clouds. On day of shoot for sunrise get there 45 mins to an hour before sunrise the time just before sunrise usually has the best colors. For Sunsets get there the same 45 mins early and stay 45 mins to an hour after sunset. Sometimes the show doesn't start until well after sunset, I've left early only to miss the best part of the sunset. It takes a lot of patience but in the long run you will be happy with your image.
