I love the simplicity of Black and White images.. Have always enjoyed looking at black and whites with blown highlights and negative space.. Until this image I had never quite achieved what I was aiming for..

Behind The Lens

Location

This image was captured at Mona Vale Beach on the Northern Beaches Sydney

Time

This was a cold sunrise in the middle of winter

Lighting

This image with blown highlights had Black and White written all over it..

Equipment

For this image I used my Canon 6d with Canon 16-35mm f4 L lens and I think I used a 6 stop ND Nisi filter and a Landscape Cpl. I wasn't swimming with my DLSR it was set up on my Sirui W2205 carbon tripod.

Inspiration

No lack of inspiration for seascapes at this awesome location.

Editing

The blown highlights inspired the Black and white processing of this image in Lightroom Cx

In my camera bag

I have a bag full of Canon L lenses and a Samyang 14mm f2.8 and have just added a DJI Mavic 2 Pro to my kit..

Feedback

Get out and shoot.. Don't be afraid to get wet. You haven't been seascaping unless your dripping wet walking back to your car..
