Join Justin Reznick for an in-depth discussion in this video Shooting a tropical sunset scene, part of Landscape Photography: Tropical Scenes.
- We're here on Maui with a chance…to photograph a beautiful sunset.…First thing was getting ready…and that meant putting on a pair of shoes…that have great traction.…What's very unique about why…is the black lava.…These are relatively young islands…and as you move along the shore…you find these wonderful black rocks…that provide interesting channels…that the water just shoots right through.…So it's very important that I have shoes with good traction.…If I had left my flip flops on this would be very dangerous.…
We want to be as safe as possible.…The next thing I did was…always keep my eyes on the ocean.…I'm looking right out at the horizon,…I'm watching waves come in.…I never want to be caught off guard by a wave,…not only for my own safety…but also the safety of my gear as well.…When I see a big wave come up I lift my camera up…and make sure it stays nice and dry.…I plan on shooting many days ahead in Hawaii.…The last thing I want is to ruin my camera…at any particular moment so let's make sure…you keep yourself safe and your camera safe as well.…
