ARRIVING Monhegan Island, Maine
For this photo I worked on practicing what Sam Abell taught us during the first day of our workshop.
Compose the picture Sammy and wait - is going through my mind.
The excitement of not knowing how the hand off would take place was certainly part of the fun.
I feel what worked was the young man with the pole was framed within the boat.
The pole didn't touch the back layer and was at a similar angle to the shoreline.
The pilings balanced the photo and gave it a foreground.
The gent on land was positioned well and the moment of him "grabbing" the pole tells the story.
I managed to keep my camera level within the composition - which is something I struggle with. I am absolutely one who shifts with what's happening as I see it through my lens.
I need to work on that.
