The Birds, Edit

When you spend much of your free time photographing sun rise and set, you have to find new ways of making the same thing look new. Go wide, zoom in, tilt the camera, shift the focus. In this image I wanted to make the foreground as meaningful as the background.

There were a bunch of birds hanging out on the beach. I set my camera then walked through them taking man exposures. They flew around then came back to the same spot. I did it again and again… In post, I blended a bunch of images into one, when allowed me to choose where birds are in the sky. The pier is clear in view, but silhouettes cover the rest of the scene. It’s okay to lie, sometimes.
