Favourite Pictures - A stroll on the beach 1

Out for a stroll on the beach

This picture was taken on the beach at Dunwich when I was trying to take a picture of the pebbles with the sea breaking in the background. As I was taking various versions of that picture James walked past and I took a picture with his foot in the background. This made me think that it might be nice to use James as the subject of the picture but still frame it from very low down by the pebbles. I did a bit of post processing and re-cropped the picture to get the horizon level (even though the nex has a level display which I normally have turned on this was using the LCD in bright sunlight so I couldn’t actually see it). I also used the lens hyperfocal distance scale to set the focusing.

This image was taken with a Takumar 28mm f/3.5 m42 wide angle lens mounted on a Camdiox focal reducer.

I’m a software developer by profession but I’ve been taking pictures since I was about 8 years old. In that time I’ve owned cameras of all types and sizes from 120 roll film thro’ 35mm to my current Pentax K-5, Ricoh GXR + P10/S10/A12 28mm/A12 50mm, Canon S95 and recently acquired Sony NEX 6.
