Summer Waves – Sony A7rII

Some of the strangest weather I’ve experienced in Southern California this last week. We were driving south on the 405, it was 100 degrees outside, then 10 minutes later, it was 75 and raining. 

Usually, when we get this crazy weather, we also get insane sunsets. I’m glad I was able to make it to Huntington Beach. I was thinking the sunset was going to be a dud, but nature gave a nice surprise.


Summer Waves – Sony A7rII

This was shot on the Sony A7rII with the Sony 16-35mm f4 OSS lens. Beach and wave photography is always a challenge because you really need to sit there and hit the shutter over and over again until you get the waves how you like it. I always bracket in these situations, so when I’m done, I end up with hundreds of files to sift through at the end of the day.

I ended up combining two photos for this shot to get the water how I wanted and had to paint a lot of people out.
