Sometimes when I’m out *making photographs serendipitous things happen! I set-out on a spring evening to shoot the sunset on the Boston Harbor. When I got to Fan Pier park I was pleasantly surprised to see the historic tall ship Sagres from Portugal docked on the harbor. Very cool!
As I was shooting the sunset I wasn’t crazy about how the pictures were turning out, so I used a technique named HDR (high dynamic range) to save the day.
Once I decided to go home I was surprised to find out there was a firework show! 🎇 If you know me, you know I love shooting fireworks!
All of these things added up to a magical evening of shooting photos on the Boston Harbor. Good things happen when you force yourself to get out and shoot! Even if you don’t come home with a money shot – it’s still a good thing to practice your craft.
*Earlier I used the word “making” instead of “taking” as photography isn’t about “taking” photos – but “making” photos.
