Surf at dusk, Waitoetoe

Surf at dusk, Waitoetoe

This simple, moody abstract is a long exposure in north Taranaki, further north from Turangi Rd (my previous post).

This fine art photo is printed […]

Most magazine photos with close-up subjects (especially people) are illuminated in the same way, but often with the subject massively highlighted. The Sugar Loaves – so […]
