Our Ap­pren­tice says… I headed to the coast with Chris 30 min­utes be­fore sun­set. Un­for­tu­nately, there were no clouds in the sky, as had been the case all day. So that lim­ited my com­po­si­tional choices. I started shoot­ing on the rocks you see in the fore­ground, but the tide quickly came in and, within 30 min­utes, I had to back up onto the sand. The scene changed quickly and those big rocks be­came en­veloped with wa­ter. Chris said that I should limit the amount of sky in my shot and in­stead con­cen­trate on the fore­ground. So I framed the rocks in the fore­ground and in­cluded the moun­tains in the dis­tance. I used f/22 to darken the frame enough to give me a shut­ter speed of 2.5 secs to blur the wa­ter.
