Sometimes to get the shots you want you have to take some risks with your equipment. The following photos are an example of this. I headed out to Kyodo Interchange area (see map), one of my favorite places for sunset to catch what looked to be a great sky for a sunset shoot this past Saturday. Once I arrived at the location, it turned out to be much windier and the sea rougher than I was expecting. That's not going to stop me though... I found the location I wanted to setup at and started shooting. One particular area on top of this rock outcropping I placed my tripod and camera right on the edge. The camera was getting sloshed pretty bad with the waves coming in, and I had to keep taking the water drops off my variable ND filter I had attached. Once I had what I wanted from this location I moved to a few other places and come home with several shots I was very happy with. Go ahead and check out the gallery above. All three of these photos are available for purchase as prints. Just select them and you will be taken to my prints website.
