New Years Day 2019: To start the year off right, I decided to go out and do some shooting. With rolls of film and my trusty Leica M4, my destination that afternoon was Quansoo, a beautiful beach on the south shore of Martha’s Vineyard.
It was extremely windy and the ocean water was quite active. My goal was to experiment with these conditions using a 1.8 ND filter and tripod during the bright afternoon sun. How to capture the motion of the beach grasses and the waves that were crashing to the shore in a photograph? The experiment was great fun, and the results are somewhat pleasing – I hope you agree. The project and image names were inspired by the film High Society.
