WALKING ON WATER

PHOTOGRAPHY by KRISS on 06 august 2016

Ideas not always come out in photo the way they form in your mind and I know that first hand ! At times my head bursts with ideas that seem excellent at first, difficult to organise and realise after giving them a bit of thought and most definitely awkward when I decide to pursue them to finalisation.

That’s more or less what happened with the following photograph which turned out OK at the end because I love the atmosphere but stands far out from what I wanted in the first place.

My friend Jimmy once again followed me in my madness this time and brought ladders, light, stands etc… Yesterday at 8pm at Playa del Parador in Nerja, we set out to build the stand, a ladder and a wooden plank stringed to 2 small step ladders, then spent a good half hour figuring out why Jimmy’s Godox X1 trigger wasn’t triggering his flash.
It turned out to be he had mistaken the transmitter with the receiver and I must admit the 2 look very similar.

Anyways, our model Sofia arrived around 9pm and after some trials for the light and the shutter speeds, my helpful kids got in the water with the stand.
The forecast had announced a very calm sea but there was a bit of swell and the stand moved a lot.

We had to work close to the shore and the photo at the end doesn’t give the impression she’s completely lost at sea.
Well, I did as well as I could, froze her with rear curtain flashes on a few shots but at the end, I found the atmosphere of that post work a lot more appealing to my eyes.

It certainly isn’t to everyone’s taste, my wife and kids are not too keen on long exposures and I think I’m going to cut down on messing up with that !

But I like it and it changes dramatically from the desperate search for sharpness and definition.
At the end it is what counts !
