As the temperatures in Phoenix were pushing 115 degrees, we decided that is was time to hit the beach! We packed up and headed west to San Diego! The first night we headed to La Jolla to check out the beach.
We found ourselves at Scripps Beach late in the afternoon. Looking up the beach, we noticed a long concrete pier reaching out into the ocean. As the sun had already set, Teresa had the idea to set up her camera right above the water with a slow shutter speed. This camera angle creates three significant effects. First, as the pier is very long, shooting between the pillars gives the infinity effect. Second, the sunlight reflects off the water and projects this great soft light onto the pillars and the bottom of the pier. Finally, the slow shutter speed masks the waves and allows the movement of the sand to show through.
