Spread the word about Secret Morning

Seattle, Washington
The moment I saw this dock, before I even pressed the shutter, I knew it was going to be an epic shot. The simplicity, the colors, and the clean space surrounding the entire dock opened my mind to total freedom. It was such a delicate scene – it had to be perfect. The colors, the mist, the composition, and the time of day were all working in my favor. The last component I was struggling with was the water – it had to have a serene feel. Without that, it’s not what I envisioned in my mind. 

To give the image a painterly feel, a dreamlike state – I needed to push the boundaries of photography. I decided to pull out a neutral density filter – this tricks the camera. With a long exposure I was able to capture that dreamlike state. It looks like it’s floating – exactly the way I’d seen it in my mind. Mother Nature provided me the perfection – I just had to enhance it. 

When you look at this image, I hope you can feel the total peace I did standing here; the serenity in the moment. That’s what photography is all about to me.
