So I’ve been doing a thing, I’ve been shooting seascapes and water without a tripod.
I didn’t even think it to be possible to get handheld water streaks until I heard a podcast with William Patino who mentioned he doesn’t use a tripod at all.
Being able to get into hard to reach compositions without fiddling with a tripod is nice & having the freedom to get the hell out of there when a wave hits is handy too
This shot was 1/3 of a second but involved saying very still and breathing super low
I’m not saying I’m gonna ditch the tripod and give hand held astrophotography a go 🤣
but it's definitely something to think about - have you tried shooting seascapes without a tripod?
~Ci credo fermamente, l'impossibile è solo un limite della nostra mente~
Lo dico sempre, a tutte le persone che mi stanno intorno e che si pongono da sole barriere che li tengono ancorati a credenze stupide come "non ci riesco", "non sono in grado", "non sono all'altezza". I limiti sono solo ostacoli che costruiamo da soli nella nostra mente!
A me piace la filosofia del "se vuoi puoi" e da quando ho cominciato ad applicarla la mia vita è decisamente più felice 🌈
Photography appeals to me because an image contains so much more than can be put into words. It is the difficult yet integral task of the photographer to capture not just a moment in time but to do so in a manner that portrays something deeper. This might be how that snapshot fits into a larger context or perhaps an artistic expression of something the photographer might be drawn to at a certain moment. The result is a beautiful representation of something that could be either fleeting or forever captured. In the same way that a hand-written letter feels so genuinely sentimental, photography allows us an intimate view but for a moment of how it might have felt to see the world through another’s eyes.
