One of the things I love about the internet and photography is that is gives you a relatively easy mechanism to connect to local photographers when you go travelling. Just do a bit of research, see who’s photos you like in a particular area… drop them and email and presto…. local guide.
During the week I got an email from a German photographer called Chris who is visiting Sydney… asked for some recommendations on locations…. next thing you know we were out at Coogee Pool shooting this morning during the mini dust storm. I’ve met so many photographers from all over the world (and country). It’s great to be able to share your favorite places with them and have them take you to their favorite places.
I took this shot after being drenched by a wave splashing up. I loved the soft lighting that the dust clouds had created. I’m so used to shooting harsh early morning light that it was a pleasure to shoot in the relatively low contrast light of this morning.
