As I struggle to finish my to-do list, it dawned on me that I haven’t posted in a few days. I leave for Costa Rica tonight at midnight, spending the next 9 days exploring the country with my mom, so I have been busy getting things together for the trip. I am bringing my laptop so I will be able to process images and continue to post. Check back for some new material from Central America later this week!
Today I wanted to give you an idea what I do when I shoot (and how ridiculous I look at times). Mother Allegro accompanied me to Leo Carillo State Beach last week, bringing my D7000 and 50mm lens. She got some great shots of me (the first three below). Before we left, I waited and shot and waited and shot and waited some more. It was all worth it when I captured the shot at the bottom: A rushing wave, mossy-green rock, blue hour sky, and perched birds in the background. Not bad for handheld, eh?
