Big Sur Sunset – Stuck in Customs

Big Sur Sunset

The Behind-The Scenes Videos

Okay I heard a ton of feedback here and on Google+ from my question a week ago:

  • You would like to see a bunch more behind-the-scenes videos filmed by Anton!
  • You’d like them to focus on technical things, but still with an artistic discussion of composition, light, and how I choose my subjects
  • They will be much more informational and not “commercial-for-SmugMug” like you see here. (BTW, SmugMug did not pay me for this)
My SmugMug Review has a bunch more info for you.

I think we can do all of that!  I’ll talk to the SmugMug guys about sending Anton out to meet me at some exotic spots… these things take a while to execute and plan, but I am on it!

Daily Photo – Big Sur Sunset

Last week I promised I would reveal the photo today that I took during the video above, and here it is.

I guess you can get the sense from that video how windy it was! What a crazy day… I spent all afternoon and evening getting ready for this. There was a decent amount of hiking, preparation, and walking-around to figure out the best place to stand.

Maybe the bad thing about that video is showing how easy it all appears to be… in future videos, you may see some more of the problems that I face and how I deal with them. In some ways, I think that is more real than something that appears to fairy-book perfect!
