p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Nightfall Nickerson


These photos are from the end of my shoot on Sunday August 24, 2014 at Nickerson Beach, NY. It was such a nice evening that I did not want to leave. All of these photos are taken using the last glow of light. Walking out was quite an experience as it was so dark I could barely make out the edge of the dunes so the trail through them was invisible till I was on top of it. As I walked across the sandy beach, birds that I did not see would suddenly leap into the air when I was about 3 feet from them. As the number of birds on the beach was in the thousands the air would fill with the sounds of there wings cutting through the air. I chose not to use my light as this experience was so special.

Processing includes creative white balance, exposure adjustment, vibrance, saturation, and curves to taste and to bring back what I saw.

Comments and suggestions welcome,
