Craddock beach sunrise

I was lucky to catch a few moments of yesterday’s rising sun before it disappeared behind the clouds. The wind was chilly but the waves were perfect — lively enough to make things interesting, but not so wild that they sprayed my camera (or me).

I finally bought myself a cheap wired shutter release (the Vello RS-C1II for those who are curious) and this beach outing was the perfect opportunity to try it out. It worked without a hitch and made it so much easier to capture a wave or water-trail shot than using my camera’s self-timer.

    This is so beautiful. I really like the branch and the small stones in the front to make the photo something extra. I have been thinking about bying me one of those too, I can imagine it becomes more easy to work with long exposured with that.

    Call me dense but I’m not sure why the remote shutter release AND the self-timer on the camera. Doesn’t the self-timer take the shake out no matter how you push the shutter button?

      I use one or the other, not both. The self-timer eliminates the shake, but a two-second delay makes it hard to precisely time a photo of, say, a wave. This would be a situation when I’d use my shutter release instead, so I can take the shot just when I see it with no delay or guesswork.
