Martha's Vineyard: August 12-19, 2017

UPDATE: I wrote this article on the way home from the trip, but unfortunately upon importing the images I found that 2 memory cards worth of photos were damaged, and I have yet to find a way to recover the images. Blame sandisk ultra cards. they are legit some of the worst cards I have ever used, and this is the 5th one that has failed on me in the last year. So just know this this is in fact NOT a full weeks worth of photographs.

I recently got back from a week long trip to Martha's Vineyard, and working on my project 'Harbor Light'. Overall, it was a good trip. I didn't get out to shoot quite as much as I hoped to(got rained out a few times), but I'm happy with the images I came back with. One of the toughest parts about shooting any place on the coast is not just taking shitty sunset photos like the one above, but I think i did a descent job. Not all of these shots will make the cut, but i feel really good about them.

Gear:

My gear on this trip was pretty much as simple as it gets. All images were shot with a nikon d610, a 50mm 1.8 lens, a tripod, and a circular polarizer.

A very basic star photograph. Because it is separated from the mainland, light pollution is low and stars can easily be seen from anywhere on the island
