โ€œTo accomplish the perfect image, I changed my shutter speed to freeze the moment while I pushed the boat to the middle. I captured this using continuous shooting and was able to find the perfect moment.

๐Ÿ“ท: @mark_o_foto "a great photo starts with a great composition. before you pull out the tripod, walk the area, take test shots at different angles, and look for leading lines or interesting features. when you’ve found your perfect composition, pull out the tripod and dial in the shot. second bit of advice, don’t forget to enjoy the view. it’s easy to get caught up in trying to capture the perfect photo that you forget to take in what you’re there to photograph." | a7 iii | 16-35mm gm | 21mm | f18 | 25 sec | iso 100 | nd filter | #sonyalpha #bealpha

A typical winter’s day in hawaii captured by @chau1988 ๐Ÿค™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿค™๐Ÿฝ "winter usually means ice cold water and dark moody skies. but, that’s not the case in hawaii. hawaii stays warm and sunny, and it usually means the swells are coming in as well. that means it is time to jump into the heavy shore breaks and try to capture the beautiful creations by mother nature." | a7r iii w/ underwater housing) | 28mm f/2 | #sonyalpha #bealpha

"golden frames" captured by san francisco based photographer @scottys.frames ๐ŸŒ‰ here's a tip๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿฝ "go beyond the obvious when taking your shot by looking for things like puddles, natural leading lines, and other elements that can make your shot unique! i tend to go to a location having seen a photo that inspires me and then work to try to find a unique composition that is truly mine!" | a7r ii | 16-35mm gm | f/18 | 30 sec | iso 400 | #sonyalpha #bealpha

"it was a chilly morning at spirit island with gentle snow and a temperature of -5 degrees. we paddled in the dark from the camp ground to reach this location. when we got there, we waited wrapped in our sleeping bag for the sun to rise and warm us up." | a7r ii | 16-35mm f2.8 gm | 16mm | 30 sec | iso 1250 | #sonyalpha #bealpha
