Ying and Yang

I really don’t know why these two stick together because every time I see them they are squawking at each other. Perhaps it because they are from the same flock.

I was up early to teach a sunrise workshop on the north shore. I had a 14 x 24 mm lens and was teaching wide angle environmental portraits along the waters edge. It was a productive session and I was on the way back to the car, when I noticed these birds. As quick as I could I changed camera settings and just had enough time to capture this moment before they flew away.

One of the goals of the workshop was to manage motion to create emotion. Here is an image created that day. Notice the silky appearance. That is the result of slow shutter speed.

If you would like to have a unique Maui experience, consider a private photography workshop and see the island through the eyes of a Master Photographer, while you learn.
