The making of a photograph: Scarlet
For a little change of pace I thought I would share some behind the scenes shots and thoughts that went into one of my shots titled “Scarlet”.
This shot is from a few years ago now, yet it still remains one of the most vibrant and memorable sunsets I have photographed. It was taken at Red Ochre Beach and here is my original post about the evening. The red was truly stunning, and it was fairly brief too. I had been experimenting with different compositions, and by the time the red hit I had found this rocky platform and was able to line it up somewhat symmetrically, with some rocky texture on the left and right of the foreground, and a bit of a pool of water right in the middle. The sky did the rest 🙂
For interest’s sake, here are a series of shots leading up to, and just after, the making of “Scarlet”.
