This past summer I had the incredible honor to lead a workshop alongside Rachel Nielsen Photography, focused on finding the light in each and every situation, no matter the weather or time of day. There is always light to be found, and our goal was to find it and use it to its fullest potential. We had such an awesome group of ladies that joined us (SO MUCH TALENT!) and while we didn’t see a ton of clouds, we rocked the full sun of the mid-day (and a very comical trek through rising tide waters) and came back to savor every last bit of the evening hours on the gorgeous Oregon Coast. I woke up early the morning before and witnessed an amazing sunrise, and to my great delight, DEER on the beach. We don’t get deer on beaches in Texas. 😉
We started our day in the middle of the day, a time photographers usually avoid, but not us! We practiced using full sun, various amounts of shade, even dappled light, and we played with our specialty lenses to create interesting effects.
That evening, we returned to the beautiful Neskowin, Oregon beach to gobble up all that beautiful golden hour light.
In the morning, we went back for more, because duh! I couldn’t get enough of all that incredible, soft, sparkling light. Our little model was SO cold, but SO adorable (and that HAIR!), and it was all worth it when she got to play in the sand afterwards.
I’m ending this post with some beautiful scenery pictures because this place was just too beautiful.
