07/30/10 - spear-fishing trip - John Cameron

So I went spear-fishing with some of my buddies. I took the camera along and I got some great shots. We left around 7:30am, so that gave me the opportunity to get some good shots with the sun rising. I did some silhouettes with the sun behind the subject. I'm really starting to get into that. I think it looks awesome.

Cell Phone Picture taking? July 26, 2010

Rudee Rocket 5:30pm ride. The sun dropping gets blocked by a small cloud darkening the ocean, lighting up hotels in Virginia Beach
A thunderstorm rolls through down a few miles south, and the sun pokes out to brighten up the U.S. flag on our stern
The Cape Henry Lighthouses at Cape Henry, Virginia Beach
So it is the summer time here on the east coast of the United States. I've been working on the Rudee Rocket, in which I have worked on every summer since 2004. I haven't had any "pro" photo shoots for a while, and I have realized that I should take my nice D-SLR to work more often (we just get wet a lot on the boat). The ocean can be so awesome with the crazy weather that rolls in. I have tried to capture some of this "awesomness" from my horrible 2 megapixel cell phone camera. It's a tough task, but it is better than nothing right?
