Labor Day 2020

Select images from the pandemic

By Telephoto.pro

I have for you now a couple of shots up top from yesterday with the 600mm when I was down at Windansea and then Pacific Beach at the foot of Grand Avenue looking south. I was shooting handheld at ISO 100. I enjoy the compression that lens gives, everything’s foreshortened. Years ago, when I shot in nightclubs for @reviewermag a lot and before, I favored wide angle lenses with a flash because I liked the distorted effect of how a wide angle bent the image. Everyone was drinking, partying and dancing or watching a band, and it was quasi-hallucinogenic. I’d be drinking too and being social was easy because a wide angle lens requires you to get closer to people. But right now with the pandemic I don’t really like being close to people I don’t know and want to keep my distance so the fisheye lenses are all packed away. Long lenses suit my personality. It was sightly overcast here with haze from the Valley fire and felt a bit cooler than Saturday and Sunday. #telephoto #photolog #sandiego #reviewermag

This guy in these two last images was paddling around with a sand bucket on his head like he just showed up from a kegger on the beach. I was driving by and shooting from my driver’s window, only staying for a minute or two. I didn’t get a shot of him riding just padding for waves. Handheld 600mm Tamron f5.6 lens at full focal length (second shot cropped in tight with first full image), ISO 100, Nikon RAW image post-Photoshop. #telephotopro #reviewermag #handheld #600mm #telephotolens #tamron #nikon @ Windansea Beach
