Riders on the Storm... So I really don’t use photoshop much, but this shot needed it. Let me explain.
First of all, the seas were incredibly rough that day with a huge storm approaching. As we loaded #suitandtieguy and @dawsonthefrenchton into the boat my brother Dave started having second thoughts… “Geez man the waves are kinda big don’t you think?” Naaa I said as I untied the rope, and with a heave ho I pushed them away from the dock and out into the open ocean.
I quickly jumped into the second boat with my camera, tripod, speed flash with soft box, reflector, etc, braving the towering waves and rowing my way towards the other boat. Meanwhile #suitandtieguy is bailing water out of his boat as the waves continually wash over them. The people on shore placed a call to the local Coast Guard as the storm picked up steam. I yelled at suitandtieguy over the sound of the crashing waves to grab the dog and get into position. I set my shutter speed to match the roll of the waves and quickly snapped off a shot.
Fail! 😫 The dog wasn’t looking! This time I grabbed a dog biscuit out of my camera bag (I knew it would come in handy one day) and held it up for the dog to see, screaming into the now hurricane force winds I yelled “Cheeeeese!” and snapped off a second shot. Success!
The Coast Guard arrived not too long afterwards and brought us back to shore safe and sound. 😅
So where does photoshop come into the story you ask? Afterwards I realized a shark had swam into the picture and photobombed us so I used photoshop to clone it out. 🤷🏻♂️ #everywordistrue 😇
