Golden Naples Pier

Golden Naples Pier

A couple weeks ago some friends and I drove up to Naples Florida to watch the sunset. We kind of go stuck at my house watching Dumb and Dumber so we ended up leaving late. By the time we go to Naples the sun was already setting, and by the time we got our cameras out the sun was gone.

We were bummed out for about 2 minutes until the hues in the sky stared to change to this really nice golden yellow, then it was all good again. Lesson learned, no funny movies before a mini road trip….

Camera Settings:
5 Second Exposure f/18 ISO50 200mm

After a short couple weeks of traveling, its always nice to come home to the amazing Florida weather and Florida Sunsets. It never disappoints waking up to a sunrise or going to sleep after a sunset like this one.

I shot this sunset a few months ago at the Naples pier in Naples Florida. Every day at sunset people line up to watch the sun set over the Gulf, its an incredible site to see. Sometimes its cloudy, sometimes its plain, but one thing is for sure, it never fails to impress.

Camera settings: 1/125 of a second f/11 ISO 320 85mm 24-85mm lens

Ahh Naples Florida, a quiet little town away from the hustle and bustle. I love driving up to Naples from time to time. Its on the West Coast of Florida on the Gulf side so I am able to catch incredible sunsets here. I live in the East coast of Florida so getting up at 5 am to get a sunrise is hard, but worth it when I can actually accomplish it. I prefer sunsets tho, and Naples has them all, not only that but the 2 hr adventure driving through the Everglades is always lots of fun.

I shot this right after the sun had set, the sky turned orange and purple and I couldn’t get enough.

My settings: 90 seconds, F22 ISO 50, I shot it with my 14-24mm lens with out a filter, thats why I had to bring my ISO to the lowest setting and close my aperture quite a bit.

Happy Friday people, the holidays are almost over, hang in there. This is Naples Pier, it is in the West Coast of Florida and its a beautiful place to visit and photograph. I often come here to get away from the noise. I was going through my photos and found this on my archives. I shot this a couple years ago and it still blows me away…

I am hosting a workshop here in the next few weeks so stay tuned for details. Drop me a line if you have any questions, I’d love to hear from you.

Naples after Sunset

Naples after Sunset.
Good morning and happy Monday peeps. What a great weekend I’ve had, my friend Cliff Base is visiting from Texas and we have been click crazy. We have explored and traveled from the East Florida Coast to the West Florida Coast. From the Atlantic Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico and everything in between. Pure awesomeness to say the least.

Here is a photo from Naples Florida about 5 minutes after sunset. I really like how it came together. We were debating on shooting the pier or this location and we decided on this. I am glad we did.

Settings: 30 Seconds, F/16, ISO50, 15mm (14-25mm lens)
