Naples Pier At Dusk

Every time I get the chance to go to the West Coast of Florida to shoot the sunset I take it. This is one of my favorite spots on the coast, it is Naples pier. It is an really cool place to photograph of just watch the sunset.

I can’t think of a time when I shot a bad photo here. This was on a very overcast day, it looked like it was going to start pouring, so everyone left the beach. I had the entire place to my self, it was perfect.

I shot this with a 14-24mm Lens here are my settings:
244 seconds at f/22 ISO 50 on my Nikon D800 (no filters)

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

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)
