How do I do it?

Here’s my example of choosing the right Point of Interest.

  • I walked around the rocks for a few minutes and found the most striking point of interest for me.
  • I waited for the waves to circle back around for a flush effect in the water and I’ve tried a couple of different angles that brings out the beauty of my point of interest even more.
  • Like I mentioned, experimented with different shutter speeds and used different lenses.
