Tiger Shell And Pebbles - Beachcomber Series by 

“Tiger Shell And Pebbles – Beachcomber Series”

I decided to explore the shoreline at the beach in the late afternoon for any shells or strange little things that I could take macro photographs of. I liked the striped pattern on this little shell – the black and orange reminded me of the stripes on a Tiger.

I crouched down to get a low, almost level perspective for this shot to enhance the view of this mini scene.

Newcastle, Australia.

This Digital Photograph was captured with a Canon 450D and a 55 – 250 mm lens:
F-stop: f/11
Exposure time: 1/50 sec.
ISO speed: ISO-200
Exposure bias: -0.7 step
Focal length: 250 mm [ on a 55-250 mm lens ]
WB: Cloudy
Aperture Priority

I enjoy the whole creative process from beginning to end and seek to discover and portray the world in all of it’s rich, intense colours and interesting forms, textures and subjects. I draw inspiration from the harmonious colour schemes often present in the natural environment when creating my Graphic Designs, or composing a Photograph or other work.

    Great use of DOF James. Excellent

  • Thanks Dave! By choosing f/11 I was looking for a deeper band of focus as opposed to the bokeh, but in this shot it didn’t eventuate.

    Nice composition…great work

  • Thank you for your nice feedback! I’d love to shoot it again in bright sunlight, but they wash away into the sea so easily/often while shooting there and it’s hard to find one that isn’t breaking into bits.
