One of the many reasons why I love Maine is for its rocky coastline. From a photography standpoint, it provides me with ample opportunity to create a unique composition; I could easily visit the same location many times over and still discover something new. Differing combinations of focal length, depth of field, shutter speed, and light can contribute to an entire portfolio of the same location, with each image having its own distinctive character.
From a more personal perspective, my magnetism to the Maine coast runs much deeper. I’ve spent years visiting the same beaches, and each time evokes a new experience for me. Winter or summer, evening or morning, high tide or low – the smells, sounds, and atmosphere always come together in a unique manner, and I take a small piece of each experience with me.
