My preferred approach was to walk the half mile or so around the harbor towards the north. From this vantage point there are endless opportunities to photograph lone craft at anchor in the harbor. Setting the aperture at f/4.5 provided enough of a pop for the boats as a central focal point, while maintaining some detail on the background. In this particular instance, the background represented a sensational opportunity to juxtapose a stormy mountainous horizon against the serene windless conditions in the harbor, enjoying a band of sunlight not in evidence in the background. Another advantage was that this allowed the colour to really become a feature of the image, with the ripples of glorious blue set against the primary colours of the boat’s hulls. Potential subjects in the harbour were endless, and the conditions meant that I could shoot hand held, taking as many shots as I pleased without having to reconfigure a tripod every few minutes. It can actually be quite advantageous to be shoot so indiscriminately, it provides some “muscle memory” in composing each shot, instinctively setting the boats along the intersection of lower third gridline of each image.
