This is AquaStorms shot at my local beach, North Beach. I've always loved storms and the ability to capture them is something simply beautiful.
My interested started early when I started following a storm photographer who I believe to be the best in the world, the late Dale Sharpe. I used to watch his behind the scenes on Insta in absolute awe, study his images with so much enthusiasm. I'd try and replicate his cloudscapes with an iPhone, when I asked questions he'd happily answer.
Fast forward to today and I am still learning how to shoot the dark moody skies. A few days before this shot I had watched a Nikon School session by Will Eades, armed with my refreshed knowledge to suit shooting with the Z6 I waited for a storm to arrive. Lucky for me it was on a weekend and just near my home, this night the storms were quite a distance off the coast and I missed capturing my first bolt - and still trying to shoot one!
I replayed the settings, tips and tricks I had learnt and bolted home to check what I had captured, by-the-way editing a storm cloud is another whole new learning experience as the colour corrections can go dramatically wrong!
However, I am very happy with the results of this shot.
