Synthetic Sirocco.

I'm currently in Santa Barbara, CA, visiting friends, shooting, and hanging out. I just woke up from a two hour nap after watching one of the most incredible sunrises I've had the pleasure of viewing, this morning at 4:30 AM, overlooking the coast of SB (In 30-degree weather, mind you!).


This is an image of my friend Sam, which I shot yesterday on the beach just to the right of where I shot this photo, during my 365 when I visited SB last Spring! I felt like this was a continuation of sorts to that photo.


That being said, with this image, I'm starting a period of experimentation with my work to grow and try new things. I'm not sure how long it will last, but my hope is to create new, engaging pieces while expanding and further developing my style. I'm excited to get started, because watching Sam get buffeted by sand was WAY too much fun! :)
