For today’s post we go back to Martha’s Vineyard once again. This is Edgartown Light, which I’ve shot countless times before. One of the great things about this lighthouse is that it’s ok to shoot it countless times because it provides so many angles, compositions, points of view, etc. You can shoot it tight, or use the many opportunities to create a wide angle shot with a foreground interest. Or you can try some combination of these or anything else that works for you. For this particular shot, I chose a mid-range shot using the water and the sky to frame the lighthouse. The smooth streak in the middle of the water is the current flowing through from the other side of the jetty. Although the horizon is smack dab in the middle of the shot, I still think it works.
