My First Session with Sui (Polly's Cove, Nova Scotia)

While Sui and I went to the coast primarily to work with water, we both decided it would be best to work with the rocks on the shore first, figuring we could head back to the car once she was cooled off from being in the water. After working a bit with rocks by the water, we found this massive rock wall; and within five minutes, I was clambering all around, exploring Sui’s wonderful pose. With careful post-processing, the harsh line on the rocks above her is pretty much invisible.

At the very end of this session, Sui spent some time working in a tidal pool; the water was only warm enough to permit one good pose, so we made the most of it. This was one of the few handheld images I’ve made with the Canon 17mm T/S lens. First I had to focus the image with the live-view (infrared does not focus at the same distance as the visible spectrum); then I composed the two images (shifting the lens between them) that made up the composition, all the while keeping the camera the same distance from Sui.
