Ke'e Beach at the beginning of the Na Pali Coast, Kauai, Hawaii.
A couple of kids playing on Ke’e Beach in Kauai. This beautiful beach is at the beginning of the Na Pali Coast.
This was with my Canon 5D II and 24-105 at 67mm. Exposure was 1/50 of a second, f/10 at iso 500. The aperture of f/10 gave me the depth of field to keep the kids and the background both in focus. I needed to bump the iso to 500 to get enough of a shutter speed to freeze the movement of the kids and the waves. Like in my last post, I used aperture priority – but in this one I actually dialed down the exposure compensation to – 1 stop to keep the waves from being blown out, and the black rocks dark. Goes to show, gotta always check the historgram.
