I located this cool looking stump on the beach about a month ago, and have intended to photograph it for some time now. I can see myself returning to this spot and trying different compositions in varying light. This was from last night at about 10:15.
Since the sun was off the driftwood, I played around with some off camera flash. It probably would have been better with two flashes, but I just had one with me. This was with my 24-105mm lens set at 32, with my aperture set at the smallest opening of f/22 to maximize the depth of field. Shutter speed was 1/5 of a second. I had to bump the ISO up to 400 to increase the strength of the flash which I had manually set to full strength (1:1). I hand held the flash off to the left of the driftwood.
