It’s almost impossible to have a flat sea. I believe the proper expression is flat calm or dead calm – not a ripple to be seen. I took advantage of this anomaly to make a very simple photograph.
I came up with a concept 20 years ago of standardization and simplification or KISS (Keep it Simple Stupid.) I had an opportunity to study art in Japan and you find out that less is more. This was not an assignment. This was just for me.
The majority of my photo life has been one deadline after another. Sometimes days, sometimes hours, and occasionally minutes. Approximately once a month, I try to take a half a day off, and kick back with my camera. So Happy Friday. Camera used for the above was a 5D Mark 3, 24-105 F4, tiffen 4x neutral density filter. Boy I miss black and white. Processed in Silver Effects Pro 2.
