Seashell Photography – Sharing Your Seashells

Seashell Photography – Sharing Your Seashells

“Seashells from the seashore” were one of my favorite things when I was a kid!  Living in Florida made it somewhat easy.  We did not live at the beach but fairly close to it.  We spent some vacations at the beach, I remember Sanibel Island, well, and one of our neighborhood friend’s dad took us to the beach to look for shells quite a bit.  Sitting at the beach, or anywhere, was never my thing.  Gathering seashells kept me busy when at the beach as a kid, today it is all about photography and in particular seashell photography.  My shell collection

Fort De Soto Park in Tierra Verde, Pinellas County, Florida is one of Florida’s best beaches but also a great place for fishing, camping, kayaking, boating & birding!  And the scenery is not bad, either.  There is even an old historic fort to wander through.

I joined the others in a local meetup group at Safety Harbor Spa & Marina for a sunset shoot.   Since the sun was basically behind us the lighting was on what we were shooting rather than using the sun as part of the subject matter.   There were a lot of clouds..
