46.6 Degrees

For me this photo sums up a hot day at the beach, it was hot, 46.6 degrees, an Adelaide record. To get the hazy, grainy look I had some pretty unusual settings. The slightly offset aspect of the image also ads to the visual rhetoric I was trying to achieve.

I shot this at F1.2 (I had to use an ND filter to get such a large aperture in the bright sun). Using F1.2 and shooting directly into the sun gives the image a real dreamy, almost grainy feel. I think it’s the perfect visual rhetoric for this image. I also shot on a slight angle, I think this ads to the candid, holiday feel I was trying to achieve.
