This is one of two shots I'll be posting of this flip-flop that I found on Fleetwood beach a few weeks ago, and one of my personal favourites in recent months. I can't really explain why, but there's just something about this type of shot that I find really satisfying, in terms of both shooting and post-production.

This is now also a well travelled flip-flop as I have it with me in Seattle to use as a prop during the first shooting session of my Dramatic Post-Production workshop I'm presenting for Creative Live. If you haven't checked it out yet, it starts at 9am (PST) tomorrow, and runs through till around 4pm on Sunday. Tomorrow morning we're going to be working through/discussing a variety of topics but in the afternoon we're going to have a couple of hours to shoot, using a variety of props that the students will be brining along, some that have been provided by Creative Live, and my flip-flop from Fleetwood beach. I'm not sure what we're going to come up, but it should be fun :)

Anyway, take a look at the following link, and if you have some spare time over the weekend, sign up.


On a related note: we're offering a 20% discount on the first year’s payment of an annual subscription to our photography and post-production tutorials for the duration of my Creative Live workshop. So if you've been thinking of signing up, now would be a great time to do it :)

Fabulous shot. Love the processing, too.

A 'classic' Chromasia shot if I do say so myself. Lovely clean image in the final processing, did you Topaz for the sand ?
And it's been a while since you've used the 16mm-35mm lens hasn't it ?
