Wet Belly Photography

Ocean foam

Sea Bubbles

This last weekend I wanted to do some “wet belly photography” in the meadow near Muir Beach. What makes wet belly photography so fun and interesting is to capture moisture on leaves and insects early in the morning before full sun. This morning there wasn’t any dew because of the warm weather and northeastern winds we’d been having. I had to rethink my quest and ended up at the tideline looking for interesting shots. This is a shot of sea foam taken with a hand held point and shoot camera and worked a bit in Lightroom. The small point and shoot allowed me to get close without a tripod and shoot fast before the next wave came in. This would have be almost impossible with an SLR. The term “wet belly photography” was coined by Ernest Braun in the 1970’s. I was very lucky to have Ernie as a teacher, mentor, and friend starting in about 1984.
