While I was in Mexico for a week I became slightly obsessed with standing out on a rock wall that jutted out into the ocean near our resort’s beach and taking pictures of the splashes created when the waves hit the rocks. This obsession resulted in me coming home with over 500 “splash pictures.” These ones are some of my favorites. It was really hard to pick favorites.
At the end of my last post about my trip to Mexico I promised to post some of my photography from the trip. Well I finally finished sorting through the hundreds of pictures I took and am ready to post some!
I learned a couple of neat techniques from Greg Johnson, the Tornado Hunter, who taught the photography workshops during the trip. During the sunset shoots I learned how to give the waves and water a soft, fuzzy effect which looks super pretty. I also learned how to shoot pictures of the stars which I absolutely loved!
All my photos were shot on my Nikon D5300 with the standard 16-35mm lens that came with it.
This was the first time that I played with these techniques and settings on my camera so I obviously have room for improvement but I’m so glad that I got to try these out for the first time by the ocean in Mexico!

The last week has been a little rough so I decided to cheer myself up by posting what is quickly becoming my favorite thing to shoot: waterscapes! I feel instantly calmer, happier, and more myself when I am on or near the water. I can’t really explain it but I love being near the ocean or on a boat fishing with my dad in the summer.
Some of these are not super great, some were taken on my phone, and some I am pretty happy with.
