Crewman in the Rigging

Uploaded: April 09, 2005


Taken in Sitka, Alaska as crews were securing their fishing boats for the night after a day at sea.

I metered off the sky to assure the color of the sunset would be maintained in the photo - no filters were used. "Auto level" and "auto contrast" were the only Photoshop manipulations used. f/13, 1/125 sec, ISO 400, zoom lens at 330mm, tripod used. ("Rule of thirds" was followed for placement of the peson as the subject of the picture).

Did You Know?

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.


The following truth is one of the core philosophies of BetterPhoto:

I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
I do, I understand.
