Hello everyone. Welcome to my tenth installments of my creative world that I call Resonance Reflection Photography. My name is Marcel Comeau, and I'm a landscape photographer based in Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. Each week I post my work online for the world to see and enjoy. This week's photo was taken out in Nanaimo in Neck Point Park. I happen to be in the area early in the morning, and I couldn't have asked for ideal sunrise weather. Not a cloud was in sight, there was no wind, and the temperature was perfect. I came in before the sun started showing over the horizon, so it gave me a moment to take in the quiet atmosphere and reflect on the traffic that was going in my head. I try to plan as much as possible when it comes to creating new content. I make an effort to have all my gear clean, charged, and ready to be used. I bring various types of clothes and food just so I'm prepared to take on an opportunity when it arises. I look up the weather forecast to help figure out what type of day I'll work in. Pre-planning is essential, but when everything is all staged and ready to go, the creative process from that point on is all on the fly. I have a general idea of what I want to film and shoot throughout the day, but I try my very best to let the moments become the director and curator of what ends up being the final product. Let your creative juices flow when you step up to a new project. Explore your mental landscape and see what potential inspiration can come out. The results can surprise you. As I was finishing my thoughts on this subject, I noticed the warm glow of the morning sunrise coming over the horizon. I got my camera gear ready, and let the moment guide me to capture that beauty that was in front of me. Thank you so much for taking the time to listen to me, and I hope to hear from you soon. Take care.
