Another favorite photo of Kyle DeWitt. What I personally love about this photo is that it makes me wonder what the person at the end of the dock is thinking. It gives a ‘sad’ impression, but as you’ll read in Kyle’s explanation, it is quite the opposite.
“The set up was for a landscape shot of the beach, when a couple of folks just jumped on the dock and ran down to the water. They were on their way to catch a plane back to wherever they were from and wanted to say good bye one last time. The thing that’s funny is the edit and the pose makes for a somber shot but that’s the camera playing tricks on the viewer. The reality was they were happy, dancing at the end of the pier, but since it’s a 2 min shot, the motion is smoothed into each other and everything feels still.”
