Dawn on the Water
My favorite time on the water with lobstermen is the first couple of hours of the day
Lobstering in Gloucester, Mass.
A couple of weekends ago I was in Gloucester, Mass. looking for pictures for The Lobstering Life book I am working on. The one picture I really want is one showing a lobster being pulled out of the trap when it first comes out of the water. There are two ways this can be done- with a very wide angle lens hovering right over the trap on the boat or with a longer telephoto lens from off the boat on another boat. The ideal to either shot is capturing the exact moment when the person, lobster and trap are in the perfect position. The trick is that the perfect moment seldom occurs and when it does seldom seems to happen in nice light
