Surrounded By Sand by caseymac

Somehow I’ve lived in Colorado for over 4 years and have never made it to check out the Great Sand Dunes. Inspired by social network posts from three photographers who’s work I greatly respect, I decided to finally venture down to check it out myself.

Knowing that light creates nice shadows in the afternoon, I wanted to capture a high contrast image in black and white. I figured the difficult part, though, would be getting a hiker into the frame to show a sense of scale. After setting up my composition and waiting for a few minutes for someone to walk through, I decided to take things into my own hands. I plugged in my timer remote to my 1DX and set up a timelapse to capture 1 shot every 3 seconds and walked up the hill myself. The nice contrasting spot is 200-300 yards away from my camera. The best part about using myself as a model is I know exactly what body position I’m looking to get and I don’t get annoyed when a photographer asks me to do it over and over until it’s right 🙂
