RELOAD - 07 JAN 2017
"I shot this at a nude beach on Fire Island, NY, USA. Unsurprisingly, I was the youngest person there, so I think people were curious as to what exactly I was doing there. I had already really wanted to go to the beach, and I figured if I went to a nude beach it would be a good opportunity to shoot. This was also my very first time at a nude beach. I burn really easily, so I applied SPF 100 sunblock before I shot this. However, you can tell in the photos that the sun had already gotten to me on my walk over to the beach, so I've got a slight tan on my chest in the pictures. Shooting this was a bit tricky, because the water would occasionally suddenly come up really far, and at one point prior to shooting, everything I had laid out (my tote bag, clothes, towels) got completely soaked. So I had to be aware of the water at all times so that my tripod and camera wouldn't get destroyed. It was also a bit tricky making sure that sand didn't get in the camera, since wind kept blowing it upwards and because I was obviously covered all over in sand. I also had to wait for people to finish walking by so that I could continue taking pictures. Luckily the water was super cold, so no one went frolicking in the water behind me."
