North Tinian, Looking Towards Saipan

Tinian Blow Hole (at night), Tinian. This picture was a long exposure as you can tell by the movement of the clouds and the stars in the horizon. You can see the island of Saipan in the distance, with all the lights and what not taking view. Ancient coral outcrop line the edge of Tinian bordering the dynamic yet majestic ocean to create a contrast of textures.

Suicide Cliff, Tinian

Suicide Cliff, Tinian

Suicide Cliff, Tinian. When the Americans were on the verge of winning the Battle of Saipan, or the Battle of the Northern Mariana Islands, the Japanese forces chose to take their lives instead of surrender to the Americans. This specific cliff was where the Japanese would jump into the big blue ocean in the attempt to take their lives. This photo was taken at night, as you can see the stars in the horizon.

Long exposure shots are very interesting to take. It takes a lot of patience to learn how to adjust the settings of the camera to take the shot that you want. Some shots may be overexposed (too bright), and some underexposed(too dark). It definitely requires a lot of practice to truly master the art of long exposure photography. As for me, I am only scratching the surface…

I was hanging out with some friends from Tinian at this place called YCC having a few brews. It was literally 25ft away from the ocean. The moon was out so I whipped out my set up and took a few long exposures. The first picture was taken looking at Aguigan, also known as Goat Island. This island can be seen from the highest peak on the island of Saipan. It’s also a great destination for all types of fishing. The second picture looks North of YCC, which looks onto the festival grounds of Tinian’s Pika Fest.
