Description

The Resort City Virginia Beach is a tourist destination in the summer. The city provides many outdoor activities, sites, attractions, and events for the visitors to enjoy. However, the excitement that embodies Virginia Beach in the summertime is lost after the season is over. The city transforms into an empty and quite version of itself. Devoid of the abundance of tourists, and with many shops closed, the main strip of the Oceanfront comes to resemble a deserted town. I focus on finding compositions that push the idea of a resort city in its unexciting off-season. I find a wide-angle view reinforces the fact that there are not a whole lot of people visiting the area. When I include people in the compositions, I intend to give the viewer a sense of the weather; since the figures are not clad in tank tops and shorts, there is the indication of colder temperatures. In addition, I choose to rely on my skills with my camera to capture what I want and how I want it within the frame of my viewfinder.
