This image was shot in my studio loft. The ocean background is a painting I did in acrylic. I put it upright and used a bucket of sand in front of it. The swing was shot in my loft also, but is a different image and Photoshopped it into the existing image. My similar images have been good sellers on my stock sites. This is just a sample of the images you can create in you own studio at home if you do not live near the beach. A shallow depth of field helps in this situation allowing a slight blur in the background. A shallow depth of field would be using a large f stop stuch as 2.8, 3.0 etc. This goes to show you that you do not need to live at the beach or in the mountains to get nature shots. Be creative!
