This image here was shot while in london shooting beer gardens for a client.
I had just finished shooting at the Fellow in Kings cross when walking back to the car and came across this scene, too good to miss I set up the tripod and shot just one frame.
I love london at night and its one I still want to shoot properly, perhaps soon Ill be able to get out and fill up on city scenes.
Its been a very long time since my last landscape post, but here is a mono long exposure shot while working on my uni projects again
Its by no means anything special but its one of a few I’m working on editing at the moment
Available as a print, as always, and any feedback welcome
I shot this small series while shooting for a uni project I was working on.
my Aim was to show the bleak reality of a coastal town out of tourist season. A contrast from the busy beaches and bustling shops. To shoot this one i decided to use my new lens baby muse, and limit it to just a f5.6 aperture. This is a very soft lens and gave itself well to the concept i had. the images have then been edited in LR to reflect a moody and grainy scene, with dark blacks and lots of film grain added.
I think it works Really well, this here is a small selection of what was shot on the day, I may as time goes on release more, or i may not. Who knows.
I may also revisit in the summer with the same kit and same idea but shoot weymouth at its busiest and compare the two.
And thats it, I hope you have enjoyed looking at these, Any prints or questions please ask!
Never realised I hadn’t shared this image with you all! Shot back in September when I had a day off from the day job.
Having moved house recently (might I add never in wedding season again!) I’m within walking distance of the Nothe Fort area of Weymouth.
The day was very overcast with broken clouds, the sort I love for Long exposure work. The wind started off seeming promising as the clouds were moving quickly, so would create some great shapes. However it was probably gusting 40mph! not great for keeping a camera shake free for 2min plus!.
Any images I had shot at the end of the pier where there is a large metal viewpoint with a great spiral staircase, were completely unusable due to the vibrations through the camera being buffeted by the gusts.
So back up plan in place, I retreated to the base of the pier sheltered by the fort itself. Where there is a Life Buoy attached to the railings. I’ve shot similar LE’s before.
Shot on the Canon 5dMKii, 17-40 @20mm, ISO 50, F/14, 99 seconds
Available as a print or canvas
Whilst organising my Hard drive at the weekend, i came across a few images that i have pulled out for editing.
This being one of them, back in 2012 spring time at Langdon Woods, I have cropped the image to a 16:9 ratio, which helps focus the attention to the lines and the light through the tree’s.
I had it in a Desaturated colour first, but then went full mono on it, and darkened up the shadows slightly,
Very moody. Got a few ideas for shoots like this coming up, with a twist.
A Trip to Dartmoor back in 2013. A moody long exposure shot at the top of bentor, Its never been uploaded and took me ages to decide on the edit for it. So its sat unseen long enough now.
Would love to get back to dartmoor soon, such a beautiful place even if the weathers bad.
The Last one from the Sunrise at Ringstead bay recently,
I just loved the pre light blues in this, coupled with the soft oranges of the sunrise, I also made this a long exposure as it worked better with the flatter sea.
My first Mono image in a long time, From a recent sunrise.
This was a 4 minute exposure using my 10 stop, Was a wonderful sunrise, and just as it was over the clouds came over and started to rain while waiting for this image to expose.
Prints are available
Its been a Long time since my last sunrise shoot, after attempting this last week and finding my batteries had not charged. I knew this weekend i had to take another crack at it.
So an early alarm and a rather hair raising drive down the steep hill on sheet ice (just as fun on the way up). The conditions were great, scattered cloud and a decent tide. So i ended up with the following image, capturing the sun as it comes over the horizon.
There will be some more to follow, once I get around to editing them.
Not had a landscape shoot for some time, and this i am afraid isn’t a new one either, A shoot back earlier in the year at kimmeridge bay, A Very cloudy and over cast sunset, so next to no colour. Perfect for some long exposures.
Here the big ledge is just being covered by the high tide, creating a very unique line and shapes,
Might Get out soon for some landscapes again soon, If time allows
