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!
This was a wedding shot back in September of this year. A Really fantastic couple who both like the camera. Which is always a Bonus!
I won’t bore you with to many words for this one, But it was a wedding on Portland again, with the church on Easton Square being where the ceremony took place. This is a really lovely church, big very bright and built from portland stone which with its light colours makes for great images.
This last picture was great, We went up to portland bill for the pictures of hannah and chris. And unknown to us it was national speak like a pirate day! So these rather friendly pirates from the Portland Bill visitors centre came and did some pictures with us
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
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
another from a Trip to Kimmeridge bay, Dorset the other day, A long Exposure of the Clavells Pier that Sits under the Tower there. A great subject for photographers, with the smooth rocks and graphic lines that the pier produces, and always looks great in Black and White.
Again Time is Getting busy, A lot going on this month, Visiting a Gallery to asses some space for my work and decide if i want to rent a wall or be charged commission. Gallery is in Weymouths Brewers Quay so a great location and a great Business Prospect. A couple of photoshoots booked before christmas and a Craft fayre in mid december as well, so plenty to keep me busy.
Will update at the weekend following the gallery visit and hopefully all goes well.
Dont forget to order your print in time for x mas too! come see me at http://www.danbristowphotography.com
Were Getting Battered Here in Dorset. Storm force winds and the threat of hurricane force winds! Means one thing rough Seas, Great for Photographs but very Dangerous! Reported that a Photographer may have lost his life down Lyme Regis last night while shooting the Storm. So Saftey is a must, Respect is the thing the sea needs the most, Very unpredictable at times.
This was shot on a set of steps well away from the cobb wall where the light want the best, with the wind whipping straight into this little cove, it made a great dramatic sea, Converted into black and white to enhance the texture of the sea.
Unfortunately the Bad weather didn’t Stop the Local council Parking attendants working, Who Gave me a nice note of Praise for not having a ticket, And have asked for £60 towards what i can presume is their christmas party fund. Still more than worth it though, Getting out and Getting these shots I feel is priceless.
