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

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.
I had to make a Trip up to bournemouth this week to take a look at a wedding venue and the possibility for some shots on the day. I arrived a fair bit early as i had nothing better to do with my Time, So Driving up past the hotel on the seafront, i spot Boscombe pier, the clouds were okay, nothing special, but needed something to do so walked on down there, Shot this image from the top of the Pier, I love the Symmetry and the lines on this pier, Will Definately be re visiting this one in the future.
Its been a Long Time since my last post, Or even last picture, the last month has flown by, have hardly had time to even think about getting out,
So as its miserable here and my Car is curently sat outside on Jacks, here is one from a little while ago.
A Typically Cloudy day at portland bill, gave me the opourtunity to slow things down and get this shot of the Lighthouse.
This will be going in the new Gallery Space i have in Brewers quay, Weymouth. I hope you all like it, And if anyone is near and fancys a look, just as for the Art Asylum, We have a Great Selection of alternate art.
Cheers for know
Landscapes have been few and far between for me recently, So a Blessing that i managed a sunday afternoon out at Kimmeridge Bay, Dorset. A place ive only visited once before, This being my second visit, Wanting to Get another Long Exposure of the big low tide ledge that all Photographers Flock too. A few frames out at the end of it with water lapping around my feet was enough for me to get this shot and then move on.
A Few more will be following this as and when i get around to editing them.
Ive Been crazy busy recently with hardly any time to even consider a blog post. The last few weeks have been going by to quickly. With plenty of Photoshoots and editing, with little time for landscapes, I managed to get out to one of the old haunts, this Being portland bill in dorset. With a typically moody evening again (Thank you England) arriving only 20 minutes before sunset. Again all of a rush. managed to catch this long exposure looking back over the lighthouse from the base of pulpit rock.
This being the first time i’ve properly used my new 10 stop filter, Not to disappointed with the results and will continue to test as i get time. ( I should be so Lucky )
I Will Try to Get more Done soon, A Few more Photoshoots, Craft Fayres and hopefully a landscape or two in that time.
A Wet And Miserable Sunrise At Portland Bill Yesterday, After the Planned Corfe Mist shoot Was rained off, Headed Here before work, De saturated the Image and increased contrast to add to the cold and Moody feel
A Previous Shoot At Badbury Rings, Dorset, Setting sun breaks through the Storm Clouds. Creating some great light, A Footpath and a Square Crop complete the image.
