A bleak Weymouth Day

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.

Dorset Landscape Photography: S A V I O U R II

Hi all

 

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

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.

This was shot from the Stone pier in weymouth Dorset, Looking over the edge using the railings and the bench as the minimal focal point, With a Boat passing by on the right, Made a good balance. Converted into monochrome using Silver effex, I wanted to keep the image fairly light, so Didn’t over process the clouds, and creating a Bright Spot in the center it draws the eye in and adds the depth to the image.

This is the Famous remains of the Old Pier at Swanage in Dorset. This Has become a mecca for all Long exposure photographers, with its simple composition, interesting wood structure and slight sweeping shape. It makes a great LE subject.

With so many other photographers shooting this pier images can become a bit similar, but here is my take on the well shot landmark.

Taken on a Very cloudy and over cast Day, Perfect conditions for Swannage. Using a 10 stop ND filter the exposure ran into several minutes, simplifying the scene, smoothing the sea and increasing the contrast in the scene.

Swanage is a Great Place to visit and shoot, and I would fully recommend it to anyone! With winter being the best time to visit.

I have been very busy this week and will be even busier next week as i’m currently moving house, but I will Keep my blog full with interesting images for you

Thanks for reading

A Black and White Long exposure of a Private Boat jetty, in poole Harbour, Dorset.

Taken on a sunny warm afternoon, the BW conversion adds some much needed drama and mood to the image. This also shows of the wooden structure perfectly. Cropped Square to simplify things.

I love shooting these images, I love it when waiting for long exposures and thinking about the results that I could get Or not as the case may be sometimes.
