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!
Hello me again,
This is going back to the 31st of October this year. I shot a wedding in Taunton in Somerset. Church and reception being on the grounds of Taunton School, a private school with some amazing grounds!
With bridal prep at a local hotel, the bride arrived on a horse drawn carrige. The church its self was incredibly dark, with the obvious no flash rule it made life tricker than it could have been. really had to push the cameras to the limit on the ISO speed, with the 1ds having to be maxed out at 3200. This still only gave me a speed of 1/25th at best at F/4. So to those who know you’ll see just how dark it was. Still some amazing shots of course, the inside was stunning!
And heres a few images of the rest of the day.
Thanks for Looking
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

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.

A Minimal Long Exposure from the Dorset Coast. This is hard to belive but this was Taken in the middle of the Level 3 heatwave we have had recently, A 28 Degree Celsius Day this Was. By about mid afternoon we had a Thick Sea fog on our shores.
I New it would make great Minimal monochrome images, So I new I had to make the Trip Out. Worth it? I think So Got this Simple mono and some other great images to come soon as well.
I would Really Appreciate any shares on FB or Tweets about my Post, Im really Working hard to Get my self out there and noticed and any help will go a long way.

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.
A Minimal Long exposure of a Boat Jetty.
A private boat jetty in Poole Harbour, Dorset, This was at the end of a garden of a large house. It made a great subject for Black and white.
This is the Reason why I love Black and white images, This was shot on a Bright and sunny day, with white Puffy Clouds, I think the transformation into Black and white has given the image a completely different mood, Transforming a Bright and sunny day into a Dark and Moody Scene.
I feel The majority of my Black and white work reflects the same transformation. Changing scenes completely and Adding something special to the Everyday.
