A few days ago I was on a break, in the New Forest area in Hampshire, being close to the coast it gave the opportunity to do something a little different. Mark Cornick uses a technique of long exposure and no tripod to create almost painterly-like images of coast during sunrise and sunsets.
I gave it a try and here are my attempts
They’re not bad…are they?
A lovely collection of images were made from photo shoot on Brighton beach with superb model Emma. The Sun presented very harsh lighting situations and the tide being out meant some restriction on poses needed to avoid or limit the seaweed in the compositions. I do have one or two others, but these were my favourites of the day.
I’ve always like this image, taken on the beach one early morning when a beach walker was passing by. He seemed to have the problems of the world on his shoulders, dragging his feet through the sand with each stride and head hung down for the weight. Don’t get me wrong, he could have had just one too many beers the night before.
I thought I’d present with a grudge filter, alter the mood of the picture.
