So, good people, summer is just round the corner, the net effect is far fewer suitable locations for sunsets etc on the Dorset coast, or maybe more like less sociable times . So onto my favourite pastime during the summer season, shooting some people! here's a few recent victims of being Shot on Sight. Want to be a victim just shoot me a mail, it doesn't hurt, much!
The lovely Sam came by to the studio session I had recently, she wanted some Yoga shots done. At the end of the session I asked if she would kindly sit for a head shot for me to test the lighting set up for my next shoot. Doesn't she look radiant.
Another Cornwall shot people. driving back from another location St Michaels was looking rather nice, I waited for over an hour in bitterly cold wind, to see if a shaft of light would illuminate the mount, alas it didn't. Still I like the image anyway hope you do to.
Heres the second photo I would like to share from Cornwall '15. Shot at the beach at Mousehole near Penzance, hours before our drive home. This shot features the only sizable cloud we saw during the trip, which happened to break perfectly and was heading straight at us. So lucky... times like this I cant help breaking out the 10 stop nd filter hope you like it.
Last week I got back down to Cornwall for a few days away. Lee Bowden, a good friend accompanied me on our little adventure. We had a pretty long list of locations to hit, some of which I was keen to re-shoot after last years visit was a complete washout.
To start off with a splash, here's a sunset shot of Godrevy Lighthouse. To get this image, I literally had to fight my way through a crowd of photography tourists, so I am by no means the only person with this shot but I like it.
New Shoot on Sight website released yesterday, new site, host and some images not posted before, take a look when you have time, let me know what you think.
Lyme Cob, an eventful morning, I met two really nice pro photographers that day, the first guy (who was on my left) tripod complete with camera blew over in the wind, it smashed his lens hood and damaged a filter, no worries though it was only a Nikon. The other guy was to my right was using a rather mouth watering phase one digital back, camera lens and digital back totalled a massive £17.5K (he held onto his tripod in the wind lol)
A while back I figured it was about time I had a shot of the twin sails bridge so after waiting for the tide, sunrise angle, sunrise time, bridge lift time, weather and most importantly actually being able to get out with the camera to all coincide, I captured this shot this morning of Poole's new'ish iconic bridge. Hope you enjoy.
