Here is a photo of the old Slipway at the back of Appledore. I have had changeable opinions with this photo. One minute I like the processing and the next I don’t. I do however love the texture in the wood. I might revisit this photo one day with a different post processing perspective. Read More
I have a few photos of the old slipway from this night out at Appledore. I decided to post this one because I like the fact that the water is not blurred, even if just to break the trend. I do like blur myself too though I just think this particular image works without it. I love the texture in the wood, and this instance I felt it benefited from black and white processing. This shot was taken while the sun was firmly nestled behind the cloud.
I often try to follow local photographer’s work, sometimes I think it is to gauge myself and other times it is for inspiration. A couple of photos that inspired me recently were by Rob Kendall and Tim Barker. They posted photos of an old slipway that I didn’t know existed. I have often yearned for strong structures to contrast against a dynamic coast, although I now want stronger neutral density filters. I found myself scouring Google maps, looking for the structure that until now had eluded me. I found one but it faces the wrong way, so I spent ages scouring the west facing coastline until I found it. Read More
This is another photograph taken from Appledore. I like the dynamics of this photo, once I look past the boat that is the focus of the image I notice the people on the beach opposite and then the rolling hills that show changing light as the cloud moves overhead. Overall I’m quite happy with this photo.
As the rain showers eased a little I went to Appledore and luckily the sky cleared a bit. It’s the first time I have actually been there with my camera and I was quite pleased to see plenty of potential photographs. I was making my way out to the headland but realised the tide was coming in and knowing how fast it moves I didn’t want to get stranded, although once hoisted into the helicopter I could of made use of the view. 🙂
