It’s been a busy day in my world and I didn’t get as much time to chase the shots I wanted for this assignment.
My initial thoughts were based around water cascading over a coastal waterfall on the North Cornwall coast. Simple really; set up camera on tripod, take long exposure and bingo nice blurred water in motion shot. . . er well, not quite! Guess who not only forgot the tripod, but also only took a compact camera that wouldn’t go below 1/30th of a second shutter speed, Doh!
Actually, I got a couple of reasonable shots, but nowhere near what I had in mind.
On returning to Dookes H.Q. later in the day, I picked up a tripod, my trusty Nikon D80 and headed out to grab the fading evening light. I had an idea.
Cornwall is a pretty breezy part of the world, we get buffeted by the North Atlantic winds for most of the year and in recent times we have seen a sharp rise in the number of wind farms and turbines being built. These structures have the ability to sharply divide opinion amongst many people. For the record, I like them. I like the engineering, the look of them and can spend hours being almost hypnotised by their regal action.
So let’s have a play with the camera!
This is what I call a “normal” shot.
Now lets put some “motion” into the shot!
As the light began to slip away, I couldn’t resist a more ‘arty’ shot from a different angle, but still with movement in the moment.
I’ve got to say, I enjoyed grabbing these photographs and I hope you like them too.
Catch you soon.
Just for the record, no photo-shopping here, it was all done with the camera!
