So I know I have not written too many posts regarding my landscape work but here is a swift update as to what and where i have been shooting. (with a few examples). I’ve recently updated some of my filters to incorporate more Lee filters, specifically the medium grad ND set as well as the Super stopper (which cuts out 15 stops of light without casing undue colour shifts). Ive been to Wales, Yorkshire, Mallorca and Cornwall lately and my kit has obviously travelled with me. below is a few examples of recent work, more can be seen on my website which is always being updated. Amongst one of the recent changes is is a link to buy my prints, which i am happy to say is going well. I won’t give you the sales pitch, so if you would like a print of mine that isn’t on the list, then email me (firstname.lastname@example.org ) the image you like and i will add it in and you can purchase it, sisal after 2-3 business days. Link to print section is here ( print sales )
Anyway, back to the matter in hand. Attached are some recent images, more can be seen here ( Landscapes )
Image 1: Sennen at Sunset.
This was shot on the clips overlooking Sennen Cove. The heather was in full bloom and literally covered the cliffs with a rich, deep purple colour which lit up with the warmth of the setting sun behind it. I used my Lee Hard Grad 0.9 ND here, to bring back the sky.
Image 2: Pembrokeshire estuary at sunset.
I spent a week on the Pembrokeshire coast in October of this year. the weather was shocking, but a few nights the clouds cleared and i was able to get out and take some landscapes. This was taken on the Atlantic Ocean estuary, a very peaceful and remote part of Pembrokeshire. Again, i used a 0.9 Hard grad ND filter from Lee Filters to balance sky and horizon.
Image 3. Malham Cove.
A very popular location for landscape work. This Yorkshire landmark is stunning so you can see why photographers flock there. It was a relatively stormy day which added a lot of interest to the sky. I used my 0.6 Hard Grad ND for the sky here to darken it slightly to add more mood to the shot. In all these images I used my canon 5Dsr and my Zeiss f2.8 21mm Distagon Lens, which is really my go-to lens for landscape work (wide angle use anyway). it really is a beautifully shape lens. Looking at getting the wider version soon, 18mm I believe.
