Welcome Back to my blog. Its been a while since my last post. But just like in photography, quality is better than quantity.
On my last post I left off having to make a choice between creating a body of work with landscapes or with still life for the "level Up " program I'm on this year. I have decided to go with Landscapes.
I really enjoy photographing Landscapes and find them the most rewarding to photograph. I get to watch more sunrises and sunsets than I normally would, even if I don't always get " The Shot". The peacefulness and stillness when I'm out there is invigorating and there's nothing like seeing the dawn of a new day.
Below is one of the photos I took at sunrise from Blouberg beach. My plan was to do a long exposure which makes the water look milky and softer. My exposure wasn't quite long enough so I didn't quite get the desired effect. The water was also not actually moving fast enough. None the less the I was reasonably happy with this photo.
I met another photographer, Alan Baxter, that morning on the beach. We introduced ourselves and he remembered my name from something I posted on a Facebook group once and. We chatted a bit and it was great to meet him. He photographs a lot from Blouberg beach and I learnt that he has an exhibition coming up soon. I'm hoping for him that its a great success.
Not only does landscape photography allow you to enjoy some awesome views you sometimes get to meet some cool people too.
Here is another photo from that morning looking back from the beach. The colours in the sky were really lovely that morning.
Since then I have been out again to try get a photo overlooking Table Bay and Cape Town City. While it was an improvement on a previous shoot , I'm still looking for the right shot. I'll share that with you on my next post.
Till next time, happy snapping
