Let’s slow thing’s down – Why not try photographing in low light?

If you want to create a sense of movement in your image, use a tripod and set the camera to manual. Try experimenting with exposures slower than 30 seconds to achieve this ‘mysterious’ effect. This was created by 3 or 4 waves moving back and forth along the shore. The camera has also captured that ice blue white balance, without the need for any filters.
Have fun, stay safe near water, it’s expensive if your kit gets a soaking!

Tony Pick is one of the UK’s leading portrait photographers with an international client base. He runs his successful ‘Tony Pick Photography’ business from his fine art gallery in the beautiful seaside town of Aldeburgh, Suffolk. The business has grown from it’s original beach hut location to it’s current high street gallery and now includes a whole range of services including Lifestyle Portraits, Landscape & Seascape Fine Art, Photo Training Workshops and Creative Weddings. Having left his corporate photography career behind him 13 years ago, he moved, with his wife Lizzie and family to Suffolk with the intention of leading a quieter life. He has since gained a reputation for the outstanding quality of his work. Tony has also built up an enviable client list for his ‘Tony Pick Lifestyle Portraits’ with clients coming from all over the world to invest in a location portrait shoot. He also runs his very successful ‘Tony Pick Photography Training Workshop’ days. These workshops are all bespoke where delegates can choose from a variety of subjects, landscapes, seascapes, lifestyle portraits, wildlife, post production etc. Tony’s passionate about photography and his business and strives to inspire others to ignite their passion for photography. The landscapes and seascapes which drew him to the area are still a huge inspiration to Tony who is never happier than when he is on the beach with his camera either on his own or inspiring others. Print sales are available here. “If you’re passionate about photography and are looking for some inspiration, you are very welcome to visit us at the gallery where we are sure you will find some!” p.s. he is also crazy about sea-swim-bike-run-tri!
