“Hi Tony & Lizzie

I cannot believe that this last week has sped by so quickly during my first week back at work.

Anyway, I just wanted to thank you for your very excellent tuition last Friday – a most enjoyable and rewarding experience. The pictures we took look amazing – no trouble in downloading them from the DVD.

I am sure that my photography has been ‘spring boarded’ to new levels.

All the best and kind regards.

Tony”

Winter’s on it’s way – Wind’s turned to the North in Aldeburgh

Today’s photo training workshop on the beach in Aldeburgh.
Atmospheric stormy skies are my favourite conditions for our landscape workshops.
Like me and stay in the frame.

Exposure – 1/15 @ f/16 100 ISO 0.9 ND Grad (3 stop)

Off camera flash for that ‘WOW’ factor!

To create this atmospheric portrait capturing the background skies and freezing movement, set the camera to aperture priority, using the exposure compensation feature on your camera. Set this to -1. This will under expose the ambient light by 1 stop allowing the skies to retain detail. However, the boys will be under exposed at this point so I used quantum’s Q flash T5d-R system fired remotely from the left hand side, to light the boys and also help freeze movement.
The Q flash has the power output I need to compete with the sun – but still allows me the freedom to keep up with the kids when they want to go and have fun.

Exposure – 1/250 @ f/16 400 ISO

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!
