As most photographers know there are a few key shots to be had in the south east of the UK.
Everyone knows that West Pier in Brighton Photography is one of them. It’s iconic and if you get there at tyhe right time with your camera and tripod you can get some amazing shots using some known effects and techniques.
I’ve always wanted to get down the coast to get this iconic shot but never could scrape myself out of bed early enough…until today.
The weather yesterday was stormy and there was a slight calm in the air. However to get the smooth motion look across the sea we needed a bit of movement and a long shutter speed.
I popped up the tripod, added a 8stop ND filter and a graduated colour filter over the top. Then came the technical adjustments in camera to get that smooth look and an HDR effect.
I’m really happy with the outcome and all the effort was worth it.
Next stop will be Tower Bridge in London or the Seven Sisters in Kent, we’ll see!
If you’d like a digital high resoultion copy of the shot to print yourself, please get in contact, they are just £25 each and you can enlarge as big as you like.
