Filming on the Beach

For some time now I have wanted to experiment with the filming capabilities of my camera but every time I'm out, the urge to photograph rather than film takes over!

While out location scouting for a sunrise shoot and experimenting with my new Lensbaby, I thought I would spend a couple of hours messing about to see what I could achieve on the spot and the short film below was the result!

After the first sunrise at Torquay (The Island) I really wated to go back and shoot another sunrise from the far side of the bay. So one morning I made a last minute decision to head back down the coast.

The angle that I wanted to get was much lower down the rock face, closer to the sea level. But wet, slippery ground meant that I wouldn't reach it due to the very steep slope and muddy ground.

Pushing Through

The shot above was my favourite shot from the morning - I love the colour of the water and the way the sun is pushing through the clouds.

Since moving to Devon nearly 5 months ago, I just haven't been able to get enough of the coast - every opportunity I get I head to the beaches and coastal paths but recently, I broke the habbit and finally had my first day out on Dartmoor!

Rock On!

The photograph above was taken at Haytor, a very popular tourist site with (as you can see) an enormous Tor. You can get a good idea of the scale of it with the people stood on the top! Even without climbing the Tor, you can see for miles around and the views are absolutely spectacular.

Rock Around...

It was great to get to see these huge landmarks and it was so different to the Yorkshire Moors - more exploring on Dartmoor is a definite!

The Island

Another recent sunrise - Thatcher's Rock in Torbay.

The Island #2

Normally, I would scout out a location before shooting there but on this occasion I had decided to do a sunrise the evening before due to the weather forecast, so there wasn't really any time to prep!
It was a beautiful sunrise though with some fantastic clouds and I found a few other nearby locations that I will be shooting from in the near future!

Teignmouth Pier

Just before Christmas I did a sunrise shoot on the beach in Teignmouth.
There is something very rewarding about watching the sunrise. The the way the light falls on the world makes everything look so different and its well worth watching.
