It you're an avid photographer like me or just someone with an interest in capturing the beauty around you, exploring local gems is a must and something I do to re inspire me which helps me with my photography business.
Hengistbury Head Beach is a must.......
It lies at the most eastern end of an 9.5 mile continuous strip of golden beached that runs from SouthBanks via Bournemouth and Boscombe. During my recent visit armed with my new Sony mirrorless digital camera I was compelled to capture the essence of this picturesque location. Also a surfers paradise.
On a DSLR camera and never putting it on auto, I can manipulate the camera aperture and exposure with the interplay of light and shadow to control depth of field and produce the images that I was looking for. Along with the rule of thirds I can create the stunning visuals that I wanted. It doesn't have to be a beautiful day these photograph were taken at sunrise in January.
This experience serves as a reminder that relying on automatic settings can limit your creativity. Taking time to understand your cameras settings open up a world of possibilities. I encourage fellow photograph enthusiasts to experiment with their controls. Hengistbury Head provided the perfect back drop for this creative exploration of my local surroundings, can you do the same too?
