Sunset Session At Burgau

Facebooktwittermail

Another location ticked off! I was shooting a drone video for my Real Estate venture (FotoSul) on Friday in Burgau and decided to wait until sunset to capture another wish list shot. The weather was fantastic, almost too fantastic as I like a little cloud in my sunset shots but the colours were yet again amazing. I set myself up on the cliff overlooking the village and shot both sunset and dusk. If you like them, they are already available to purchase in the Web Shop

The village of Burgau is a little treasure, although on the South Coast, it is well away from the busy tourist resorts.

Twilight At Praia De Albandeira (March 2018)

Facebooktwittermail

Back in March, I went to take sunset and dusk shots at the fantastic Albandeira Arch. I really wasn’t happy with the results of both the photo and post-editing.

Today, I was going through some old work and once again stumbled across this session. During this year, I have approached my post work differently to achieve my results, so I adopted this new approach and had another go at editing one of the shots from this session. I am now extremely happy with this final image. It just goes to show that you should never just automatically delete photos you are not happy with, it could just be a bad day of creativity, a sort of photographers writers block.

Agitaçao Maritima – Rough Seas!

Facebooktwittermail

Storm Emma has had a big influence on the high tides causing a lot of damage to the beaches, boardwalks and eateries along the Southern Algarve Coastline. The IPMA (Portuguese Met Office) had yellow alert in force for “Agitaçao Maritima” which translates to Rough Seas.

Yesterday I visited two beaches to take a look for myself, and whilst destructive, I wanted to capture the beauty of these rough seas. First was Praia Arrifes near Guia which has 3 rock structures called “Três Penecos”, the high tide was retreating and battering the rocks. The fast moving water was ideal for a long exposure, so with both an ND64 and ND8 combined with a Circular Polariser, I was able to capture this photo.
