This week’s vlog I find myself wandering around Blackpool looking for compositions. The biggest problem is, there is just too many to choose from! Let’s shoot a seascape, but which Pier do I choose? The North Pier, the South, or what about the Central Pier? Decisions, decisions!

I shot the North Pier followed by a couple of shots of the Central Pier. I had a little spare time so I grabbed a HDR shot under the Central Pier too.

My preference was the earlier shots I grabbed when the tide was in. Personally, I prefer the black and white picture of the North Pier. That’s the one where the sea was all the way in and it covered the Pier’s feet. It was actually the first shot I took, although I didn’t edit the video that way.

Blackpool is just brilliant for Landscape Photography.

The black and white image above of the North Pier at Blackpool is my favourite from the set.  I just like the simplicity of it. I sea was so calm the is a distinct lack of white waves appearing around the base of each Pier leg. The moody sky enhances the ghostly appearance of the quiet, closed, out of season pier too. I just love it. Let me know which one you like and why, in the comments box below.

A close second favourite of mine. It’s a lovely shot. My original intention was to shot this when the Ferris wheel was in operation. In a weird way, I’m glad it wasn’t working that day. This stillness just adds to the mood of the shot. Again just like the shots above the 4-minute exposure renders that sea as glass. I know long exposures aren’t everyone’s cup of tea but I love them. This pictures just illustrates the reasons why too!

The above shot was taken at ISO 800. This is unknown territory for most Landscape Photographers. I’m happy to venture into the nether regions of high ISO’s for my art. All cameras produce noise at such a high ISOs but cleaning images up are just a technique you simply have to learn.
