Bognor Pier Landscape Photography

A cloudy and cold start at Bognor Regis for some landscape photography of the pier. No sunrise this time unfortunately, (not that I need one every time) but a long wait to see if the sun would come in through the clouds, which it did, a little…

Whilst waiting for the right kind of light, I thought I’d kick things off with a long exposure using the Big Stopper filter to slow the exposure down to eight minutes. During this exposure, the clouds started to break a little to add a bit of light. I reshot the image below using a regular exposure of around 1/2 a second. I’m not sure which I prefer.

A couple of experiments with composition in these two photographs. Had a little play with symmetry below, and tried to get something using the pier and the light but Bognor’s pier is quite short, so I din’t think this really did it any justice.

My final shot of this landscape photography shoot was down on the beach, right at the shoreline. I used a low angle to try and capture the waves lapping at the shore with a slow shutter in the foreground without getting the camera wet! I liked the subtle colours in the sky of this shot, but this was the best light I was going to get and I must say, I’ve taken better photographs. Not every landscape shoot is amazing, even when your job as a landscape photographer can be really fun. Everyone has their off days, but mine are usually down to the weather more than anything!
