Sunset is such a magical time, fantastic for creative photography and artistic portraiture on location in Dorset. The advantage of being a Dorset photographer is easy access to scenery like Sandbanks beach and Poole Harbour, it’s inspirational to photograph and a beautiful backdrop for lifestyle and portrait photography. And I love the sunsets over Poole Harbour, the tide was out on this visit and the sky was almost completely clear of any clouds providing a wonderful mix of colours.
From the beach the view was so clear over the Purbeck hills, Old Harry’s were shining bright as they reflected the evening sun. The shoreline was past the end of the groynes exposing an area that is usually deep under water. As the sun got lower the side lighting became even more dramatic and interesting to photography, changing the atmosphere both on the beach and in the harbour.
Creative photography techniques
The raw camera data captured is very flat and uninteresting, so enhancement and creative post production techniques are required to produce images that are artistic, expressive and beautiful.
I have a real passion for creative photography and documenting beautiful things. Here’s my photo story of our sunset evening walk..
