Cornwall Photographer: Cornwall Holiday Photography (Beach Fashion / Surf Girl) – Dasha Part II
Posted on August 23, 2012
If you’re looking for a Cornwall photographer or would like holiday lifestyle photography at any UK / worldwide holiday destination, then you may be interested in this blog post. This is the second part of a fashion influenced beach and surf girl photoshoot with Dasha. To read about the first part of this Cornwall beach photoshoot click here.
As well as being a great opportunity, beaches also present a challenging environment for photography. The majority of people will only venture to beaches in the Summer, and on occasions in the UK when it’s also hot and sunny, this means harsh lighting conditions. Harsh lighting conditions aren’t agreeable with the automatic exposures that most users of digital cameras shoot with. Using digital cameras around sand and sea water also presents it’s own risks with regards to the safety/longevity of their camera. The weather sealing on my professional grade equipment has kept it from harm so far. The landscape of the beach environment is constantly changing with high/low tides and human traffic affecting the condition of the sand or creating distractions in the frame. For a beach photoshoot, the photographer needs to plan carefully and/or be flexible enough to adopt new strategies at short notice. With a professional photographer taking care of all of these issues, you’re free to relax and enjoy the shoot.
The surfboard and wet-suit in the images were from the ‘Down the Line’ surf shop in Hayle. Down the Line are stockists of surfboards, wetsuits and surf clothing. If you’re planning a holiday in Cornwall, you may like to pay them a visit, or if you’re not in the area you can order online. Click here to open the ‘Down the Line’ web-site in a new window/tab.
Below are a selection of images from the shoot. Feel free to leave comments at the end.
