This Island is very seasonal and over the summer months I usually adapt myself in order to keep taking pictures. I've done plenty of sunrise shoots and wandered the quiet beaches with a model, camera gear and a thermos of coffee. (Having said that it's quiet at that time of day, you wouldn't believe how many times I've seen another photographer in the distance taking shots of the rising Sun)! Working at sunrise is good for many reasons including my outdoor nude photography work as it is rather opportunistic and the chances of getting any shots during the peak hours are few and far between when the 'grockles' are here.
This year's sunrise shoots have slowed down a bit as I've switched my body clock slightly in favour of the later hours and gotten caught up in the whole evening / night time photography thing. I've been seeking out more noise and bustle to go into my shots, moving temporarily away from photographing people to explore landscapes and other avenues.
This week has been an adventure in slowing down time through long exposures and looking for areas of traffic to create interesting light streaks taking me for walks in the countryside, along the beach and in more urban areas of The Island.
