This Google search produced the above images. I noted down what I Saw in my notepad and then filtered them down to 10 things I saw in the photos. Then I looked at what must be in my shots to give the same effect but in a different way. Leaving the following. (Green must be in the shot. Red use the opposite).
All these shots look like holiday adverts. Almost like the empty roads in car marketing. I wanted to show the place in a great way but not by showing Blue sky.
John Davies used traditional elements with contemporary industrial landscapes in his work. (1). I wanted to use a juxtaposition to say there is more to this place than the beach. It has mystery and secret places. Business was done in the dark in the past.
Using this as a template I produced this series of photographs.
The Image I chose for this Exercise shows the place in a new light whilst keeping some of the components of the expected images.
The photo was taken using a tripod with long exposure. F5.6, ISO100 15 sec exposure. Lens 40mm prime.
