Devon Odds And Ends 6/7

Back in Sidmouth and a walk along the seafront just before dinner. I came across this fellow cameraman who was busy taking shots of the waves, small as they were that evening. I guess he was using a tripod in order to get those slow shutter speed milky looking water effects, not a style I’m particularly fond of.

it's a great picture of the photographer on the breakwater Brian... i don't like the milky water effect either....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter. That effect started off as something different a few years ago but sadly now everybody and his brother does it and some of our photography magazines over here still go all gooey eyed when readers send in images of it.
I like your photo of the photographer!!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth.

I wonder if he shows his pictures as we do?
Brian Walbey: If they are cotton wool water I wouldn't even be interested in seeing them Chris, it is an overdone technique these days as far as I'm concerned.
Great capture of this photographer in full concentration Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard.

Alway nice to see a fellow photographer in action. It always intrigued me how they do those milky shots. It is true, once you have seen a few, you have seen them all.
Brian Walbey: Yes I like seeing other photographers about but only rarely do I ever try such shots, but then I never carry my tripod about anyway, and that is a definite requirement for blurred water.

I think your photograph of a photographer take photographs of small waves has produced
a superior image than that of the man in your photograph. Although he maybe about to join SC with a year-long series of small waves breaking ... that would actually be amazing ... zzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, oh how I hope he doesn't join SC with a never ending supply of waves breaking, if he lives in Sidmouth he could take 100's of different ones every day!

But, I like this shot very much, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray.
Well you caught one but it doesn't look like he saw it Brian
Brian Walbey: He was too busy watching little waves break I think Janet.
I agree a wave should look like a wave ie. like yours
Brian Walbey: I quite agree with you Martin.

No. you need much bigger waves; I good force 8 at least such do it smile I'm not overly keen on the "milky water" effect, either, but other seem t like it. Everything I read about landscape photography suggest you should always use a tripod to which I say RUBBISH! For me, it all depends on the light levels.
Brian Walbey: That effect started off as something different a few years ago but sadly now everybody and his brother does it and some of our photography magazines over here still go all gooey eyed when readers send in images of it. I have a tripod permanently in my car boot, I usually get it out to clean the boot and then put it back again till the next time smile
This reminds me of AU for some reason. Nice.
