Horsforth Evening Classes - 2012/13 Course
30/08/12In a location such as Robin Hoods Bay on a BH weekend the main issue is that there are people everywhere, and then there’s the pressure from family/friends to 'Stop Holding Everyone Up', there’s shops to go in, tat to buy and a beech to visit, (which on this occasion was underwater!)
In my view this is where you look to capture small detail rather than the bigger picture, don’t try to create a record of the whole place, it’s already been done, lots of times over.
No point capturing an image that’s cluttered with tourists and delivery vehicles etc (easier to buy a postcard taken out of season in the deserted location by a pro), so my suggestion is to look for small details that portray the location.
Crop down and why not switch to Black & White mode, make your images timeless..
