West Country Walkabout with ATP Members

From September 2011 a group of members from the country to Dorset for our second ATP members meet throughout the weekend of the 17th and 18th.

Everything I met on Friday in one of the guesthouses where we talked for a few hours on a couple of bottles of wine before going to the Chinese restaurant for dinner and I headed towards the house.

Saturday morning seemed a bit dark at 9am but we all entered the mini bus with 17 seats and headed to our first destination … and the Portland Bill Lighthouse.

As soon as we arrived, the clouds were cleared and we had a couple of hours of good light and sunshine which allowed us to play with flash off camera, excellent shutter speed (use large ND filters to stop) for the purpose of milky water And various portrait type landscape photography.

It is interesting to see the different interpretations of each parameter and the environment as everyone as each member begins to upload the images of the members of the ATP.

Lunch was held in a nearby pub and we went for a walk from Weymouth to a refined place we had previously encountered a family with family.

We took time to take pictures of our beautiful models and very patient before the clouds go and the skies open again. However, after a quick coffee in the local cafe overlooking the beach, the sun came out again and we continued the beach to Weymouth.

Next, we set up the Quadra Ranger Ross lights (one of our members) to take other portraits using the technique of killing in the sunlight and “mocking” to create a truly modest aspect of enlightenment.

Then, as many young skaudards passed, Claire surprised them and asked if we could call a little and “knew delicate towers to function”? Well, they were very happy to do so and show off their skills to the delight of everyone present.

A good opportunity to test camera angles, full flash and fast shutter speeds.

Once this was done and we were about to leave, a crowd of people dressed as “Where is Wally” for a family party arrived and again, who were requisitioned and sacrificed in a series of poses for the enjoyment of the children .

Of course, the emails were exchanged and the family and skaons receive a series of tips for all members …

That night, we went to the Enzo Italian restaurant for a great meal (totally recommendable … great place, great atmosphere and excellent food and service).

The next morning the weather was awful.

Two of our members, Ross and Rob are set up very early and went to the door of Durdle and Lulworth … a place we had planned to visit, but the veto in the light of the forecasts. They got some shots, but once again, they opened the skies fret with her.

At 10 pm, we headed to the house and the garage where we made camp.

Then we went to a barn abandoned to the house again, had found a few months before and died of death to prove it as a place of dirty portrait.

Ross built his Quadra again for a few shots that worked well, but the “show star” was the wonderful natural light that flows in the old barn.

Both models were incredibly patient as proven in all the poses and different places in the barn. The contrast of light entering the dark background of the interior of the barn did wonders, as additional light sources of windows and doors in it.
