A Stunning Birthday Sunrise
An insanely early start on my birthday pays off with some amazing light and a stunning sunrise in this landscape photography vlog.
Getting up early to shoot landscape photography is never easy. Some days though, when you are rewarded with an incredible sunrise, it all becomes worth it. Then comes the hard work of making the the most of the available light.
Sunrise photography can often be harder than capturing a sunset. Shooting sunsets affords the luxury of watching the light develop, providing time to get into the right location and compose a shot. Sunrises on the other hand often develop quickly as the sun comes up. Composing the shot in relative darkness provides it’s own challenges as you have to predict how things will look once they are bathed in sunlight.
Filey, North Yorkshire
In this vlog I get up very early and travel to Filey on the East coast of England. My aim is to capture some beautiful seascape photography that makes the most of the stunning sunrise. Coastal images lend themselves perfectly to sunrise and sunset shots as the sea and water reflect all the colour and increase the impact of your image. I find a nice composition at Filey Brigg. To learn more about composition you can check out some of my best landscape photography tutorials on the channel.
Now that Spring has hit I also wanted to tell that story, using one of the classic signs of Spring, the daffodil. Happily there was a good number of daffodills growing on Filey Brigg so I composed a couple of images to try and make the best of these beautiful flowers.
