Landscape Photography Minimalism

Landscape Photography Minimalism - I was struggling to find inspiration for a landscape photograph whilst back in Suffolk during a miserable Bank Holiday weekend. In the end, as a last resort, I headed to Southwold Beach, a favourite place of mine to look for a minimalistic image. The resulting image was a pleasing one but it took more than just a quick edit to produce the final result. To pull the best out of the shot I changed the image to black and white and gave it the square square crop , which suited the style better in my opinion. How the image was broadly created. The image was composed of three layers, two black and white and a colour layer. The black and white layers were blended in Photoshop using luminosity masks to selectively enhance the highlights and shadows. The colour layer was left almost as original but was subtly enhanced by split toning to take control of the cool blue tones in the highlights and shadow. This layer was added to the black and white image using layer masks and allowed to bleed through to selected ares in the sea and sky. I would love to have filmed a tutorial on this but I'm afraid the result was more about a voyage of discovery for me, rather than a set method that I could confidently re-create. Please feel free to ask any questions.

Old St Annes Pier Morecambe Bay

Old St Annes Pier Morecambe Bay - I could believe my luck on this particular morning and felt very blessed indeed with the images that I took away from this shoot! Results like these don't come along very often!

I had always wanted to shoot the old St Annes pier and thought that it needed wet sand and a reflected sunrise in order for it to really work as an image. On this particular day, I had gone to do more of a recognisance to see what height the tide would need to be in relation to the pier to get the image that I had in my mind's eye. However, I couldn't help but notice that the forecast was for high cloud only at sunrise and that the tide was possibly going to be in the right place...!

Location
The Old St Annes pier is located along the Lancashire coastline on the Morecambe Bay estuary, just south of Blackpool in the North West of England.
