Photography on the Suffolk coast
I had a fantastic afternoon photographing a well-known location on the Suffolk coast. Although it is a much visited location it was the first time I had visited this area.
I spent a couple of hours playing with different shutter speeds and with the moving water around some very photogenic sea defences.
It’s not always about “shoot with the slowest or fastest speed possible”, it’s about shooting using the right shutter speed for that particular subject.
In this instance I used a very slow shutter speed to create a lot of blurred movement which smoothed the sea over very nicely. I then used a slightly faster shutter speed of about 2 to 4 seconds which still gave me blurred water but also retained some of the braking wave’s structure.
All in all I really enjoyed my time on the Suffolk coast.
