Yup, it's funny...I think all the weddings over the summer gave me photography fatigue...I just didn't feel like it. Then, over the last week, I've been itching to get out again. I was in Algarve at the weekend, and went out shooting on Sunday night...it was ridiculous, 50mph winds coming off the ocean, just spray and sand everywhere, impossible to shoot, but I really enjoyed it. Went out again on Monday night and just had one of those evenings when it's so easy. Brilliant light and sky, and came back with 5 or 6 shots that I'm really happy with. Everything got soaked, the waves were crazy and I was running down the beach after the retreating waves, setting up, then shooting as they came back towards me....great fun.
My Lee Big Stopper finally arrived today too, so I want to get out and try using that. Hugo ~arqhugo is the architect on our project, and we keep meaning to get out shooting together...hopefully that should happen soon, and I'm putting together the trip to the Sahara and Chefchaouen next year.
So yeah,for the first time in months I'm really feeling passionate about shooting landscapes again
yeah i understand that...weddings are hard work,(just read through your journal and agree wholeheartedly!) as i think i said the two ive shot were quite low key so not to intense pressure wise but still..hard work...editing drove me nuts!! Ive just been so busy with work this year ive not shot nearly half as much as i'd have liked... big stoppers are great, youll love it om sure....im on my second.....dont drop it!!
im so jealous of your sahara trip it sounds fantastic, what vehicle will you use?
anyways look forward to seeing some shots from you andy....best wishes ...
Yeah, quite honestly editing the wedding photos was a bitch!
The morocco trip I'm starting to get excited about. I loved Marrakech a few years ago, and I'm far better at spontaneous shooting now than I was back then, so I'm really looking forward to shooting Chefchauoen and Fez as well as the desert. Vehicle? You'll laugh (or think I'm crazy, or both) but we're taking the Micra! The roads in Morocco aren't bad at all, we went over the mountains near Marrakech a few years back, and the roads on this side of the mountains (more to the east) are much better according to Teresa's father, who drove over to Merzouga some years ago. We'll get to Merzouga fine, then it will be 4x4s out to the place where we'll stay in the dunes.
