Here’s something different for your viewing pleasure…I’ve been waiting to do some Seascape Portraits since beginning of 2011 but never had a couple who were brave enough to take part. Until now that is.
We’ve seen plenty of beach shots and composite images by wedding photographers, but haven’t yet come across this kind of image so thought we’d try it.
I’ve always been impressed by all the seascape images I see and always try to shoot them in my very limited spare time. But as I’m a wedding photographer and shoot a lot of couples, I wanted to merge the two together.
These shots are the first of a series of seascape portraits we will be producing throughout the year.. and when couples want to do this of course..
And yes, they are composites. For those who don’t know what that means, it’s two shots merged into one. The couple and the sea were shot separately using two different techniques and then merged into one image using Photoshop.
A huge thanks to our couples who braved the freezing temperatures and dangerous rocks while the tide was coming in fast.
And bless my wife for being dedicated enough to carry on even though slipped on the rocks and hurt herself on one of the shoots. Luckily she wasn’t injured badly although she did fall ill later that night. Huge thanks to Jasmeen & Arul for their help and support with looking after Shuhenaz that day.
Keep an eye out for more images of this theme. I’ll be adding them periodically with the most recent image first. And also watch out for the full set of images from each couples shoots.
