Coast Portrait Photoshoot – Cornwall

Personal projects as a photographer are important for keeping the creativity levels up. As we all need play as well as work right? For me shooting portraits is a subject that I really enjoy outside of wedding photography. Have you seen my HOME PORTRAIT SHOOT WITH AGNES? I met with Kyi in Cornwall for this coast portrait photoshoot at Bedruthan Steps on a calm summer’s evening.

The brief…

I asked Kyi if she would wear a white dress, and also bring a hat as an accessory. This gives great shape against the brighter sky. For me, this gives me inspiration and good practice for future WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY. My dream is to one-day shoot weddings in locations such as this, because who wouldn’t want to? On arrival, the sun had just dipped below the horizon and there was only a small breeze in the air. The conditions were perfect for this photoshoot! I’m a sucker for an epic backdrop like the rugged coastlines of Cornwall. Maybe you are planning a wedding or elopement in a location such as this?

How it was shot…

The light was soft and diffused as the sun had dipped below the horizon. Blue hour as I call it is a great time for photography. Soft pastel colors and good contrast are given. Perfect for wedding photography! I asked Kyi to keep facing towards the light, to give a soft even glow across her face. Something that would be tricky if the sun was in the sky. I shot this set on Nikon d850, and I also made a short video on the Nikon z6 SEEN HERE ON MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL. I also like to keep the sun directly behind a subject, for a nice sun flare and silhouette look.
