Mega Bridges and Mega Cliffs!
This roadtrip has a mix of modern bridge architecture, on a HUGE scale, and rusting old tractors on the coast!
The Humber Bridge is our first stop – it’s massive and long – so a great place to learn about lenses and what different “focal lengths” do. We’ll show you how to shoot the bridge at 16mm and 200mm and show you the differences. It’s big and really useful.
After the Humber we head north east towards Bridlington – if we get time we may stop at Beverley Minster for a quick few shots of that majestic old church.
Brid has seen better days, it’s a tired seaside town with a mix of things to shoot – though the main reason for the stop is to get some fish and chips and eat them watching the waves!
Next is the main attraction – Flamborough Head
White rocks covered in birds, caves if the tide s out and all kinds of shapes and waves to keep us occupied till sunset
The cafe at the north landing
This is the North Landing
What we’ll learn
This tour is all about variety and fun:-
- big bridges – architecture techniques and HDR
- storytelling – looking out for funny or poignant scenes in Brid
- history – finding features which tell us about the evolution (or decay) of a seaside town
- coastal waves – sharp or blurry, you decide!
- sunsets and lighthouses
What to bring
I’d suggest long lenses for people and storytelling photography and wide lenses for the sea and Bridlington
Tripods are great for HDR and architecture – especially interiors where it may be dark – and essential for waves at sunset.
Filters – a polariser will be useful for blue skies, glass reflections and canals. ND Grads are handy for the sunset and most of the day
Who is it for?
Everyone – this is a tour in a safe group, so advanced people can discover great new locations, beginners can learn about composition etc.
