Rhosilli is a small village and coastal area in Gower, Swansea, and classed as an area of outstanding natural beauty. To get to the area its about an hours drive from my house, but when you get there, there is something special about the area.
This area is very hard to photograph, as it has been photographed by millions of photographers, day in and day out, so the challenge is to get something different from everyone else. In this respect, I’m not sure I have done that, but I have mostly stuck to the one camera one lens principle and use the 23mm F/1.4 Viltrox lens (with just a couple of shots with the 85mm F/1.8mm lens).
The only editing done to most of these photos was to correct the exposure as the sun was going down fast, a little bit of cropping and adding some blacks. They are a bit more tweaked than my usual photographs, however, something different was needed. Feel free to click on each image to see it in better quality than Facebook, and see all the relevant EXIF data.
All the above images were taken with my trusty Fujifilm camera in both jpeg with Classic Chrome film simulation plus also in raw (which I will edit at a later date if need be). I did also take a few photo’s using my Huawei P30 Pro mobile phone, which I always do when I am out an about. These were edited in Snapseed on my mobile phone.
As you can see, these are very different from my camera shots, and they took advantage of the phone’s huge zoom capabilities. They are something a little bit different, and the people shot I am really proud of, as it’s quite different and a composition I see and liked as soon as I could see it in the distance.
