Learning The Light

Before I had gone on my first shoot with The Day That, I had asked Gavan and Chris which type of mornings they preferred to take photos, the glorious mornings with an artists dream etched across the sky, or those grey, murky days that make you glad you own central heating. Of course it was unanimous. They preferred the latter. With a challenge to make a visually strong image that shows the beauty and simplicity of these mornings, it would allow their creative juices to flow.

I have had some previous experience with photography and I was happy to take the colourful mornings that sold themselves. But of course, The Day That captures every dawn, and it isn’t up to us what the weather will be doing! And I knew that eventually I would have to take on the challenge they both loved so much.

Eventually became immediately, and on my first day shadowing Chris on Porthmeor beach we both got soaked from the constant downpour and chilled to the bones from the cold. Through the wind and rain I still took in a lot from Chris about how the light can change during the morning and how to prepare for what the dawn can bring. The trend continued and my newly acquired wet weather gear was given a good christening. Each time joining Gavan or Chris on the morning shoots made me learn that it’s not just about the weather, it is also about the location.

Kieran in more testing conditions

Picking the right location proves to be key in getting great photographs as each location allows you to do something different. An obvious example is if you want to capture the sunrise, get on a beach that faces east. Less obvious examples are knowing about tides, and swells of the sea, and what locations to go to when there is a strong current, or when it is peaceful.

After shadowing them, the guys finally trusted me enough to let me have a camera in my own hands. It is easy to over think when trying to capture a shot, it is also easy to under think. I learnt quickly that the skill is finding that balance of knowing what you want but being confident enough that the decisions almost come naturally. On my first day I over thought. Each minute the sky is brighter and the sun doesn’t hang around to let you get that one last shot. Comparing my shots with Chris’ afterwards, it was clear who the pro was.

Beauty can be found in all conditions

The next day I came back and tried again, and the day after that I had another go, and then another go. Just in the few days I have been out with Gavan and Chris I can see how my images have improved. I still have a long way to go and a lot to learn, but with each return to the coast I have a little more experience that I can use to help me to relax and use the weather to my advantage. Gavan has been taking photos since 21st June 2005. That’s over six years of taking photos for him to get to the stage he is at. With any luck it won’t take me six years to catch up to him.
