Gorleston Beach - One last time...

23rd November 2014
…not forever…I will be back there for sure, read on to find out what I mean!

I love photographing families and groups, of course I do, the interplay between siblings and/or parents can be very entertaining and always produce images that reflect this, but individual shoots are always special for me too. They are different in that I can concentrate on the one person and really connect to show their character in the photos captured. This was definitely the case in this delightful shoot that bucked the recent trend of Burgh Castle, in favour of a portrait session at Gorleston Beach. This will be my last portrait shoot here for this year, and I would imagine, it will be late Spring before I get to return for another. Why?
Well, although the light can be stunning at times, Autumn (and Winter) shoots here can be a bit hit and miss because of the windy conditions often experienced along the coast. With the wind normally comes cold conditions, which aren't comfortable for anyone!
The day in question was sunny, unseasonably warm, and a touch breezy, which did cause a few slight delays whilst waiting for the occasional gust to die down, but it was at least workable. As you can tell from the photos below that was the only slight issue. The subject was a well behaved and very photogenic young lady, who just great to work with and made my job very easy indeed. The late afternoon sun gave a very summery feel to the shots I took. This can be seen particularly well in the last contra jour (French for 'against the light') image, with a suitably arty hazy effect of which I am a big fan.
