Lazy Hazy Days of Summer Photography

Whitstable Beach Huts
Whitstable Beach Huts by Lou Smith Fine Art Photography

Summer is here at last!  The jet stream is on the move and is bringing warm, sunny weather to London.  Bring on those lazy hazy days of summer!  Rich colour is everywhere and I am photographing the colours of summer.  In my beach hut series I squeeze high key colours together to create bright, vibrant images.  Here is my sonnet in red, yellow and green.  This photograph sizzles with colour!

It’s always great to photograph in the sunshine.  Take care to control exposure settings to minimise clipping highlights.  Use a circular polarizing filter to control light and reflections on shiny surfaces.  The polarizing filter will also create richer darks and shadows.

Lou Smith teaches photography and to learn how to squeeze those colours, book a course with London Photo Tours & Workshops
