Practical Photography shoot - Dorset

Article text
Pulpit Rock, Portland Dorset
After jointly winning the Landscape challenge and a set of Lee filters, the main event was a day out with two of the country's top landscape photographers, David Noton and Jeremy Walker.

After meeting in the morning, I went off with Jeremy to Portland to shoot some cliff and seascapes.

The weather couldn't have been better for shooting. Great clouds, just enough breeze, and a sunset to finish it all off!.

Jeremy was shooting on his trusty Fuji GX617 'beast' and also digitally. I was just concentrating on digital. I'd just discovered the multi-exposure mode on my D200, and was using it to the max! Great for capturing the movement inthe sea and clouds. It also did a partially successful job at removing other visitors from the scene.

The real work began after we had a late lunch of Lasagne and the thickest shake on the South coast (probably) at the Lobster Pot at Portland Bill.

We shot until we couldn't see much more, and exposures were getting into the 'very long' bracket!

Thanks once again to the two Bens, David and to Jeremy, for a fantastic day.
