For those who haven’t heard of Unsplash how would you best describe it?
Unsplash is a website that features 10 free (do whatever you want), hi-res photos,
every 10 days. The “do whatever you want” means you can use the photos however you wish – in commercial projects, website designs, on blog posts, or posters.
In this blog post I will reveal my top 5 best places to photograph in the UK. I also ask some flickr photographers their opinion on some famous locations.
5. Beachy Head, East Sussex, England
The Beachy Head cliff is the highest chalk sea cliff in Britain, rising to 162 metres above sea level. The peak allows views of the south east coast from Dungeness in the east, to Selsey Bill in the west. The contrast between the green grass and the white chalk cliffs gives photographs more of an impact.
I asked Alan MacKenzie a Flickr photographer What is the attraction of taking a photograph of the Beachy Head?Beachy Head marks the end of the South Downs and is the most striking and magnificent landmark in Sussex. I feel isolated from the civilised world and therefore able to forget all of my worldly responsibilities and create beautiful imagery. Whether I’m there in a snowstorm or looking at a blood red sunset, Beachy Head makes me feel privileged to live in such a beautiful world.
No, i learned it by taking photographs, I travel a lot, trying around with old cameras and did some Assistant Jobs for Commercial Photographers who i could ask my questions while working for them.
How long have you been interested in photography?
Hmmmm, i was doing graffiti when i was young, and after i found this small digital camera which somebody lost in a bar, i thought it could be fun to work with photos and some Graffiti lettering together, like the “Fillin” could be a photo, so i take some photos of structures and different stuff and try to work with them in Photoshop. After a while to take the photo was more interesting for me, then work with them and “destroying” the picture, I was 20 at the time,
In this post I interview Roberto Pavic who takes amazing HDR black and white photographs and beautiful pictures of reflections. With his ongoing success on 500px he is quickly becoming more well known.
Are there any tips you will give to my readers on how to take a photograph with a reflection?
The best way to take photos with reflection is to go to some lake. Also it has to be a day without wind or rain so the surface will become a mirror.
