Wedding Photography at the Paignton Parish Church, and wedding reception at the Humber Barn in Teignmouth

The 2023 Wedding Season is another busy one. I want to start off the 2023 Wedding blog with this wedding I photographed on the 5th of April. I’m still turning up at places I haven’t photographed before, so this also shows you the types of things I do when I’m facing a new venue.

Rough sea at Teignmouth seafront this morning at sunrise

After waking up at 5am this morning for no reason at all, I looked out the window and saw there were stars in the sky. I thought that seeing as there were no clouds I would head over to Teignmouth. I knew the high tide was coinciding with sunrise, plus the stormy winds would likely mean rough waves.

Lots of dog walkers and runners this morning. Thankfully though, they all managed to dodge the crashing waves and not a single person got wet… including me, yay! 🙂

For waves, I always try to keep my exposure time around half a second. I love the look at that shutter speed, plus it makes photos just slightly different to the normal snap-shot photos you’d see on a phone. I will play with shutter speed and ISO to keep it at half a second for as long as possible.

My settings started off at F4, 0.5 Sec, ISO 600 and, as the sun rose, ended at F16, 0.5sec, ISO 100. For the palm tree photo, it was F11, 1/125 ISO 100.
