If someone would ask me what’s the thing I miss most about living in Europe (or in any other part of the temperate world), my answer would be “clouds”. There’s something magical about seeing the sun go down over the sea, surrounded by spectacular clouds, lighting up and creating ever-changing shapes.
That’s why, every time I’m in a place with a lot of clouds (particularly by the sea) I tend to shoot a lot of long-exposure, moody images that portray the way I “see” the scene. Long exposure images are never a true representation of what our eye actually sees, but it does come close to what we imagine, to what we perceive to be the passing of time.
On a more down-to-earth note, my Gulf Photo Plus night and blue hour photography workshop is proving to be very popular. After a sold-out class two weeks ago, we have decided to run another instance on November 23. The weather in Dubai is only getting better so this should be a great time for shooting some cool evening images. More details here.
