Stunning photos of Guernsey by local photographer
Here at 7dayselfstore, Guernsey’s best value self store, we love our island home and wanted to share these beautiful pictures of Guernsey taken by talented artist Ben Fiore.
Passion for landscape photography
Ben says: “I’ve been a practising photographer now for 6 years, got my A-Level and BA Hons in the subject.
My passion lies within landscape photography. I love capturing an aesthetically pleasing image, to which we would only see in a spectacular moment of time.
“Approaching a landscape, I am prepared in advance with the direction of sun, tide and of course – batteries.”
“When looking to frame part of the landscape, I am very aware of creating a natural vignette, making the frame enclosed with organic qualities.
“Depth is something I am very conscious of, having a deﬁning foreground, middle ground and background, creates great dimension to the image.”
“Creating the dimension to the image can be emphasised in post production. Whilst my friends watch football on the TV, I prefer to be on Lightroom 5, playing around – highlights versus shadows.”
“Within post production, I will be adjusting the crop, the colours, and deﬁning the subject matter.”
“I feel like I’m a “detail’aholic”. Shooting at optimum settings and making sure my exposure is spot on with the histogram and a light meter, allows me to retain detail and make my images as sharp as possible.
“I feel like this is necessary as most of my landscape revolves around contrasty rocks where detail can be accentuated.
I wish to carry on shooting landscape on this island and everywhere I travel to. Every shot is different due to variable natural elements such as the sea and sky. It also gets me off Lightroom for a few hours.”
