Worthing Pier at Night.
We are back in Worthing for the weekend. Tomorrow, a friend’s wedding. Sunday, our Grand-daughter’s first birthday! My photo is Worthing Pier at Night.
We arrived late afternoon. A stroll along the prom after dusk, armed with camera, looking for something suitable. I only brought the Olympus tonight, as I did not want to carry the bulky kit.
Noticing that the tide was pretty much fully in, a photograph of Worthing Pier at night seemed to fit the bill. I positioned myself as close to the water’s edge as possible, and set the camera on a low tripod.
One really nice touch with the Olympus OM-D. The rear screen is not fixed to the back of the camera. It can be angled, so you can easily see what you are taking if the camera is very high up or, as in this case, very low down.
I set the ISO to 100, for maximum colour saturation, the aperture to F14. This was the smallest aperture I could go for without having to use the bulb setting. Not having a remote release for this camera at present, I wanted to use a preset shutter speed. This camera offers a very generous 60 seconds. Using a small aperture enhances the starring of the lights – an effect I really like.
I have several shots of Worthing Pier at night. This one has the best reflections of the lot. For once, pretty much all of the lights on the pier were working tonight.
