On Saturday I went for a short roadtrip with Sven and Anupam to do some location scouting for our next photoshoot. I've spent a bit of time recently exploring parts of Woodhill Forest near Muriwai Beach, and have found some areas which I thought looked really interesting for a shoot, and happily the other two agreed. Now to start planing a theme/look and organise some models!
After exploring in the woods for an hour or two we made a quick decision to drive down the road to the southern end of Muriwai adjacent to Maori Bay to photograph the sunset before it was too late.
We were in a bit of a rush to check out the area and find our shot before it got too dark, luckily I had my new tripod with me and had a good chance to test out it's solidity for a long exposure shot. I think it worked pretty well, even if the Gannets in the colonies wouldn't sit still for a whole 30 seconds..
