Lifestyle Portrait Shoot: Morecambe Beach

Last month, my sister came to visit us in Lancaster and I took her to Morecambe for the day. We strolled along the promenade, visited the Old Pier bookshop and had lunch at Sassparella Vintage cafe.  We then had half an hour for me to take some photos before our car park ticket ran out.  

I'd been wanting to do a moody beach shoot for quite some time and had saved lots of inspiration and ideas on my + Shoot by the Sea + Pinterest board.  Morecambe on a wet and windy day is actually perfect for a documentary photo-shoot.  The light is diffused, the colours muted and the location great for playing around with composition.  

I managed to capture some great shots and was able to experiment with my new VSCO film presets for the edits.  All in all, it was a great mini project and Morecambe is definitely one of my favourite places to photograph!  I hope I can persuade my sister to model again soon too!
