Approaching the Observatorium Concrete Sand Dune with a Fine Art Photography Lens

Recently, the Rotterdam beachscape welcomed a new and unique addition – the Observatorium concrete sand dune. This stunning structure, designed by the Dutch design and research studio, serves as a breakwater and provides a visually captivating scene with its concrete surface covered in a pattern of circular holes reflecting the movement of the sea and sky. As a fine art photographer, I had the opportunity to approach this sand dune with my lens and capture its beauty in a unique way.

The geometric shapes and lines of the sand dune offered a challenge and an opportunity for my photography. The circular holes in the surface created a beautiful abstract form, and the play of light and shadow added depth and texture to my images. I approached the sand dune with a focus on capturing these geometric shapes and lines, as well as the interplay between light and shadow.

I utilized different angles to showcase the sand dune in a variety of ways. Shooting from a low angle allowed me to capture the height and grandeur of the structure, while shooting from a high angle provided a different perspective and showcased the intricate details of the circular holes. I also experimented with different lighting conditions, including sunrise and sunset, to create images with a warm and soft light or a dramatic and bold light.

In conclusion, approaching the Observatorium concrete sand dune with a fine art photography lens provided me with the opportunity to showcase its beauty in a unique and visually stunning way. The interplay between light and shadow, the geometric shapes and lines, and the movement of the sea and sky all contributed to the creation of a visually captivating set of images. I am proud to share my work with others and offer a glimpse into the beauty of this amazing structure.
