The Emirates

Our magical adventure to The Emirates 

I was lucky enough to travel with Poppy to the amazing Ras al-Khaimah. We had a full week of exploring the desert, staying in beautiful hotels and zip lining through mountains. A truly unforgettable experience.

Such direct sun can produce harsh light, making it difficult to find the correct angles to shoot from. TOP TIP: 

  • Keep faces in the shade
  • Don't put your aperture too wide unless you have a lens filter
  • Shoot with the sun behind your subject, creates a more flattering light

Did I mention we went horse riding! (well Poppy did... I walked around for a bit and then decided the floor was safer).

Finding empty roads in the middle of a desert is just a dream, we shot this after our sunrise shoot and the light was oh so soft it just made Poppy shine.
