Walk Toward the Light

The musician Paul Weller once said that “the space between the notes was as important as the notes themselves”. I think the same can be applied to photography. In my image, Walk Toward the Light, there is a considerable amount of blank space; a dark shadow that is completely black and shows no details. This was a deliberate choice and hopefully, it helped convey a sense of loneliness. Despite already shooting in low light, I chose to under-expose slightly to ensure that the shadows became completely black. Hopefully, it worked and that it’s an image you like.

Lakeside Sunset

Working in the outdoors has many advantages. Perhaps the best one is the endless photo opportunities it presents. As long as I remember to pack a camera of some sort, I’m ready to capture what I see. This shot was a typical sunset. However, this time I didn’t want the usual silhouette of the trees in the foreground. So instead I metered on the foreground allowing me to expose the detail whilst maintaining good colour in the sky and clouds. This is a technique that can be a little tricky to achieve without practice and you may need to do some tweaking in post.

Ivy Fence

For the first of my featured image series, I have chosen “Ivy Fence”. Good composition is a tricky thing to learn. Partly because you’ll often hear conflicting opinions on what makes a good composition. My advice to you would be to look for something different. Experiment by challenging yourself to find a different point of view. This shot could have been much wider and taken in the nearby flowers etc. But I chose to focus on the contrast of the ivy and the wood grain. I don’t claim this is any better, but it’s a different take, which will help you develop a style of your own.

I hope to show you more images of mine where this is the case. Practice looking for a different angle for a shot, even when you don’t have a camera with you. Feel free to show me your examples in the comments.

My New Shop

In the past I have been lucky enough to have been asked about the option to purchase some of my photographs. I am flattered if somebody wishes to hang one on the wall of their home. I am therefore delighted to announce that I have partnered with PicFair to create an online shop for this purpose. Whether you wish to download, print or even to licence them for commercial use, it can all be arranged by clicking on this link.

I will add more photographs in due course. Please leave a comment if you have any specific requests.
