Recording history #photography #history

There are many different categories of photography and I enjoy most of them. I try to photograph historic buildings and I am very aware of how quickly these buildings can disappear. I photograph streets of terraced houses as well as the larger listed buildings. Recording history for future generations is worthwhile and it can be done in a few different ways.

Recording history

I photographed some alms-houses on Sunday and this Victorian house was opposite. I didn’t really get what I wanted and this was my third attempt. I really need to take the photos at just the right time to get the light that I want. You can see that one side of this house is darker than the other and the shadows help to give it form but a little more sunshine would have been better. The alms-houses had too many cars parked around them and I also think those shots would be better taken in summer when there are leaves on the trees. My outing on Sunday was a good one for future reference. I often check a location out first with the intention of going back when I have better light. My outing as far as recording history was concerned was reasonably successful.

Settings

The sky seemed quite grey for these shots and it was a diffused light but on aperture priority, I got quite fast shutter speeds. This shot was at f/8 and I got 1/400 of a second. I used centre-weighted metering. For a shot that was meant to be recording history, I’m reasonably happy with it. I think I’ll still go back and photograph the alms-houses and this house in a better light. There was some pollution in the air on Sunday, everything looked a little murky. The quality of the air, as well as the quality of the light, makes a difference. This shot would be better taken in the late afternoon.

Nikon D750

I’m still getting used to my Nikon D750 and the 28 – 300 lens. I think the lens is a good all-round lens but I do need to change the lens for better shots sometimes. My 35mm DX prime lens will probably give me some quality shots as spring arrives. I need to get used to some of the special features of the D750 such as bracketing, too. I have tried the colour picking, a special effect, that will be useful in certain situations.

Special effect

This is an interesting special effect giving me a monochrome picture with red as the colour picked.  It might have been better without the rug. This effect will be useful for highlighting just a little colour in a monochrome picture. Too much colour wouldn’t work so well.

That’s all for this week. If you would like to follow my blog just enter your email address at the top of the sidebar or follow me on Twitter for links to my latest posts. There are also links on my Facebook page.
