Last weekend, I went out wearing a tee-shirt and my ‘sun hat’ for the first time this year, it was springtime at last! I had advanced knowledge of narrowboats on the canal and they make for a colourful picture. The light was quite harsh and you can’t always choose which way to shoot. I took some shots into the sun which isn’t always a very good idea.
Last night’s supermoon was obscured by cloud earlier in the evening but lots of people tried to photograph it. It did eventually break out from behind the cloud in the Black Country and was as bright as ever and so too bright for many cameras. I took my shots with a 300 mm lens on manual and used spot focus.
Have you noticed how many photographers get really amazing images for magazines and calendars? How do they do it? Part of the answer is to plan the competition photo and then you have to be lucky with the light.
The light wasn’t very good when I took this photo but the snow reflected some light. Photographs are a form of art and some photos just give an impression and others are more like fine art and are very sharp. (more…)
We had an afternoon taking photos yesterday, but conditions were far from ideal. We had cloudy skies all afternoon, but later in the afternoon a little sun broke through and I got this picture with an ISO of 400. (more…)
I tried to do something different with photography this week, not just taking photos, but something different in the editing too. This photo of the church tower is a very unusual angle and I edited to make the most of the Gothic architecture. I think photos should be interesting, not just snaps. (more…)
