It looks like we might have a robin’s nest in the garden! They’ve been flying round all day with lot’s of grubs. This caterpillar looks tasty!
The Langdale Pikes above the New Dungeon Ghyll Hotel.
A composite of three exposures at f/8.0 (1/100, 1/200, 1/640).
I’ve wanted to try one of these for a while. Combining a long exposure with some light painting. The only post production in this was a small tweak to vibrance and a slight crop.
30s, f/22, ISO100 – light added using a hand held Manfrotto Luminuse on the branch and foreshore.
Digital Photography School’s weekly challenge was framing. This might be a bit obvious, but I wanted to see if I could create a sense of movement at the edge of the frame, by using a large aperture. 1/160 @ f/1.8
I’m struggling with my photography this week. There’s a lot going on with other important things competing for a share of my mind. It’s at times like this something like photography can really help – if you can get into the zone. But when you struggle to get in the zone it can be frustrating. Experience tells me that this will pass, and I just need to find the place where my mind can settle. Given this photographers block – I thought I’d go back to something fundamental. A single focus on light. I’m not going to fret over composition or narrative.
These images were taken just because the light looked interesting. The two in the woods were simply down to the sun. The leaf was backlit, for the colour, detail and edge light to show. It’s quite fun having the Manfrotto Lumimuse!
