New year, new ideas. 2014 for me marks the start of many a things. One of these things is my new blog. I wanted to create a space, away from social media like Facebook and Twitter whereby I could share my 'hobby' photos and thoughts in one place without confusing them with my business information.
For my first post I thought I'd share an image from an early morning in Arundel. I took a group that I run up to the land by the train station to capture sunrise over the flooded plains of farmland. It was cold and frosty but we managed to have a good session. It's a shame the sun didn't want to come by to the trees on the right-hand side and the lack of cloud - but we were glad to have the warmth.
Here's my favourite from the session
This was shot on my Canon 5DmIII using a technique I learnt from my landscape course last year. It involves reading the cameras histogram and purposely exposing to the right of the graph. This way, the most data possible is captured which you can then use back in your digital editing package to really bring out the best in the scene. Nothing here is added, just enhanced using a number of tools. Thinking back to the scene as we were standing there, these colours really were there. If we had some cloud, I'm sure we would even had a bit of pink in the sky too.
Fancy coming along on a photowalk? Find me on Facebook or join the 'SNAP' group to see when we're going out next. Hope to hear from you soon.
