SPRING-TIME – 13

My photography club has a theme of ‘Spring‘for April. So here’s my take on the theme – Spring-Time!

LOW LIGHT STUDY – 11

LOW LIGHT STUDY by John Allen

Photography is all about controlling the light. And this image came from an exercise where I was looking to light a portrait with a single light – in this case, a masked polystyrene head ( with sunglasses, fur hat and scarf ). She (?) was lit by a single flash head fired through a light-modifier to produce a very narrow vertical strip of light ( as seen in the reflections in the sunglasses. I’m not sure if those bands of light help – or distract. Any thoughts? )

WICKEN FEN – 10

With a group of friends from the photography club, I went to Wicken Fen yesterday for a morning of fun and photography – and coffee and sausage rolls, of course.
Wicken Fen is a National Trust property on the Cambridgeshire Fens. A superb place to visit – lots to see, lots to photograph.

These are three of my images from the visit. All taken on the Olympus EM-1 Mk II; the lichen shot is a ( 60mm )macro shot
