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
BACK LIT GRASSES
LICHEN ON OLD WOOD
A studio shot of this orchid – with one light through a soft box, a white reflector and a black backcloth.
I like the final image achieved with the simplest of lighting set ups.
A red squirrel from our photography trip to Anglesey.
Taken at a Falconry Day at the Hawking Centre in Doddington, Kent.
On the Olympus EM-1 MkII; 40-150mm Pro lens at 150mm; f/6.3 @ 1/3200 sec; hand held.
Another year is slipping away – but at least it gives us the technicolor beauty of the autumn season
A macro shot of a Crane Fly taken on the Olympus EM-1 MkII
I used a 60mm macro lens, single flash and a small soft box.
I got two shots – this was the second – before he got bored and flew off.
Taken at our local RSPB reserve.
These birds are just beautiful!
Well, it does look like one, doesn’t it?
A studio shot – two flash heads, reflectors and some Photoshop magic for the textures.
This young Goldfinch visited the bird feeder in our garden.
Yesterday (s)he was here with the parents – but I missed that one 😦
Some photography friends and I went to the Hitchin Lavender fields in Hertfordshire.
Here are some of my images from the trip.
All taken on my Olympus EM-1 MkII.
