A couple of days before the New Year Daphne and I went for one of our favourite walks – along the South Bank of the River Thames, between St Pauls Cathedral and Embankment Station. These are some of the images I caught along the way.
All taken on the Olympus EM-1 Mk II ( I hear there’s a new one coming out later this month. Oh dear!! ) … and a 12-100mm f4 Pro Lens, handheld. ( Yes, I know!! )
In Northumberland for a week with some photography friends from our club. The weather for the week doesn’t look too kind but yesterday we went to the Breamish Valley on the east side of the Northumberland National Park.
This is a shot of the River Breamish running across the rocks forming a small weir. Taken at f/22, 1/20 sec at ISO 320.
These are the Staubbach Falls in the Lauterbrunnen Valley in Switzerland.
This was taken from the train on the day we left Wengen on our way to Konstanz.
There is a small zig-zag footpath at the base of the falls. That must be a fascinating walk looking up at that cascading water!
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? )
