a) either I wasn't doing a lot recently
b) This blog had fallen the fate of many blogs and is now inactive.
Neither is the case.
I have probably taken more photographs recently than for a long time. Also I have a number of projects which I hope to document/describe at some point.
However the problem is time. The more photos I take, the less time I have to process them. This means in turn that I have less time to work on projects. All these mean that blog writing has taken a back seat.
Hopefully more time will be available soon, but in the meantime here are a few images that I have managed to get somewhere near to completion recently.
All of these are works in progress, so are rough, but nevertheless show promise
|High key image taking in Nottingham|
|Playing with glass|
The next MPS photography is glass, so I have been playing around with some ideas. This was taken at home against a translucent background, and then heavily processed. As such it is not perfect and needs a lot more work, but shows promise.
|Kings Mill over the river|
Taken from the river Trent from the Aston-on-Trent side. I took a lot of photos that day, but a lot were ruined (or at least compromised) by a smear on my polarizing lens. But the bright buildings contrasting against the dark greens works well here
|Again playing with Poppies|
Again poppies but with a relative long exposure, zooming out. I think it works well and provides a different take on flowers
|Tree at sunset|
This is an image I am still thinking about. Leaving the large black space at the bottom is probably a competition fail, but.....I like it. I think maybe the composition is not quite there yet, but close
On top if that we had a trip organised by the Melbourne photographic society to Nottingham. As a result of this I put this montage together, with some suitable music :). I do like putting montages together and in this case I think it went together quite well..
