Not a lot to say about this image. I’ve been looking at Michael Kenna’s photos a lot and his use of black and white has influenced my decision to go colourless here. I can’t say there are any other similarities between our photography. His choice of using medium format cameras has inspired me to pick up my Rolleiflex again though, which I’m going to use when I head out tomorrow morning. I had intended to go out this morning as it was supposed to be a misty one, but after a week at work I thought a Saturday morning lie-in was more important. This was the wrong decision, I’m sure you’ll agree.
This is the one of my latest photos and the first to appear in the new ‘Featured Post’ section of my blog, a place I will use to showcase my most recent image. I’m in the process of streamlining my blog, including starting a new policy of ‘one post, one picture’, so it may be a bit messy while I re-edit some of my older posts.
As promised in my previous post, here is a photo from one of my many trips to the walled garden here in Brighton. There’s been a lot of green in my photos recently so I decided to black and white for a change.
Here are a few photos from the afternoon I spent at a local park. These are the first photos I’ve taken where I’ve really put my macro lens to use, which reminds me that I should use it more often because I really enjoy taking my time over these close-up shots. It also reminds me that I should make a post of my (small) collection of gear sometime. I didn’t have my tripod with me on this occasion so it was tricky taking these shots freestanding. I set my camera to continuous shooting mode and luckily a few of the frames came out in focus.
