One of the last pictures I took on Wednesday was this flash and burn shot. A flick of the wrist at the time of exposure ensured the lights in the background created trails.
Here is a selection of the pictures shot on Wednesday’s workshop.
A gust of wind ruffled Lora's hair during this exposure. A lobby area in a modern building provided the right kind of natural light.
The same scenario as in the shot above.
The windows of the HBOS hq in Bristol provided the abstract reflections in this picture.
The out of focus elements in this picture form an integral part of the composition.
Evenly lit by 2 windows - this picture is as close to 'badger lighting' as I like to go.
I always like to explore close up shots. The lack of eye contact adds to interest in the picture.
A lift of the face lifts the mood. The side lighting was from a distant window.
Flare is back in style at the moment. Perhaps this is near the limit.
In this picture you can see how I've used patches of reflected sun light from a building across the street.
Lora is in the same position as in the picture above. I've just moved in to make the most of the reflected sunlight on the brown glossy paint in the background.
A fabulous sky gave me a pink hue to blend with the distant street lights on the Bristol waterfront.
Flash from a stand on the right of camera looks after the foreground exposure.
Please feel free to comment on these pictures, especially if you were with me on the day.
