I am now over half way through my photography short course and absolutely loving it. I have learnt so much in such a short time, I am feeling very inspired and keen to get out there and experiment more and more.
On Sunday, I had a day workshop taking photo’s along Bedford Embankment. We were so lucky with the weather, it was a lovely day, if anything, it was probably too sunny for some of the shots but hey, I’m not complaining as I love sunny, Autumn days!
I do have a fondness of trees and how the light can bounce off them and the different lines that you get from them.
I love leaves, there so many great patterns that can be formed from leaves and at this time of year when the leaves are changing, the colours are so beautiful.
This is just a simple photo of grass but I really like how the light captures it.
I was using my wide angle lens for this photo, capturing lines and angles with white on blue.
You know I don’t remember taking this photo as I took a few but the swirly patterns in the water is very captivating.
Practising shutter speed with the weir, it was a bit tricky as there was so much light as you can from the reflection, possibly a filter would have been useful for these shots.
I never realised how quick Swans move until I tried to photograph them, they are graceful but fast! Hence why part of this Swan’s head is missing but having said that, I still like this shot.
Close up of feathers and water droplets on the feathers. Great patterns.
This is a fun shot. If that goose could talk, I am sure he would be saying, ‘are you still taking pictures of me’!!
Playing with lines with this shot.
I do have a love of flowers, the colours, and shapes all form great bases for surface patterns.
I am thoroughly enjoying this learning process and my photo’s are bringing me more inspiration for future surface designs.
I cannot recommend more highly Inspired Light Images for photography courses, both Will and Kay are fantastic teachers. They also do workshops in London as well which I would be keen to do at some stage.
