New year, now what?

So, last year I completed my 366 project ‘Images not words’, with not a single day missed. Now, with that completed I’m asking myself, now what? The simple answer is to just keep on shooting.

I will be taking a look back through all of last years pics, putting together groups of images that fit into the same category or that create some sort of narrative/story. How long that will take I cannot say but in the back of my mind I would like to be able to produce something tangible out of it. Not a book but perhaps something more DIY, like a pamphlet. All just ideas at this stage but something to aim towards.

For now I think I’ll be keeping the blog going by showcasing images taken on a weekly basis.

So, here is a small selection of the images taken this week.

Thanks for stopping by.

Mist at Bodiam

Heading home on a cold clear Friday night, I thought there would be a good chance of mist the next morning. So, alarm set for 6am I set out for Bodiam castle. The weather didn’t disappoint.

I arrived while it was still relatively dark, so I set up the camera and tripod using the light from the car boot before trundling off toward the castle.

Though my main focus was to capture any mist coming off the moat, I did stop to take one or two shots looking out across the fields.

 I decided to use the foliage to frame my a lot of my shots, as the sky, looking from the south east corner,  was pretty plain. It wasn’t until I walked round to the north west corner, that the sky proved to be a little more dramatic (once the sun had started to rise above the layer of mist). It was here that I bumped into another photographer, who I had a nice chat with as we snapped away.

All shots were taken at 10mm (crop sensor) and filtered with a 3 stop ND grad. (See phone snap below)



Images not words (July review)

Pretty happy with how July went, In fact I think this has been my strongest month so far.

My thought are starting to turn towards what I might do with some of the images when this project comes to an end. I’ll most likely start to group specific types of pictures into groups and make collections out of those, or turn these into spin off projects. It would be nice to do something more with them if possible, like say a mini exhibition or a self published booklet. I think a full blown book is some way off yet.

Anyway, lots to keep me thinking about.

Pip pip.


Street ramble 10.7

A small collection of shots taken this weekend.

I seem to have shifted my focus to almost exclusively shoot street/urban areas. While my 366 project has forced me to look for things a lot closer to home, the street is definitely where my interest has shifted towards these past few years, causing my landscape work to take a backseat.  Perhaps I’ll get back to including some landscape work come the autumn.
