I thought I’d attempt this week’s springtime photo post at a sensible hour. I’ve tried this for two reasons: firstly, I claim to post on a Sunday, but admit that I mostly post very early on Monday morning; secondly, I’m going to be starting lab work by 7 AM every day from now until Christmas, so I need to get to bed at a sensible hour. Look forward both to this, and to my collection of photos taken at golden hour swelling exponentially.
Since I’ve spent much of my free time over the past week refurbishing an old SLR (I will be writing about this in the first week February, 2014), this week’s post is a tidy-up of photos from the past few weeks which I felt I should publish.
As a bit of a curve-ball for these springtime posts, the first photo in this post is black and white. I chose to do this because it highlighted the sun catching the new foliage better than the colour version. If you look at this week’s photos carefully, you will realise that they are unified by the setting sun: the warmer tint in the highlights; longer, deeper shadows; and protracted lens flare from a shallower angle to the shooting position.
Anyway, that’s about it for this week. Next week, thanks to hideously long experiments which a machine is performing for me, I should manage to take some photos especially for tying off this series of photo posts. Enjoy the remaining two photos in this post, and happy photographing!
