Christmas Card 2020
Christmas Cards are always hard to define as Christmas means so much to so many people. This years I'm returning to a well used theme of "Trees". It's a great time to photograph bare trees at the moment but finding them against the sky isn't always easy. One of my other recurring elements is a circle in a square format. All tried and tested elements.
I had a background I wanted use and my trees but tried various ways of mixing them together. In the end I decided to go for the more simple approach instead of trying to reinvent the wheel.
I hope you all have a great Festive Season, keep safe & well.
During Lockdown 2 my Archiving has continued and will for many weeks to come. It’s slow process as I’d not realised that I’d made so many images.
In 2013 I had a project with a friend to create an image s day, I’ve skipped that year and will return after the New Year, I think I need a cold, wet, dull day to start tackling that one.
Each image I add to the Archive brings back a memory, some about taking of the image and some memories of judges and peoples comments about the prints during talks and judging. The three new images are all ones that have one well in exhibition but also have a special place in my photographic timeline.
Three new images on the Archive Page.
Each page has a link to the next new mage at the bottom of the page.The Archive will be regally up dated as it shows images and stories that haven’t been seen in a while. Do you have any memories from the images, let me know on the Contact Page or Comment below.Looking forward to hearing from you. Don’t forget to like my facebook page if you used the link from there, it just helps me know posting on Facebook about updates works. Thanks for looking.
SRGB GROUP CRITIQUE
The SRGB Group are keeping in touch through our webpage and posting on Our Members Critique Group. We Take it n turns to choose image of the lunch and two runners up The Critique is anon subjected in November we added a theme.
I’m pleased to say that Fae Chilling was chosen as Novembers Winner. It’s always very special when a team member picks and award in the group.The Theme Award and Runners up are on our Facebook Page.
The original is taken with my iPhone. She usually ends up sat with me or near me. Fae was actually having a wash, I called her name and took four shots. this was the best of the set. I like the way her tail flips up to take you back to her face and the eye contact.
Processed in Photoshop, I added a couple of textures to cover up the blanket and the chair and a little dodging & burning to highlight areas and her eyes are slightly saturated. It has 32 layers in 5 groups.
I’ve printed it on Hahnemühle Hemp, part of the Eco Friendly Naturals Range to add the final magic.
