With the technical issues of data backups and a new PC for the office / studio installed I must turn my attention away from these matters and work on Assignment 3. The course notes allow us freedom here to produce 8 images which in different ways have a common theme. The examples given include a specific colour, water, transient light and conservation.
I am particulary interested in images that are understated and maybe to the casual observer, a bit normal. The normal unspectacular image however does need to be well made and have some interest that is beyond the obvious. Next week I am spending some time in Cumbria and I will shoot with the 5x4 and the digital ragefinder. Do not expect the normal National Park type of images to return. I, like many have done to death the typical Lake District shots (which are quite satisfying and quite relevant for Library stock etc) but this time I am looking for something "different".
This posting has been in draft and I am now back from the Lake District with almost nothing to show. The weather was apalling, to a degree that is was almost impossible to do photography. The high winds would have blown the 5x4 away and the rain was dreadful. I did manage about 3 5x4 but I dont hold out much hop of them being that good.
These 8 images are proving hard to get.
