My iphone and I are the best of friends, a few of my daily outings. I cant always rely on having my canon 5d with me when a opportunity arises. I have found that the 23mm angle on the iphone is acceptable for alot of the images I see. I like the ability to transfer the file to my other devises with ease and speed. I use Nik’s Blow Up application if I find I need a larger file for printing. It can be found here.
I have always liked the modern look of architecture and this example is no exception. The Falmer stadium It sits at the foot of the South Downs nestled into the countryside next to the Brighton University.
The clouds were rolling in, and I took the opportunity to photograph the view and was not disappointed. Something about the clouds in this area of the country make one a very quick photographer. They come and go at a moments notice, and you have to be prepared. I used a higher ISO on this photo as I already pre-visualized it was going to be monochrome.
I thought that I would post this image of the winter wonderland in Brighton, before its gone for another year. Something weird about having a ice-rink when there is not snow, but hey-ho.
2013 I hope will be a year of amazing image making. Happy New Year to all.
One thing about Brighton is the quality of light, and obviously the quantity of light available
for architectural photography. True it is impossible to capture all the details in the shadow
without losing your highlights, and many tricks are employed to overcome this problem. I like
the high contrast personally. You eye knows the details are there, and fills in the gaps
( as long as you come as close to most detail as technically possible).
Sussex has some amazing architecture and you only need go out and find it. My trip to Hastings was a fruitful one indeed for architectural photography. The Jarwood Gallery was of particular interest. I had to wait 5 hrs for the light to be perfect, and a frost day, however the local RNIL were having there Christmas Charity fundraiser and it was a warm place to wait with a mince pie and cups of tea.
I think the building itself fits superbly into the landscape on the edge of the sea, a warm inviting place.
Hasting is amazing, and a recent gem of a discovery for me. With all the quaintness
of a seaside town you would expect, but with added features. The fishing industry
is strong here and the history of the smuggles that used to smuggle from France to
avoid taxes is obvious. What greets you as you walk among the fishing village are
these amazing black structures. Smoke houses for the fish that are caught just off
shore. Black to weather the storms that frequent the shores, and old as the day itself.
It make for a surreal stroll to walk among these 2 story structures, with the old old
fishing boat resting amongst them. And I fell in love with them immediately.
I was there to photograph the new Jarwood Gallery. With its slate glistening sides,
its like it was born from the water itself.
The village is filled with tiny shops full of candles, flowers, pottery, and general
Your business needs to STAND OUT, and in todays market, you cant take any chances.
A customer will make up their mind about your business and whether they want to be
your customer in 2 seconds on-line. Interior photography is all about the light,
using supplement lighting in a professional way that makes a image STAND OUT. With
todays broadband speeds, they can be off to the next website in moments, and so with
it your business.
How you present the area of space that you want to sell is crucial as well. If a
room feels cramped, well I would say that cosy on the description wont pass mustard
with todays online critical clients. To make a image that take into account how the
viewers eye passes over a photo is a skill that is learned thru experience and
A amazing image is one that does not make the viewer say ” that’s a flash”. Its a
careful balance that needs to be struct between soft lighting edges and harsh ones
and the ambient ( existing light) and the light that is introduced into the photograph.
In the end, a great image that can make you money is worth your investment, and to
get that image you need a professional who can not only bring your ideas to life,
but do so in a way that makes your business STAND OUT.
