60 Minute Challenge

Whilst in Salisbury earlier this week I had a couple of hours to fill.  What to do?  Well, first priority was for a snack and a drink then refreshed and armed with my Fuji XT2 and 50-140 f2.8 zoom I set myself a 60 minute challenge to see what pictures I could take.  Well here are a few of those pictures…. Hope you like them!

London Fashion Week… On the street

For five days in September London Fashion Week took place so I decided to extend my Street Photography experience and venture onto the London Streets. Well,  I have to say it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience and a definite photographic challenge. I decided not to take “street photography” (see my last post for definition) images but to approach the individuals and adopt “The Sartorialist” method which I can assure you is no mean undertaking. To approach strangers with a view to photographing them is not for the faint hearted. It was with a mixture of trepidation and excitement, armed with my Fuji XT2 ,16-55mm, f2.8, zoom lens and totally reliant on natural light I set off to see who was setting the sartorial mood on the street. Here are some of my pics:

Barrington Court NT

What a wonderful day at Barrington Court.  The weather was perfect with blue skies, a dash of light white cloud and a slight breeze, all of which contributed to the most vibrant colour in the gardens… well it was just one of those perfect days.  Words cannot effectively describe what we found there, I will let my photos do the talking.  So without further ado let the pictures roll……

Sherborne Abbey

I am very lucky to live close to Sherborne Abbey (well 20 minutes away by car). As a freelance photographer I regularly have assignments which take me close to or on occasions into the Abbey but like most things the more you see it the less you tend to notice.  On Monday, I had an assignment for the local paper to go to the Gryphon School and photograph a Lego model of the Digby Memorial. Their next project is to build a scale model of Sherborne Abbey also in Lego and this really made me think of what I could achieve with a little photoshop licence.  So off to the Abbey I went and snapped a few pictures trying to visualise how I would like the finished images to look. It was quite a grey day which was ideal as I would get no sun flare, reflections or heavy shadows.  Below are the before and after shots.  Hope you like them and I would be interested in your comments.
