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.
|Queen Visits Sherborne|
Hundreds of people braved the wet weather to welcome the Queen to Sherborne, Dorset. She and the Duke of Edinburgh arrived by Royal Train to begin a series of engagements in Dorset and Wiltshire as part of her Diamond Jubilee tour of the UK. On arrival at Sherborne Abbey, the Queen and Philip met primary schoolchildren at a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party in a marquee on the lawn.
