Lockdown project in aid of the mental health charity Mind
Hi and welcome to my photography website! Hopefully there are some images here that you find both visually enjoyable and interesting. I have put two main galleries in, one for colour images the other for black and white with the following categories: landscape, people & environment, living the view, wildlife, urban and patterns & form. They are largely my favourite images taken over the years.
Black and white photography has become something of a passion. The tones of grey from black to white can bring out the senses of contrast and shadows, emphasise shapes and lines, and create a stronger connection to an image. Sometimes colour can be a distraction. "When you photograph people in colour you photograph their clothes. When you photograph people in black and white you photograph their souls", Ted Grant.
And of course , if the subject or composition doesn't stand up, no amount of digital help will improve the image. Another quote, this time from Ansel Adams "A good photograph is knowing where to stand".
