My major influences are two Northumbrian Professional Photographers,Andy Craig and Andy Brown. It was whilst on a PHOTOGRAPHY TRAINING COURSE that i was introduced to NATURAL PHOTOGRAPHY.
Here one can develop Photography by following one’s instincts, visiting several locations on a walk to photograph what is happening in the landscape. How the image can capture the Moods in the Landscape,by capturing the Atmosphere and Drama.
Documenting the story of the landscape as you pass through it.
I focus on MOODY AND INTIMATE LANDSCAPES OF THE COUNTRYSIDE.
As a DIGITAL ARTIST, i add a Creative Vision(Digital Manipulation) to convey a personal impression (Not always merely producing realistic rendering of a subject). Taking inspiration from what i see and try to capture the moment through an informal style of photography. I like to be Creative and Imaginative with the Images(In Post Processing) to give them an ARTY,DREAMY,ATMOSPHERIC or MOODY Feel. To create a photograph that may convey a completely different feel to that encountered when the image was captured.
This i found to be of great interest and a great way way to combine my love of Walking and Photography (PHOTOWALKS).A PHOTOWALK doesn’t have to be a 20 mile hike up Ben Nevis, it may be a stroll around the village with the dog, a mooch along the canal or a wander across the fields to the distant viewpoint. Whatever distance you stroll, there will be photo opportunities to capture.
My Blog will develop this style of Photography.
Living presently in the Vale of Belvoir,my main Blogs will be around this beautiful Vale,East Leicestershire,Rutland and other Moochings.
