Getting the Light

March 19, 2014  •  2 Comments

I have not posted a blog for some time due to other commitments and when I do manage to get little time, I like to be out in the field with the camera. Over this dark wet Winter I have been wanting to try something different with wildlife photography, but haven't been able to get out! I want to improve as a photographer, and try to capture the wildlife in a different way. So for the last four weeks I have aimed to shoot in different lighting conditions and settings on the camera. Shooting into the light, shooting high contrast scenes, I have experimented with low and high key lighting. Also deliberately using slow shutter speeds to get a different look to the scene. Below are some of my favourite photos of the last four weeks using these techniques. Please feel free to leave a comment positive or negative :-)

Great shots Mark, experimenting is always the best way forward, and there're so many ways to use the light to your advantage.
All the best

The owl is so much more than a photo I feel that I could have been standing beside you as you took it You have captured the atmosphere of the moment in a remarkable way Few wildlife images have ever touched me so strongly .Literally stunning
