This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Well its taken fifty days and a lot of effort! but I am finally there! So here are a few from the past  fifty days. Taken mostly on the Nikon D700 and the iPhone. Edited in lightroom and google+.

Its been very enjoyable too and certainly made me look at black and white in a different way. I would recommend this project to anyone.

Happy shooting!

DAY 47 – “Respite”

I would recommend doing a project like this in the summer!, I never knew how weather dependant this would be to get out there and use a camera! Anyway, the sun is out!! Yay!

Sun shinning through the trees…

Now camera talk.. I love this little bit of kit, the Fuji X100, great for street photography and love its retro look. I better start saving up!

Project – 50 Days of Grey – Day 45

DAY 45 – “Sliders”

Well only five days left!

Its valentines day an I guess I should be posting a heart or something?! well I’m not!! lol. 🙂

Here is an image that I tried something subtle with the colours. Using the HSL (Hue, Saturation and Luminance) sliders in adobe Lightroom, I set all but the blue to -100. This obviously removes the colour saturation but left a hint of blue… what do you think?!

nothing but blue

Went into the local city which is trying its hardest to avert the flooding. The fire service are now pumping and bailing out. Navy recruits are also being drafted in for assistance. Sadly when I arrived all was fairly quiet! Typical.

Project – 50 Days of Grey – Day 42

DAY 42 – “Pages”

Over the twenty or so years taking images I have amassed I large collection of photographic related books. You can’t beat a good book, the tactility and the collect ability.

Here I thought I would share two of my favourites. Go on treat yourself!IMG_4837 IMG_4839

“NEW YORK VERTICAL”

“Using a vintage panoramic camera tilted ninety degrees. Hamann spent nearly five years painstakingly setting up shot after shot, often finding himself balancing precariously out a window ledge, patiently waiting for the perfect lighting conditions.”

“ERNIE”

“Photographer Tony Mendoza had captured the mercurial character of that irascible, self-possessed, utterly lovable cat, telling the curiously moving story of their relationship in the voices of both himself and Ernie.”

Project – 50 Days of Grey – Day 41

DAY 41 – “Seasons”

Day forty one and had a busy day. The first image shown was a drive across open farm land in the early hours, the day started out with a heavy fog. I have photographed this little group of trees so many times over the years. In frost, snow, wind, rain and fog. When ever there is extremes in the climate this little clump of trees always guarantees a pretty picture!

As a bonus for today, set off to the New Forest for a dog walk, sunshine and showers. This is my sister stood up on the ridge not wanting to enter the boggy valley!
