Photographic magazines, and a book (Pagan Britain, by Ronald Hutton), piled untidily on the coffee table in our living room; 8 Sept 2015.

The coffee table next to the armchair in which I read, reflect and relax – and booze and snooze too – often in that order.

D700 with 24-120 Nikkor at 120mm; 800 ISO; Silver Efex Pro 2, starting at the Film Noir 1 preset and adding a moderate Ambrotype tone; rotated 90 degrees clockwise.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    Beautiful chaos defies gravity! The warm tones are nice, too.

      Indeed! Glad you like the ambrotype tone, don’t use it a lot but it seems to suit this. Thank you, Lynn! A

        “Ambrotype”? I’ve never heard of it. One of these days I WILL get Silver Efex!! News on the camera front: My LCD screen died two weeks ago and in two days I’m going to Arizona. )-: There wasn’t enough to time to do anything – not worth fixing so I’ m going to buy a new camera, but the cost is so significantly lower when you order from far away places that I couldn’t justify buying a new camera locally, in time for the trip. So I’ll live with the lack of screen next week in red rock country and we’ll see what happens.

          If you take notice of nothing I say, you will join the great majority of mankind >>> BUT I DO urge you not to put off getting Silver Efex Pro 2, it is just absolutely wonderful, simple as that!

          Bad luck re your camera – I take it that it doesn’t have a viewfinder? One way forward is to take a series of test shots estimating what the camera is looking at, and then to look at them on a computer – which might give you more idea of how/where to point the camera when you’re photographing a scene.
