She’s in the rush to work, in a winter’s dawn.  Gazing out impassively, from light into darkness, a latter day Mona Lisa in a frame within a frame.

And the D700 is working flat out, wide open at 25,600 ISO – grain, shadow, contrast, darkness –  and yet more grain.

Earlier images from this series can be found here: 1, 2, 3, 45, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 1213, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 2324 and 25.  Each will open in a separate window.

Click onto the image to open a larger version in a separate window, and click onto the larger image to enlarge it – and the grain too!!! – yet again.

Technique: D700 with 70-300 Nikkor lens at 300mm; 25,600 ISO; Lightroom; Silver Efex Pro 2, starting at the Film Noir 1 preset; Temple Gate, central Bristol; 23 Dec 2016.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for many types of subject, 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.

    You’re building a really good series Adrian. It’s interesting that this subject draws you in, and the more you work it the better it gets. It might make a compelling book!

      Lynn, I’m very glad to hear that this series gets to you, that’s very encouraging. I am in fact thinking of making a photobook of this series, to give as a Christmas present to a good friend who is a psychologist. I seem to have gone off the boil a bit photographing people at the moment but feel my enthusiasm may re-ignite during the darkness and chill of winter dawns! But in any case I still have many unposted images, and so the series is not done yet.


  2. I love this series. So candid. And it’s not me going to work. 😉 Done with that!

This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
