Morning sunlight blasts up Christmas Steps, an ancient thoroughfare in Bristol city centre; 16 Sept 2016.
Close-in with a wide angle lens, low angle sunlight, and textures all around. This was never going to be a colour image but, as always, I like to capture images in colour, and then convert them to mono post-capture with Silver Efex Pro 2. This method does, I think, provide far more options and potential for the final image(or images) than having the camera itself shoot mono images.
Click onto the image to open a larger version in a separate window – recommended.
Technique: X-T1 with 10-24 Fujinon lens at 24mm (equiv); 1600 ISO; Silver Efex Pro 2, starting at the Film Noir 1 preset.
ARCHIVE STILL LIFE
This is a new category on this blog – Archive Still Life studies. The Still Life definition will certainly be followed loosely – e.g. some studies may only have been made “still” by the split second opening of the camera’s shutter – and my objective will be to use as many different types / genres of subject matter as possible. Some images will be Minimalist and, in general, I try to make simpler images, rather than cramming them with visual content.
Some new Still Life studies will (hopefully!) continue to appear.
Love this! That light on the cobbles! I feel as though I’m right there. And wasn’t that a lucky thing, that the walker wore sandals? Those toes! 😉
Yes, the w/a lens takes us right into being there – and purely lucky re the sandals! 🙂
