Twilight

I did not know that there were several kinds of twilight before I got interested in night photography.

This is the full moon over the Oresund bridge on 2nd July in nautical twilight and it was as dark as it got that night.

Monochrome

In a previous post more than a month ago I mentioned that I was going to Paris and Copenhagen. I have been now and the top photo is taken in the courtyard of Palais Royal. If you want to see more Paris photos I posted some on my Flickr stream.

The middle photo is from Copenhagen, not that you can tell from a photo of lamp though, but it is kind of monochrome, this week’s cornerview theme. Anyhow, most of the photos I took there were of my little grandson and will not be published.

The last one is from a small pretty and touristy village, Mijas, close to my corner. They host an annual photo marathon which I participated in. One theme was Shadows and this was one of my attempts, a section of a lace curtain making shadows on the white wall.

Cornerview: Mix & match

my flower meadow
I have been taking tonnes of photographs of wild flowers this month … they are everywhere and in abundance. I like the mix and match effect of this double-expore from the piece of meadow that you can also see on the first photo in my previous post.

I can’t imagine how or why this train ended up where it did. Where, is somewhere in the outskirts of Marbella. I photographed it because I went there with some photographer friends who right away imagined coming back at night time to take more imaginative photographs of it.

Cornerview: Something difficult

At the moment I am into low light photography, that is, learning … The above photos are rather extreme low light or at least that was what we were attempting to achieve last night. No moon and  a clear sky.

One thing is that it may seem difficult to acquire the technique to photograph darkness, but what is also really difficult is to find a dark place to practice.

The above photos are from last night not far from home. On the first photo the light pollution comes from the Costa del Sol about 60 km away. On the last photo the lights at the bottom are from a windmill park in the opposite direction of the first photo.

Photography

RPS_LRPS_RGB
Last year in June I joined the Royal Photographic Society in the UK, mainly because other photographers had recommended it and a way to move on with my photography.

Last month I was awarded the LRPS (Licentiateship of The RPS) distinction, which I am very happy about.

It was really difficult to pick out a suitable selection of 10 photos, and to learn to look more objectively at my own pics. One very good advise I received along the way was to “keep it simple” and think about what you want the viewer to see. I also learned to focus a bit more on the technical stuff than I have been too lazy to care about before. All in all, it has been a really good learning process.

Have a great weekend.
