Portfolio Update

I have now updated my portfolio with another two images which can be found in the ‘Recent Work‘ section on my website.

Fujifilm X-E3, XF18mm f/2 R, ISO 200, 1/45 sec at f/6.4,

The first is called ‘Spirit of the Woods’ and I hope it’s clear why that title came to me and why I approached the image in the way that I did.

I saw this tree at the Batsford Arboretum in Gloucestershire and it struck me immediately that it looked like a giant spider or creature. It appeared to me as though it was coming through the trees underneath the canopy of branches.

I originally processed it with the trees in the background but the composition looked too busy, so I darkened the area behind the ‘creature’ and arrived at the impression that I wanted to give to the viewer.

Fujifilm X-Pro2, XF18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS, ISO 200, 1/160 sec at f/11

The other photograph was taken at Bradgate Park in Leicestershire. The hill with a cenotaph placed on top is in the background and along the road, in the middle-distance, two people can be seen walking towards the hill. I wanted to get a sense of distance in the image but also include the two people in the narrative. The mound and the monument on its summit have an air of mystery and destination.
