It's too foggy for photos!


It can be a bit difficult to get excited on a foggy dull day when the colours are washed out and there's little contrast. On the other hand it's a great opportunity to take some atmospheric shots through the veil of misty air. Here are some shots I took yesterday 1st Nov 2015.
I love the texture of these pine tree trunks melting away into the fog.

The golden ferns against the gloomy woods makes a great contrast.

Another wall of trees. Several of them seem to pick up the light and stand out as though they were in the sun but there wasn't any sunshine!

It's a great opportunity for some minimal silhouettes
 I went out a bit later as well at dusk and took these


I think this one captures the moment really well. It's so soft and muted but still has depth to it

I pushed this one in Lightroom to bring out the yellow leaves and try to create a contrast against the trees in the background. It's amazing what can be done as this is not what it looked like but it makes a great a nice shot!
I hope you enjoy these. Let me know what you think in the comments.

More thoughts on Olympus OMD EM1

I was looking through the pictures I had taken with the EM1 today and I found a couple that I liked and thought I'd share.

I've been reviewing my thoughts on this system and It's size especially with one of the Olympus prime lenses is very attractive. Also for my abstract work the shallower depth of field may actually be a benefit. A second camera with a 45mm f1.8 lens may compliment my Ricoh GR really well and give me a little more reach. I'm going to The Photography Show next Monday so hopefully I'll get to have a play with the new EM5 Mkii which looks good.

Gold Leaf

I've just put a new picture called "Gold Leaf" in my Motion Emotion gallery. It's a piece that I created using camera movement and flash to give both blurred and sharp parts to the picture. The leaves have a great sheen to them and seem to nestle in the gold mist created by the movement.

Bending Trees

I created a image called growing towards the light. See it here using freehand movement of the camera. I wanted to revisit this concept with my new Sony A7mkii which I've now had for several months. This time, however, I wanted to use a tripod and 2 heads to give me more consistent movement. This image below is one of the results of that shoot. I had to adjust the various angles of the set up to give me the picture I wanted and this is one of the ones I really like. More thoughts on the Sony A7mkii another time.
I'd love to hear your comments.
