The “Untitled” Monochrome Talk at Hailsham Photographic Society

Just a quick post to advertise my talk at Hailsham Photographic Society on Thursday 5th Jan 2012. So come along around 7.30pm. It’s a large lively club with lots of good people to learn from. Why not think about joining if you live near by? See their website http://www.hailshamphotographicsociety.co.uk/

This snap was taken at Seaford Head in Sussex looking along the Seven Sisters.  A good day is when the lighting is changing, here the sun came out and illuminated just a part of the cliff. This picture was made by the lighting in the field and a little help from me to darken the surroundings to give it mood and atmosphere. There are three ways of brightening an area in a picture a) brightening b) darken around the area without brightening and c) brightening and darkening around.

All I had to do when taking the picture was a) be there, by being prepared for the long walk with a heavy camera rucksack b) know where to stand and where to point the camera  and c) when to press the button.

That’s the role of the photographer – to put their camera in front of visually interesting subjects and recognise the significant time to press the button. Being a photographer is as simple as that!
