“Photography is still a very new medium and everything must be tried and dared”.
Bill Brandt
Whatever your particular preference is in photography there are new ways of seeing and doing.
“Man can not discover new oceans unless he has the courage to leave sight of the shore”.
Andre Gide
Why not try something new today?
What is this picture “Brandt homage 3” about to you?
Superficially to me it’s about shapes rather than textures as the key ingredient of the picture.
On a more meaningful level it could be alternatively titled “Workshop No 4 – Closed”
This picture was taken in Saltaire – Yorkshire 100 yds from Brandt’s very famous picture of the wet cobbled ramp. I can’t put a copy of the picture on my blog as I don’t have a copyright reproduction licence. Just Google Bill Brandt for around 500,000 web pages.
Technical stuff – Infrared capture, 16 mm Wide-angle lens on a very dull Tuesday lunch time whilst running a black and white photography masterclass.
A big hello to all the new followers of my little blog.

      Hi Bjorn – I’m glad you like it and find useful. I particularly liked your picture of the London Underground. Andy

    Bill Brandt would like this. It’s just up his street (excuse the pun). I know exactly the image you refer to as well.
