I put down a borrowed Agfa umbrella I was carrying to take this picture. May Agfa rest in peace since its demise. The rain had just stopped this evening. The insurance of carrying an umbrella was not working. As I write this blog post the heating has come on in the middle of June!
I was inspired by two friends of mine with the presentation of this picture Hugh Milsom MFIAP and Tony Worobiec FRPS both have made pictures in this style.
I am often accused over-printing ie too dark, it’s a style you love or hate. So in order to try to keep things fresh and new I tried a high key approach with minimal contrast and a very subtle cool tone.
If you are thinking of coming on “The simple secret of becoming a first class photographer” seminar next Saturday email me pronto as there are only two places remaining.
A big hello to all the new followers of my little blog this week.
