GraveyardLight is always a fascination for black and white photographers.

I have said many times in the black and white photography courses  and workshops that I run that back or side lighting is the most beneficial direction for lighting. For the simple and powerful reason that they bring out contrast and texture. As all adherents of the art of monochrome know that these qualities are that which separates it from colour photography.

A big hello to all the new followers of my little blog this week.

    Hi Andy! Is this from our Stanton Drew trip? If it is, it beats anything I have! Excellent shot – the softly focused cross against the pale backdrop works very well – but I also like the vague detail retained in the tombstone to the left. Adrian
