Here we have it. The photographic culmination of one of the most wonderful weekend of my life. I popped down to my old School , Monkton, in Bath UK and for a friends 21st and just had a wonderful time. I had to get back to Bournemouth for church and this is what said by to me a Fabulously freezing Freshford.
This is just some of the trees as you look up in the forest and then boosted contrast makes the whole thing really dark and contrasty…
This concludes the Ringwood forest series… Please do go through and tell me what you think of them and leave lots of helpful and even constructive criticism.
There is two main aspects that are consistent with this series,
- Black and White
- Forest and trees
I have tried to display a few different ways of taking pictures in a Forrest and i hope that it has helped you see what is possible.
Tell me which one you like the most…
The first thing that sprang to mind for this one was a nuclear aftermath. It looks like some of the trees have been flattened or also like the trees that have been flattened after St Helens Exploded.
Again this is solarised and intentionally quite sinister and dark looking.
Is it too strong or grey??
Here is number two in the series sorry that it was not posted yesterday… Was very busy…
Its got quite a sinister feeling to it and its basically been solarized by the photoshop filter looks like it could be out of a horror movie…
I like the contrast between dark trees and the light ground… the original.. was quite dark and this was another take on the forest.
This is some thick kenyan kikuyu grass that was taking in nairobi in my lovely home. The sun was setting and it was rather nice as the green grass created a filter effect.
I added a gausian blur and then merged the two layers with the multiply function in Photoshop. I also added a subtle lense flare as it complimented the current one.
This is a lovely shot of a friends son that was loving playing in the long grass by Hengistbury Head in Bournemouth. The Labrador was also really enjoying bounding through the long grass…
