Blackpool - The Roller Coaster
A photo that I took early one morning a few months ago but never got around to posting here on Aminus3 despite the fact that it's one of my personal favourites and indicative of the kind of photo that increasingly gives me the most pleasure and personal satisfaction.....I think it's that contrast between the natural landscape and man's influence upon it that I find so interesting.
In this photo, Blackpool's famous roller coaster is the backdrop for a rain soaked and rather bleak but beautiful beach.
This new camera (and lens) I've been using for the last few months is water resistant which has allowed me to start taking photos that I couldn't have attempted with my previous camera for fear of damaging it.
It was raining so much that the D700 was dripping with water after taking this photo and I've used it several times since then in similar weather without mishap.
An Open Invitation:
On Tuesday 12 October I'll be giving a talk to North Cheshire Photographic Society about my photos: NCPS Syllabus
For the first hour I'll be showing lots of my own photos using a digital projector and discussing the work of photographers like our own Hugo Poon, and John Leech who first showed me that photography could be an art form, as well as the work of iconic photographers like Michael Kenna
In the final 30 minutes of the talk I'm going to be discussing basic tips on photographic composition.
I realise that most of you live a long way away but anyone who would like to come will be made very welcome!
