Photo Locations05/12/2012 - 1:04 AM
There is a little corner of ePz called Photo Locations, oddly enough you can find locations to photograph there. The locations do not appear there by magic, each one has been lovingly contributed by members of this photographic community.
Its alright, but what the hell happened to Norfolk? Does nobody visit? I know some of you do, but at present there are very few locations in Norfolk which are promoted.
So, like an idiot, i kinda publicly vowed to make it my mission to fill the gap.
Within half an hour the enormity of the task really hit me, it is a big task, it involves taking great images of iconic and the not so well known locations in Norfolk. There are many to choose from, that is not the issue, i will be spoilt for choice.
But now i have vowed to do this, publicly, i know i have to deliver some stunning images now and then to contribute to Photo Locations (main menu, hover over Inspiration and click Photo Locations, its easy to navigate to). Am i even up to it? Landscapes are not my forte, i have got lucky with maybe one or two images but thats about it, ii have never waited around for a few hours while the light changes, well, actually i have, but not very often!
As i mentioned, the locations will be easy to choose. I have several villages on my list, as well as market towns, unusual, off the beaten track locations, beauty spots etc. My hometown, while not technically in Norfolk, will get its own pin in the map here as well, though i have dozens of images to choose from already, however i do need to update my town image collection to reflect the diversity which is now here in big amounts, should make it interesting.
I have already began to add locations, my first one being in Peterborugh of alll places. My other one is the Lavender Fields of Heacham, both with old images, so apologies for that. I have submitted another entry tonight, at a location near Thetford, at Lynford Hall, again using old images.
New images will have to proceed, images without me in them at least, this isn't some self promotional thing, and i wont even appear in any new images shot specifically for this project, i dont need to be in shot, not all of them anyway
It is a daunting prospect, make no bones about that. The review itself flows naturally, the same cannot be said for my landscapes
