Rampant Red

I'm always looking for projects and ideas to inspire some photography, and one of the basic ones is to set a brief such as today's - Red. Red is a very dynamic colour and it shouldn't be too difficult to find lots of red subjects. This can be a useful exercise for beginners in particular, but any of us could set ourselves a task, perhaps even with a time limit such as "photograph 10 images including the colour red within one 30 minute slot" - we've done this sort of thing as a camera club and it can be useful.

Back to my Rampant Red and here's my selection, but I have allowed myself the whole of the year 2016 to select the images from.....

The Pentax and the Butterfly

I always carry my trusty Pentax MX-1, probably the best compact camera that I have ever used. It is staggeringly useful in terms of functions, not too large or heavy and sturdily made. It also has a great lens, the SMC Pentax 8-25mm f/1.8-2.5, comple...

Historic Tyldesley - Frank's Cafe and More!

There was a cafe in this building for many years, well loved by local people and run by Frank and his wife. Eventually, of course, Frank retired and the building has been under restoration for some time now. If you look on YouTube one of the urban ex...

Historic Tyldesley - The Technical College

Absolutely true.

I stated creating specific colour pallete, impressionist painterly photos as part of an essay of work from a bus stop shelter last year. I especially love red and yellow..! I'm gradually sharing some of those in Ephotozine now. Only a few so far as I've not been on the website for long. I became aware that some of the images worked best in black and white and others in colour. Playing with colour pallete reflections as well.
I then discovered the wonderful work of "Colourists" Saul Leiter and other American and Canadian photographers like Fred Herzog, Ernst Hass and William Eggleston which beautifully validated things for me.
