There are constraints and there are limitations.
The constraint in this image is using an iPhone with a fixed lens. Normally I would get closer and there was no fence to prevent me but there was a sign pointing out the risk of spreading diseases between vines and asking people to stay back. It’s a limitation but I accept that as the price for enjoying the occasional glass of wine from my local vineyard…
Time is a limitation too. In a week or so, the nets will be removed as the grapes are picked. Next year I will be back with a longer lens.
No, I haven’t decided to start providing financial advice but I have been looking at lots of whiteboards, plans and proposals lately. The benefit is that pays for gear, books and the occasional workshop… It just doesn’t provide time.
I wanted a dark, moody portrait to reflect the recent weather and after 20 minutes swearing at my remote flash trigger , this happened. Main light is best described as a donut shaped soft box placed at eye level. It’s an easy set up for when a real person comes along…
A chance encounter hanging out the washing. Classic rule of thirds composition because it worked.
I revisited at a different time of day, reframed the composition and reinterpreted the same elements from a slightly different position to my last post.
