Lazy, Lazy, Lazy!
So without further ado I hit the streets this morning, (frosty,windy,minus 2), and headed for Warrens Hall Park, a bit of the green stuff about half a mile from the town.
It’s Sunday, so by 9.00 am the place was overun with dogs and their walkers, frisbee chucking urchins, fishermen, twitchers, joggers and mountain-bikers…plus two guys under a tree in a single sleeping bag surrounded by 27 empty cans of Tennants super strength lager, (I counted)…I didn’t look too closely but I think I went to school with one of them.
Luckily I arrived at eight, so with the exception of the lager specialists, I was alone for a good half hour.
The light was average..not good, not bad..but for black and white I hoped I could get something worth the shoe leather. I used my trusty Manfrotto compact tripod, stopped down to F22, set the iso as low as it would go, and used shutter speeds of between 1/4 sec and 1.5 secs.
I’ve cropped in Photoshop to get the wide format as I though it suited the images and I’ve tweaked the curves a little.
