Today we had a Higher Photography day at the West Highland College at Broadford focusing on studio lighting for still life and portraiture. I have posted some of my better photos from the day including some shots of my old Bronica ETRSi medium format film camera, my sighting compass, a still life with a creel, old wheel and turf spade and a couple of still lifes. I did some of these in both colour and black and white to see how they come across. I also messes around a little with the clarity settings in Lightroom, mainly to try and soften off creases in the backgrounds.
I am an amateur photographer who is also a Chartered Geographer (GIS) with his own part-time consultancy business and I work as an estate manager for a national conservation charity in Scotland. I am based in Lochalsh, Wester Ross, Scotland, just next to the Isle of Skye.
