Photography and art: Autumn sun
The dark cloudy days mean higher temperatures and lower heating bills, but it’s not good light for photography. We had some sunshine on Sunday and so I was out in the wilds making the most of it. I photographed the canal and the sun kept going behind a black cloud. I was about to move on when I saw it shining through the bridge and moved closer for this shot. Perhaps, my best one of the day…
For the benefit of local readers, that’s near Furnace Parade in Tipton. The trains were running past, behind those trees.
This was sunny West Bromwich, High Street. I had lots of problems with the shadows, but it made a change to have the white balance on the camera set for sunny. I also had a higher ISO setting than usual. This was with a narrow aperture, but it was still fast enough to avoid blurring the passing vehicles.
This is West Bromwich registry office where people get married. I wouldn’t fancy doing wedding photography with all those trees casting shadows.
I took this shot of the registry Office around the back and did an artistic edit on it. I gave it a gradient frame in PhotoScape and blurred the background.
This is inside the iconic Public arts gallery in West Bromwich. It cost over 70 millions and as you can see it was packed…They did have summer exhibitions though, which was a good idea.
Back in Wednesbury, I took this photo and added a gradient frame and some text when I edited it. I think it looks quite artistic.
What do you think of today’s pictures? There are more pictures today on a Zillion Ideas. I looked more at the art in that feature, which I think should be inclusive and for the people.You can share your thoughts in the comments box or follow me on Twitter for updates.
