Winter walk in the woods

I was looking back over some photos from this winter and I found a folder with a few pictures that I had somehow forgotten to process! (not quite sure how that happened with my quiet and relaxing life in the mountains!) So a couple of early morning post sessions and here is our winter walk in the woods as well as the Kindergarten race day.

A Lantern Lit Walk in the Woods

Each November the Children from the Nursery and the Kindergarten have a little walk through the woods with Lanterns that the make themselves to commemorate the story of Martin. I suppose that I should know the story by now but I am always too busy taking photographs! It is a lovely little event and one that really brightens up the cold and gloomy November days.

Monochrome Oktober Day 12

Each year I dedicate the month of Oktober (German Spelling, in case you were wondering) to the beautiful art of Black & White photography. Each day I will be posting a new Black & white image

I have a passion for this style of photograph, as it makes you concentrate more on the subject and really brings out the emotion of the image.

In the post processing phase, it is more than just removing the colour out of a picture but finding the right combination of tones and shades of grey that work within an image. With applications such as Photoshop you can change these mixtures to a great degree to give you more or less of those tones.

You can experiment with your photos as I am sure that your smartphone will have an editing section in it (both the iPhone Camera App and the Facebook App do this) and play around with the different settings.

Share your images with everyone by posting them to my facebook page
