“I don’t take a photograph, I Capture a Moment, The Decisive Moment”. Henri Cartier-Bresson photographer of Magnum Photos.

"Photography is not like painting," Cartier-Bresson told The Washington Post in 1957. "There is a creative fraction of a second when you are taking a picture. Your eye must see a composition or an expression that life itself offers you, and you must know with intuition when to click the camera. That is the moment the photographer is creative," he said. "Oop! The Moment! Once you miss it, it is gone forever."

Portree on the Isle of Skye

The Isle of Skye at the small town of Portree. There is this lovely little row of buildings that run along the harbor edge, painted in different colours. This view of them was taken from a high advantage point showing the reflection of the colours in the water. 

Art Photography used in vacant shop window

Image
Art Photography used to cover vacant shop windows in hight street. This is a great idea. So, instead of having an empty shop window with no displays in a vacant shop, and there are quite a few of those around in the high streets these days, use a photograph to cover the whole area of the window.I was approached and asked if a photograph I had taken and published could be used to the job in Yarm High street by Visit Yarm.co.uk, I was happy to oblige.

So, here it is and I think it looks great, certainly better than having an empty shop window and gosh, they have even given me a credit line.

Wedding couple pose for Photographs

Image
Having photographed the wedding ceremony and the guests had congratulated the newlyweds. I asked if the wedding couple would like to pose for some photographs in the garden at the Bowburn Hall. Having checked out the gardens I already knew where I wanted the couple to pose. At this time of year, the sun is quite low and thought this would be useful to me and shoot into the sun in order to create sunbursts. With a fill-in flash set low and my exposer set so as not to burn out the highlights. I took several photographs.
