None Shall Pass

I’m presently getting a bank of new pictures ready for when I can begin competing for my EFIAP Silver level. None Shall Pass has been created from a studio shot of a brilliant young model, Emily, and a background from Southwell Workhouse. It was a productive day in the studio and there are, hopefully, a few more images in the pipeline.None Shall Pass

Today, I’m practising split-toning. This one is done in Lightroom, with quite a light touch (a new discipline for me!). It hasn’t had any sharpening applied, which, I think, keeps it on the ethereal side.

5th Greek Photographic Circuit

18 acceptances from the 5th Greek Photographic Circuit, with The Sorceress continuing its run of awards with a Diploma 3; three new images got their first acceptances – The Seventh Veil, Great Heron Taking Off and Male Bearded Tit; and four fairly recent images also did well – Study in Red, Trinity, Medusa and Regrets. Happy with that, as they say.
