Closer Still(s) | PT.I | 35:Chronicle

35mm, black & white, close-up, colour, nature, photography

Artistic Licence, Perhaps?


Maybe I’m leaning on it a little but then, maybe not. We all use different filters on our glass to achieve certain effects or, to eliminate others so, why not a close-up filter? The only real issue I’ve had with shooting close with a 35 is blocking my own light for my subject, which is easily overcome by using an indoor set-up for shooting subjects in this way. Outdoors, it can be more than possible to shoot close with good posture discipline or a tripod of some description (in which case, minimum ISO should always be considered for still subjects) and, having the ability to move away from the light-source (typically the sun) if it’s possible to keep your subject in-frame in a way that you’d wish to capture it. It’s not always possible to find success this way but, it can happen more often than not, I’ve found.

Here are just a few different subjects shot both indoors with a controlled set-up – and, outdoors. I hope you like them.

Frost Bites | 35:Chronicle

35mm, close-up, colour, nature, photography, winter

Before the Thaw.


As the sun rose over the back of the house, much earlier than I it should be noted, I had around twenty minutes with my camera with which to make a few frames of the frost. On an old wooden table, a space reserved for the birds where they can feed in safety, behind the high fence and out of sight of looming sparrowhawks searching for a warm breakfast, lay these miniature terracotta and stone pots, bitten, chipped and cracked by previous cold-snaps, still wearing their frozen yet fragile crowns. But, they wouldn’t for long. Winter can be as delicate as it can be hard, it seems.
