Last night I spent time out in the field hoping to capture some images of the Cuillin Ridge lit by moonlight but unfortunately the light of the half moon was not enough to light up the ridge in the way that I had hoped. I will need to return at full moon which unfortunately will not occur until after the hand-in date. Nonetheless, revealing aspects of the natural world through the use of natural and artificial light is something I wish to continue to do as part of my Final Major Project.
I also returned to Loch Cill Chriosd to photograph the reeds lit with an artificial light source. I am really pleased with these shots as having removed the distracting features around this clump of reeds I have revealed only the tender stems of spring and their reflections.
Here are a couple of my efforts:
I intend to include these two images in my Work in Progress Portfolio not only because I like the images and the strategy of reduction I have used, but also because they will increase the number of dark images in my portfolio, along with the lone tree, that will give tonal balance to the portfolio as a whole.
