I have a few Autumn Impressions images from my series in Skye and then some shots taken at The National Arboretum at Westonbirt.

After a very good first week on my PhD, I was keen to start as I mean to go on, in terms of my photographic practice, and do some experimental photography on a weekly basis wherever I am.  So, although I am not in Skye at the moment, I decided that The National Arboretum would be a good place to continue with the intentional camera movement work, in an attempt to capture the essence of the autumn season.

I have to admit to having a really poor shoot by my standards.  I had an immediate panic on arrival as I had left my XQD card in the card reader at home and could not immediately lay my hands on another one.  Eventually I found what I was looking for.  However, not being my usual organised self this set me off on the wrong foot.  Having intended to carry on where I had left off in Skye (with intentional camera movement) within minutes I diverted my attentions elsewhere. I was tempted to try multiple exposure again – a technique that had been very successful when I was working at Loch Cill Chriosd.  I hastily accessed the settings I needed to merge two shots together in camera, and set about under and over exposing shots.  After spending quite a time working on this, I realised in my haste I had not in fact set up the multiple exposure settings properly, so had wasted my time.  I took a couple of shots with the camera set up properly and then the heavens opened and I returned home very wet and dispirited!  I have to say that this wholly unsuccessful shoot is a rare occurrence, but there was no hiding place today.

So, here are the final images from Skye:
