Project 52 ... 25

Meet Glyn...

I have only known Glyn for about a year or so. We met through our mutual passion for photography, the big difference being that Glyn gets to do it all day everyday! He is a gifted and talented photographer and his pictures are excellent. He is also a nice guy too!

He led the Scott Kelby Photowalk last year in Windsor and is doing the same this year in Guildford. I am on the list and looking forward to it! You can see some of his fantastic work here.

This shot was taken in one of the covered entrances in Eton a few weeks ago. Eton is a great place for location portraits as there are not too many tourists and just enough people wandering around with a camera for you to not stand out. The photo is the result of a technique Glyn showed me on the day. When the sun is harsh, find an area that is shaded with a top cover, with your subject in the shade, the light bounces around and they are in a sort of softbox, then use the exposure compensation mode and over expose a stop or two until you get the desired effect. It is all done with ambient light. And nobody used strobes...
