FLOW Photofest is a biennial international photography festival with exhibitions across the Scottish Highlands & Islands. 2021 is the third time it has been held, this time with the theme of “Legacy”.
Here are two photos that show that getting the conditions right, particularly the light and also the timing, deeply affects the impact of a photo.
In this first example, the light is actually OK. I suspect though that the composition would work so much better if there had been absolutely »
The thought struck me today, like a lightning bolt, that if I am back to blogging again, then I really need to be writing some blog posts!
