Chillin in the late winter sun…

After three months of almost constant rain i managed to take advantage of a little late winter sun whist having a few days off work. It also gave me the chance to strip off and be at home with nature in the woods.

As much of my self nudes are about being hidden away due to restraints of society, i thought it’d be nice to actually share something a little more relaxed.
With a new Lensbaby fisheye optic in the camera bag i decided to give it a go.

When taking photos i almost always have it in mind to edit them as black and white, it’s a throwback to film days when i used black and white all the time. Although i posted the black and white ones on Flickr, i really like the colour versions. Even at the time of taking i was pretty torn between whether i wanted black and white or colour. I guess it’s one of the bonuses of digital that we get the RAW file to do as we want with.

Just Chillin!

The effect of the fisheye optic creates some distortion as you move away from the centre of the image. Although it means i’m getting this distortion, i don’t think it detracts from the image at all.

Enjoying the late afternoon rays…



About PurpleT

Much of my photography is art and documentary. I try to capture a scene as i see it in my mind, whether that be black and white, colour, or somewhere in between. I try to make an interesting, and/or attractive image from what i see around me, not just what would be expected, but also subjects that would be seen boring, mundane, or ugly by many. But they all have an interest as art photography. I have also spent nearly twenty years working as a life model, then the human figure in art is very important to me, and is something i try to bring into my work at times.
