Just chillin’ in the sun.

We stopped at Monsal Head, in the Derbyshire Peak District, for a few minutes whilst on a day out with cameras. It was very busy so we had the chance for a bit of street style photography.

I’ve taken a slight departure from my usual processing with this one. I’m usually thinking black and white but i’ve been experimenting with colour a bit recently. I’m quite liking this old film type of look. It’s come about from trying out the art filters in the camera, Lumix GX8, a few of which i find really nice when used for the right photos. Using filters and/or creating a film look is a bit of an ‘in thing’ at the moment, but that shouldn’t matter as it’s all about creating a look that works with a particular image.

I may have to do a post going deeper into my thoughts on this…

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.
