Another set of images submitted to an British Photographic Exhibitions Salon (national), this time to the Costwold Salon of Monochrome Photography. I have recently been getting more into monochrome, and am enjoying trying to create a few more artistic black and whites. Lets see whether the judges agree with my selection.

During the spring, summer and autumn months I run photographic workshops for Going Digital, which limits the amount of time I have available to go out and take good competition images. This time however, I managed to combine the two and took a group of students out of Fountains Abbey to this little ivy covered cottage just outside the gates. We spent a good 45 minutes working out angles and the different compositions for this location. I think everyone came away with something useful.
Shooting in infrared has provided this image with a different feel, where all the green foliage has been captured as white. I just wish the sky had not been overcast and instead had been captured as black. I guess I will have more opportunities later this year.
