Intimate landscapes – a guide to photographing details in nature


In this difficult time the effects of staying indoors, being off work, alone and without contact is bound to impact everyone in different ways. I talk a lot about the effect of nature on our health - both physically and mentally.

So I was thinking this morning, what use can I be to anyone in this current situation?

I was thinking about it whilst out in my garden in this incredible sunshine we have today, photographing some heather sparkling in the early morning light. I have some new gear to try out thanks to Ffordes Photographic and its given me a new lease of life when photographing details within nature.

So I am going to do a series of posts giving you ideas and showing you how to photograph the small things. The things you will hopefully find in your garden! The best way to relieve stress and is to focus, notice the small things, appreciate the light and create!I am running this on Facebook and will be updating this blog as well with a series of short posts about how and my tips and hopefully it will inspire you to do your own. Please feel free to share your images on my Facebook page!
