EYV Exercise 3.3


Find a good viewpoint, perhaps fairly high up where you can see a wide view or panorama. Start by looking at the things closest to you in the foreground. Then pay attention to the details in the middle distance and, finally, the things towards the horizon. Now try and see the whole landscape together, from the foreground to horizon (you can move your eyes). Include the sky in your observation and try to see the whole visual field together, all in movement (there is always some movement). When you’ve got it, raise your camera and take a picture. Add the picture and a description of the process to your learning log.



This is a long exposure shot (24mm, f20, ISO50, 30sec) looking over residential properties at Chelsea Harbour in London. It’s a particular interesting image to me because in the foreground you can see the gentle movement of the boats moored in the harbour. In the middle ground you have the Thames behind the buildings. In this shot you can see lights of a boat moving down the river. In the background you have the dark sky. Unfortunately it was a cloudy night so it was not possible to capture the movement of the planes coming into Heathrow airport.
