Some photos from the week 1-7th January 2018

I started off the New Year continuing my seeming obsession with photographing trees. I decided to give up getting a great photo and just try as many ways of taking images of them as I could. That seems to have led to me trying to find new ways to photograph a lot of things that are very familiar to me, like Kingston Lacy House and Beech Avenue too.

I realised that I hadn’t had time to actually experiment at all with my new Fujifilm XT2 (I’ve taken some photos but I haven’t played with it really) and so I decided that now I can actually get a shallow depth-of-field with a lens I’d try some experiments to see how well it works. These two are part of those experiments. I’ll add the series of images I took in a separate post.
