Its rare I post any of my own photographs as I consider myself a technical photographer as opposed to a creative one!
But on Friday I spent my Day at Kew Gardens courtesy of Hasselblad UK. They had booked a conference room and full run of the gardens to simply explore the use of the HTS an architectural / outdoor environment.
Kew Gardens is a vast area in central London - one of the Royal Gardens. At Kew they have several Victorian Green House on a grand scale.
Some images of the day are attached.
What I learnt from the day (for me of course!)
1) You wonder how you coped without the HTS before
2) Manual focussing is much easier than I thought. Very few images were not in perfect focus.
3) Only a few degrees of tilt makes a mile of difference with regards to depth of field
4) Perspective control is great in camera!
5) Creative control adds in no end of possibilities.
So, just a few images... (JPEGs)
