As I quite enjoyed my last post about revisiting my travel photographs, you can check it out here, I thought I would go back and revisit more of my photography. I’ve been thinking about my photography a bit recently, interviewing various photographers for my photographer interview series and seeing how these amazing photographers edit their work, what their vision is and what inspires them. I’ve also been enjoying the grungier side of photography, so I decided to go back and edit some photographs with a darker edge. Some of the photographs featured in this photo essay appeared in an earlier post, called Headley Heath, Surrey: Photo Essay, but others did not, for one reason or another. All photographs have been edited and cropped with Instagram in mind, so they are cropped to a 1×1 ratio. You can follow me on Instagram here. 

Headley Heath Revisited

Headley Heath Revisited: This photograph was taken early in the morning in late October. The mist shrouded the heath and the woodland, while pockets of light would break occasionally through as the mist slowly dissipated. Photograph Details: 0.4 sec, F11.0, ISO100, 53mm, shot using an Olympus OM-D EM5

This was a photograph I discarded when I first came to look through my work from that October morning photograph mission. I think this demonstrates the value in going back and revisiting your travel photographs, there is always something that you may have missed, or see differently on a given day. Photograph details: 1/6th sec, F9.0, ISO100, 40mm, shot using an Olympus OM-D EM5

Headley Heath Revisited: Another photograph which I had originally discarded. Technically none of my photography is perfect, yet I don’t really mind. Taking the photograph is just part of the process of creating an image. I took this photograph handheld at a relatively low shutter speed (tip: always try to use a tripod). Photograph details: 1/40th sec, F5.2, ISO500, 114mm, shot using an Olympus OM-D EM5

Headley Heath has an abundance of pathways which crisscross the woodland and heathland which allowed me to explore all corners of this beautiful part of Surrey.  Photograph details: 1.6 sec, F11.0, ISO100, 45mm, shot using an Olympus OM-D EM5

Headley Heath Revisited: This tree reminds me of an old man’s foot, worn, well trodden, and a life lived. Photograph details: 1/3th sec, f4.6, ISO100, 66mm, shot using an Olympus OM-D EM5

The mist creates atmosphere, while a thousand fallen leaves create a bed for our feet as walk this path through Headley Heath. Photograph details: 1 sec, F11.0, ISO100, 40mm, shot using an Olympus OM-D EM5
