For reasons that still remain unclear to me, I set myself the challenge of chosing one photograph from all those I managed to take on each day in March 2016 - a photograph that I would be confident to publish online.
But then the problems entered the scene. I would be using a full-frame DSLR with a 50mm prime lens, combined weight of 2.2 kilograms. So no impulsive stuff; and only zooming with my feet. Also, Falmouth has one of the largest populations of photography students in Europe, certainly on a per capita basis. So there was the added challenge of, "oh, every student's seen that...". Caution would reign over the shutter release, though there would always be a stark need to produce an image.
Then there were decisions to be made about image processing - what do I allow? Should it all be hand-held? Should it all be available light? And how much information do I provide in the caption?
Time resolved these issues - except for the biggest problem - taking the photographs in the first place, especially on rainy days... (hide)
