Spring has sprung at last

I took myself off out yesterday morning, hunting for suitable portrait locations and how the light plays out on a sunny morning and discovered that pretty much overnight, spring has sprung. One of my local parks…well actually it is two parks…Gildredge and Manor Park, was in it’s full glory with every tree packed with blossom, and the flower beds full of bluebells and plenty of buds and shoots coming up.

Well my mission was accomplished, these two locations seem to be ideal for family portraits and I look forward to capturing some portraits here soon



Failed sunset

Having recently shot a truly epic sunset up at Beachy Head, it inspired me to organise a couple of portrait shoots up there. I could just imagine the glorious golden sun backlighting the subject and giving them a nice hairlight with a little bit of fill flash to light up the face which would have been in shadow. Two people jumped at the chance to shoot with me so it was all arranged.

Then disaster…. Britain’s warm spring weather was cut short and back we went to cold rain!

But not to be put off we did manage to get a few shots, just not quite what we had planned! https://www.howardwiddison.co.uk
