I had a few errands to run in Saffron Waldon this afternoon so I took my camera along for the ride, plus the lens I’m using this month for my prime lens project. I didn’t have any clear idea about what I was going to photograph so rather than restricting myself to a particular subject I plumped for a single aperture – f1.8.
When I visited St Mary’s Church my choice of aperture turned out to be a particularly good one as the lights were out and the sun was sinking fast towards the horizon. I still found some subjects and was especially taken with the pool of late afternoon sunshine catching the lamps in the choir.
Rather than editing my photos from this shoot in a consistent way, as I often do, I’ve gone with whatever felt right, be it colour or monochrome. While some work with the colour extracted, others just seemed to lose something when converted to mono.
