One subject. Five pictures of the Wellington Memorial. How I tell the story of this Memorial as an architectural photographer.
First we have the scene setter. The memorial in its setting. Quite stunning.
Next a different view.
And now a close-up of the subject of the Memorial.
Cropped in tight.
And finally an abstract close-up.
So that is my set of five images, which all sit together nicely.
The problem with the detail shots is that without being one of a set they are almost meaningless. Just a column and some sky. A sculpture. A plaque. The images as a set give meannig to each other.
By the way, I love these detail shots.
Tomorrow I will post the black and white set.
This is a very small example of how photographs tell stories. And portfolios need to be carefully put together. Which is why my new portfolio is taking so long to do. I have missed the deadline I set for myself, in part as I have some new shoots which will add to the content.
But after this weeks shoot I will be drawing a line and making my selection of 30 images.
Back to the set of five architectural photography images of the Wellington Memorial, Stratfield Saye, Hampshire, featured in this post. As I hope you will know by now there will be black and white conversions so to follow, which I will post in the morning. All done using my favourite back and white Lightroom CC plug-in – Nik Silver Efex Pro.
So these five black and white architectural photography images will conclude my Wellington Memorial architectural photographers theme for now. I will know be moving onto a new photographic subject for my next batch of posts, followed by a major series of new Hampshire Photography images.
If you can’t wait for the next post then why not head over to my architectural photography page at www.rickmcevoyphotography.co.uk/architectural-photographer where you can view a selection of my architectural photography in Dorset, Hampshire and London.
