Think James Photo | The Lens Flare School
Pure WheelPure WheelThere something about a white sky that I like about photos. Perhaps is the way I was taught how to use negative space in architecture to affect moods. That puts in in good stead to start applying it in photography. It is always in the back of a photographers mind when they are composing. The more you do it the less you have to think about what you are doing. It just sort of becomes natural to you. I am not sure where I am on that scale but I like to think that it is nearly natural. But if you stop thinking about composition, then what will happen?

The Lens Flare School

When we first got to Kenya we spent the first few mornings introducing ourselves to the students at all of the schools. The whole schools came running out for the presentation, lining up for what we would call an assembly. It was always early morning and our not so fresh faces selves were so nervous and presenting a small bit about each of us.We stood in the centre of this circle with the whole of the girls RC Primary all eagle eyed and ears ready for the listening. I hope even a part of what I said stayed with them. I know the experience will always be with me.

This was one of the times where you know how you are going to process it instantly. Like many of my Kenyan images that I have processed so far, I did not do my normal HDR processing. As I took so many I have developed a Lightroom HDR preset that I am very happy with. I applied it to all 1000 photos that I have selected and for a general Facebook upload they look good. Of course for other photos I will edit them inn my normal, long winded way. Others I will just process in Lightroom with more detail like I did this one.
