We visited Margam Lake followed by Margam Park and walked around looking for things to photograph, but most importantly just enjoyed the day. I took a detour up the mountain, and seen some lovely scenery.
Sometimes you visit a place that you’ve visited so many times before, you find it hard to photograph, and today was one of those days. I went because it was good to be with the group, but found it hard to get motivated for photography. That shows as I only took 57 actual images (I say actual as I shot bracketed film simulations which takes three images at a time for most of the time). And of those images, 7 were of people, so really not a lot for me. Those who know be, know I love taking photos, and looking for different compositions. This shoot was hard!
All images straight from camera except some straightening and the occasional crop. As usual all images captured on the X-T3, combined with the Viltrox 23mm F/1.4. Most images taken using the combination of Acros+R, Velvia and Classic Chrome, where as the more contrasting monochrome images were shot using MGA Leica Mono V3.
It’s funny, but people always say to me, “how can you just use a 23mm prime lens, don’t you miss too many shots?”. Well, no, I never miss the shots I want with that lens. I’ve never once thought that I wished I had a longer lens or zoom lens on. I choose the lens or lenses I want to use beforehand, with a particular style of photography in mind, and that’s what gives me thrill and enjoyment.
Until next time! Thank you for your time.
