Salford, 25th February 2017
I’m feeling rather happy today.
There’s a reason for this. As people know, I’ve been participating in photography classes whilst I get back on my feet
The classes take place at the Brain & Spinal injury centre off Eccles New Road, close by to the Neurological wing at Salford Royal Hospital (Hope)
I used my Sony Cybershot in the session – and the class put together a series of shots which (I thought) would look good on the screen.
Some came out blurry, whilst some – didn’t come out at all
I did this test shot, to make sure my camera was working with the lens filter. I quite like it, as it looked like it was snowing indoors!
eventually though – the lights began to appear through the lens. Having thrown the image off focus – the effect was finalised using a photoshop filter – glowing edges which created the colourfully lit bubbles rising from the teacup.
I was looking for rainbows today – and they appeared – thanks to a little bokeh magic.
I celebrated my achievement with a plate of scotch pancakes….but there will be more like this soon, so watch this space.
