A little journal from my best trip ever…

A couple of weeks ago I was on a photographic workshop, in Scotland, at the stunning Isle of Arran, with the great landscape photographer Bruce Percy and five other participants. It was a truly fantastic trip!

I have been photographically kind of stuck for a while, with quite a few constraints that I’ve put on myself. This trip took those away, so relieving! Bruce showed me how to edit and still be true to the image and the analogue film photography process. He do nothing to his images that Ansel Adams couldn’t do in his darkroom. As using nothing but ND filters, and the editing in Photoshop is just cropping, dodging and burning, increase or decrease contrast and dust removing.

And he also gave me a completely “new” light to use! A light that I earlier didn’t use at all, it felt so grey and kind of dead. Was I wrong, or what!!   🙂

Thanks Bruce, I feel so full of new inspiration!

In this post I show you two images, but please also visit my new gallery page, Isle of Arran, where I show you more images.

Enjoy!  🙂

    • Thank you Alexander!
      It feels like I learned everything! I’ve got a quite new way to look at both weather, composition and editing. And still be true to my loved analogue process. New inspiration en masse! 😊

  1. Oh Joy! Wonderful images Marie and to be on a workshop with such a great photographer as Bruce Percy must have been inspiring. Great location by the way….so I am off to look at the gallery. Hope you have a great week. Best regards, James
