I thought it was about time I shared something that wasn’t so much to do with sport and action! I’ve just started another photography course, so I’m trying to push my comfort boundaries – this week our homework focused on composition. We were given a set of criteria; for example –  symmetry, abstraction, a frame within a frame, subject moving out of frame, geometrical shapes that draw you in – to name a few. All of the pictures had to be of the same subject or location, and I chose Preston Park in Brighton, as it’s quite close to where I live. 

I hope that everyone enjoys these and please don’t judge too harshly as it’s the first time I’ve really attempted something like this! I kept to black and white to try and focus more on the shapes and composition of the picture.

For any of those that are interested in doing photography classes in Brighton, I can’t recommend Natasha Lythgoe enough – she runs both beginner and intermediate classes, and is a brilliant teacher. Here’s the link to her website:

Thanks for taking the time to look at this post, hopefully there will be more to follow soon!

  1. I like the litter bin one: perfectly timed as the person was in frame; and the long tree branch, and the ones with the circular pathstones in. The path/bridge (?) to the building has a book cover feel to it (if and when I ever write one, can I use it?!) xxx
