Crystal Palace Photography Course – Monsters and Lost Civilizations
Bromley doesn’t immediately come to mind as a great photographic location but the statues are great for trying things out. All these pictures are by beginners using Canon 500Ds and a Nikon D90.
Caroline’s picture is conventional – the gorilla perhaps slightly greyer than the real thing because of the metering. Half a stop of underexposure would have sorted this out – but it was her first pic of the day.
Amazing how a different angle changes the image. Martin’s picture of the same thing has a totally different feel – quizzical, even.
Mark’s picture of the dinosaur is so off centre it suggests it was taken hurriedly, or that the creature was about to move into the frame. Unconventional framing adding drama.
Lovely tones by Rosie – the D90 has done a great job of handling the tones here.
What it lacks in grandeur it makes up for in convenience – free parking, access from the tube and plenty of interesting subjects (even in February) make Crystal Palace Park great for photography courses.
