  1. 1. Marc Adamus Marc Adamus has taken these photographs of the landscape. He uses the skylight and sun to contrast with main focuses of the imagewhich in the left and right images really makes a good effect. With the bright background and a darker focus point, it really puts all the focus on what Marc Adamus is trying to make stand out. The sky as the background in the image to the right really sets the atmosphere making it look abandoned. I also really like how the sky on the photo on the left reflects onto the ground. Marc Adamus waits all day for the sun to set to then take the photograph to get the best image. With the sun setting behind the mountains it puts focus on the water with the sun reflecting on it. The photo to the left looks as if its been modified to make the sky look more vivid and stand out, it also makes the person standing there stand out more. I think that the main focus points of Marc Adamus’ photos are always contrasting to their backgrounds or surroundings. He tends to make his photos look very dramatic by having the sun set in the background and the orange glow that it gives on the scene. On the image to the left there are two things that are on the hot points of the camera. The person and the sun are both on hot points with the vanishing line of the earth and the sky being almost invisible as the sky reflects onto the floor. The image of the tree leaves it looking dominating as the camera angle is looking up to the tree. The white of the plants contrasts with the greens and with the trees in all the plant images it gives this dominating effect as if they are taking over.
  2. 2. Adam Burton These are photographs taken by Adam Burton. I like these photos as they are simple yet very effective. He uses the sky and background to put focus on the object or what ever is in front. In most of his photos he uses the background to contrast and put focus on whatever's in front. For example, the second image in the blue, bright sky makes the blueness of the ice stand out as well, contrasting with the white ice and dark rocks. The last photograph with the white, light sky makes the dark, black tree stand out in the image and makes it the main focus. The mist of the image gives it a dreamlike atmosphere, in both the last and first image. Adam Burton waits for the sun to set or the light to set the atmosphere of the image then takes the photo. The second image looks as if its been edited to increase the contrast, making the colours stand out more such as the blacks, whites and blues. On the other hand, the other two images look as if they haven't been manipulated and the photographer has depended on the light and then taken the photograph. The source of light on these photos is from the sun and sky. This is used for dramatic effect and to make the focus of the image stand out more. I like these photographs as they are natural and don’t look as if they have been manipulated too much. The photographer, Adam Burton just depends on the sun and source of light for the effects in his photos. On the image to the left he has used a low-medium aperture which puts the focus on the one pebble at the front although you can still see the detail in the background.
  3. 3. Adam Burton In these photos Adam Burton uses the hot points of the camera to put focus onto the main subjects of the photos and by slightly blurring the background on the photo to the left, putting focus onto the subject is also done by just getting up close and the mist is used to blur the surroundings. I like how the image on the left has these now strong tall trees in the woods, yet there's this one focal point where the tree’s life has ended.
  4. 4. Tim Parkin These photographs have been taken by Tim Parkin. He does very up close photos which are detailed and opposed to other photographers that use the skylight for the lighting and the background used to contrast with the main focus, Tim Parkin just uses natural daylight and reflection with the close up image as the main focus. The middle image looks as if its been merged with another photo or is taken through a frosty window or with snow covering it. This puts the focus on the leaves and what you can actually see through gaps which is another technique that Tim Parkin uses. As all of the images are very natural and close up, all of them look untouched and not edited in any way. The first image on the left looks as if the background has been darkened and the foreground has the contrast increased to make the bright reds of the flowers stand out more and become more vivid. The reflection of the sky on the water on the right image makes it stand out, with the white purity of the ice contrasting with the dark background. This also could have been don’t by using a high shutter speed which would allow a lot of the natural light to flood into the lens that’s behind the hills, even though its getting dark. Overall I think that these photographs are good as they are unique and different to other photographers, I like how they are just natural and unedited, which reflects the natural nature within the photos.
