A Flash of Early Morning Light

The Early Morning Light

A Flash of Early Morning Light image

I’m often walking through the City, early in the morning and sometimes the light falls and scatters in just the right way.

In this photograph, I love the way that the light looks like its coming from the street lamp and how it scatters across the tarmac. I love how the traffic cone is framed. But then again, that’s just me…

Yellow Lines – Two Filter Treatments

No Filter

Yellow Lines - original image

I took this photograph above, the other day. It weather was a dull. It was a snatched photograph. It was one of those photographs you have to do something with. Therein lies the dilemma.

I normally use Lightroom to ‘develop’ my photographs and rarely resort to filters but in this case I did.

Direct Positive

The Direct Positive filter gave the image a bit of punch without over-saturating the image – it says Yellow Lines!

Bleach Bypass

The Bleach Bypass filter says more about the day and less about the yellow lines.

I like both images for different reasons. What it comes down to is mood. Not just the mood of what I’m trying to say but how I’m feeling when I’m trying to say it. I feel filters should be a starting point but these cases I went with ‘as is’. However, I’ve been told there’s no substitute for getting right at the point of shooting 😉

This is murpworks!

This is murpworks! mu + rp = works.

murpworks is the creative home of artist mu and writer rp. Together, we make up murpworks (as we go along). mu draws, paints, animates & builds, rp photographs, writes & tries to co-ordinate. There are a whole load of influences – many and varied.

The picture says everything we want it to.

There’s animation in the form of a Walk Cycle, there’s anonymity but also a knowingness, it’s nowhere and everywhere, it’s cluttered but there are clear forms, it’s black and white but appears colourful…

The black and white picture was taken in Warminster, South West UK. It’s location was more quixotic, rather than exotic.

Shadow on the Wall

Shadow on the Wall B+W image

Walking on a sunny day, I pass a shadow on the wall. I return, the shadow’s gone. I can return another day but the shadow will have changed. The angle of the sun will have moved, the leaf pattern from the tree will have changed because it will have grown. It will never be the same again. I like that.
