Italians showcase Anthony’s talent.

By News No Comments

Italian photography magazine FOTOGRAFI have published a two page feature illustrating the work of club member Anthony Gosling. They have used two of Anthony’s images to explain to their readers the beauty and technical quality of his architectural photography. Anthony was pleasantly surprised with the publication which picked up on his Flickr account “For me, getting some recognition for what we photographers do no matter how big or small that may be is always a satisfying feeling and as a club we must get our images out there! whether it be the local paper, one of the many online photo sharing sites or a print down the local pub, lets share them with the world and you never know what we might achieve!!”

A translation from the Italian ……on the more symmetrical skyscraper image “The very bright sky looks like if it is about to impinge upon the upper part of the building, but the author has managed to preserve the highlights. In cases like this you need to correct the histogram, use the “Raw” processing tools and, if necessary, adjust the contrast. The wide-angle and the symmetrical composition has created an enclosed effect. Reflections have a strong graphic impact, but from a technical aspect require great attention to exposure and focus; here the subject and its reflected image blend perfectly.”

On the One Angel Square image….”The clouds seem to replace the fumes of these hypothetical smokestacks. When photographing the sky, the clouds are an element of the composition hence place them in line with your expressive intent. In this image we can appreciate the management of the light that enhances this futuristic architecture. The wide-angle focal length and the closed framing accentuate the vanishing point. In the presence of glass and steel architecture, look for an angle which enhances the reflections. And remember that in photography the subject is reproduced not for the light that hits it but for that which it reflects.

Well done Anthony, great to see your work get the commendation it deserves.
