Photographs by Evan J. Hughes


A selection of some of my photographs. Click on the images to see a larger version (low-res still though for the web). All the photos look great at A4, and most will go bigger and still look really good (and of course printed without the large copyright symbol!).


 
 

Magic Mushroom

Fuji F10 Zoom, 6.3MP, ISO 80, F/3.7, 1/87 sec, 63mm equiv. focal length

A "modified" close-up shot of a mushroom nestling in the grass. The original colours were quite dull, but looked more interesting after some manipulation.

I Spy...

Olympus mju mini digital, 4MP, ISO 320, F/4.9, 1/60 sec, 72mm equiv. focal length

The Griffon Vulture was at an Eagle sanctuary in France. It had had a good fly around already that day, and was looking for a snack!

Into The Light

Fuji F10 Zoom, 3.1MP, ISO 1600, F/3.4, 1/4 sec, 54mm equiv. focal length

The girls were transfixed by the TV (SpongeBob SquarePants) and had the main light off. I managed to take this one before they spotted me and began pulling funny faces. I was chuffed to have managed to hold the camera still for the 1/4 second while the shutter was open, and also glad that the children stayed still too! The original photograph is in colour, but looked much better in black and white.

Harvest

Olympus mju mini digital, 4MP, ISO 64, F/10, 1/160 sec, 36mm equiv. focal length

A shot taken at a roadside picnic spot in France. The simple symmetry and contrast of the field and the sky make for an interesting composure.

Freshwater Sunset

Fuji F10 Zoom, 3.1MP, ISO 100, F/4.9, 1/40 sec, 36mm equiv. focal length

A shot taken at Freshwater West beach in Pembrokeshire, Wales. The sunset, rolling waves, and receeding waves make interesting texture and refelections.

Going Home

Fuji F10 Zoom, 3.1MP, ISO 200, F/4.9, 1/200 sec, 99mm equiv. focal length

A shot taken at Broad Haven beach (Bosherston) in South Pembrokeshire, Wales. The partial silhouette and refelections from the wet sand make an interesting composition. The image was centralised roughly about her feet, giving a centralised composition to help convey a sense of calm. The image was cropped so may not be so crisp if printed larger than A4.

Lac de St. Pardoux

Olympus mju mini digital, 4MP, ISO 64, F/10, 1/160 sec, 36mm equiv. focal length

The sunset was captured while camping next to the lake in France. The fern in the foreground gives a nice diagonal element to lead the eye into the scene, whilst also being sillouetted against the setting sun.

Fancy Dress Cactus

Olympus mju mini digital, 4MP, ISO 64, F/3.5, 1/100 sec, 36mm equiv. focal length

Captured in Le Langon, France, this fire hydrant just took my fancy. The red paint next to the green plant behind it seemed a nice contrast and sparked allsorts of fun ideas. I thought there must be something really green inside the red, waiting to jump out on the unsuspecting traveller!

One Last Time

Fuji F10 Zoom, 3.1MP, ISO 100, F/4.9, 1/125 sec, 36mm equiv. focal length

Another shot taken at Freshwater West beach in Pembrokeshire, Wales. The surfer wading out into the tide, with the incomming wave breaking up his leg adds an interesting counterpoint to the sunset.

Mill Stones

Olympus mju mini digital, 4MP, ISO 64, F/3.6, 1/40 sec, 36mm equiv. focal length

The texture and shapes of the stones on this old mill building in Estaing, Pyrenees, France are fascinating. I converted the original colour image to black and white to focus attention onto the shapes and patterns of the stones.
