Pond’s Forge

Pond's Forge Title: Pond’s Forge
Location: Sheffield, South Yorkshire
Camera: Canon EOS 600 / Sigma 21-35mm EF
Film: Ilford FP4 125
Notes: The striking circular railings contrast with the straight lines of the windows. A low viewpoint has emphasised their effect, and the inclusion of the bicycle adds scale to the picture. This was one of the 15 images I used to gain my ARPS distinction in 1999.

Paris Chic

Paris Chic Title: Paris Chic
Location: Les Halles, Paris
Camera: Canon EOS 650 / Canon 35-70mm EF
Film: Ilford FP4 125
Notes: The lady walked down the steps at just the right time to add some human interest in this picture. I wanted to contrast the straight lines of the steps with the curve of the canopy above. This was one of the 15 images I used to gain my ARPS distinction in 1999.
