INSIGHTFUL MOMENTS, mostly IN MONOCHROME

Welcome to the new combined website. It brings together some of my favourite projects from 'The Intuitive Lens' monochrome photography site and some of my musings related to other matters that, over the years, I've felt compelled to 'whittle on'. I hope you enjoy viewing the site as much as I have enjoyed contributing to it.

On the photographic front, I‘ve always been both attracted and beguiled by the extra impact and sense of mystery that monochrome rendering bestows on an image, so this site is unashamedly somewhat dominated by my continual efforts to capture some of life’s more intriguing moments, in black and white, although there is the occasional forage into the world of colour.

Since I began this journey there's been an explosion in web sites dedicated to equipment reviews; I no longer do that here. However, I very much want to  share here any useful tips and experiences I encounter with whatever gear I am using.

These projects have been shot either on Photographic Workshops, during the course of Masterclasses or as the result of a planned personal project designed around a specific theme. There's really no substitute for the challenge of real photographic projects with proper deadlines. Projects add focus and timescales as well as ambitious photographic objectives. I hope you enjoy.
