This month, I am taking inspiration from the woodlands during the bluebell season, mid- April to early May.
This bluebell area is one of the landscapes featured in a book that I am creating for a local family.
I love the lighting early in the morning and late afternoon - especially the way it casts a different shade of blue on the bluebells. I tend to go for backlighting so the light is more controllable.
My favourite lens to use is my trusted Nikon 70-200mm. There is a tranquility amongst the bluebells that I don’t feel at any other times of the year and a wonderful scent which is more prominent in the morning. As a result, the families I photograph always manage to engage with the setting and feel at ease.
