Brighton – An Unexpected Journey

The intention behind this series was to create a simple documentary of a day out, but to shoot the photos from a kneeling position. Using a crutch makes photography difficult to do whilst standing up, so I thought I could make use of the need to kneel by exploring the altered perspective. I will write a further post to write about what I’ve learned about this, and to discuss the difficulties I’ve had with white balance and digital developing.

Of note, I felt reasonably comfortable whilst making the street photography for this series, which is an unusual experience for me.

  1. Kneeling does give a different perspective, doesn’t it? Although your kneeling is close to my standing! Brighton beach looks crowded, that’s my idea of hell. I’m glad you had a good day out Richard, a change is as good as a rest and all that.

  2. The subject of positioning came up in another ‘conversation’ I had recently. It made me change my position when clicking away. I do like these photos for many reasons. They make me smile. They are happy photos.

  3. Looks like a great day and some good images to record it. I am always impressed with the photographs the grandchildren take, precisely because they have this “kneeling” angle of view I think.
