After looking through the hundreds of lovely meadows images that have been entered into our photo competition this year we have finally settled on a winner. So the winner is... Gillian Tyler’s fantastic family shot from their meadow titled ‘A Woodcutter, his Wife and their Dog’.
We felt that this summed up the whole ethos of Pictorial Meadows – making people (and their pets) very happy! Because of this, and its great composition and context, we wish congratulations Gillian and to whoever was the photographer.
Your £100 prize is on it’s way……
Some top tips for Meadow Photography come from AmateurPhotographer.co.uk...
- Trying to capture your shots early in the morning when the dew is heavy. The additional moisture will help add interest and detail to your shots.
- Look for interesting colour combinations. With the high species count and dense growing patterns of a Pictorial Meadow, this job is a bit easier.
- If it's windy you might want to consider adjusting your shutter speed. This can make for some very interesting shots!
- Moving in closer to a particular flower doesn't mean you have to lose the colour of the meadow backdrop. Consider using a softer focus backdrop to add contrast to close up flower photos.
