Radiosity, luminance and reflection: Radiance lighting shop

pano_radiance_1500px

I was lucky enough to be asked to shoot this wonderful shop in nearby Hebden Bridge: I’ve had a soft spot for Radiance since I moved to the area. The owner, Hannah Nunn, designs & produces internationally acclaimed lighting on the premises, and also stocks a wide range of contemporary lights, craft and homewares from other designers. I urge you to visit the shop’s website and have a closer look at what’s on sale.

Shooting the shop in the evening gave due prominence to the stunning range of products against the dark canvas of Market Street outside: a warm oasis of light on a winter’s night. I shot five exposures in RAW and tone-mapped them to fully capture the wide dynamic range of the light and contrast, and the result is exquisite!

Feeding the horses at Lumb Bank, near Heptonstall

This is the sight at Lumb Bank which greeted me when I went with friends to feed their horses in the nearby fields. A cold layer of freezing fog clung to the bottom of the valleys all day; as the sun crept down behind the hills it was still wrapped, wraith-like at the bottom of Colden Clough. The light changed and the temperature dropped rapidly as I shot this. It was very cold, very still, and incredibly beautiful.

Ted Hughes, the former Poet Laureate, used to own Lumb Bank: now the Arvon Foundation run it as a centre for writers.
