Stephen Mole, Norwich, Norfolk Member Since September 2009 Artist Statement Norfolk Landscapes Plus
Recently made redundant and living in Ormesby, Norfolk.
I have been taking photos most of my life and, since the advent of digital, my passion for photography has really taken off! I now spend much of my time with a camera in my hand, and too much of my time sitting behind a computer!
I love the wonderful light that we have in this part of the world and can usually be seen out and about the Norfolk countryside capturing the wonderful landscapes of this beautiful county.
My photos range from scenes of the East Coast around and about Great Yarmouth. the lovely beaches that abound in this part of the world, the Norfolk Broads and the North Norfolk Coast. With the best bits of the rest of Norfolk in between!
You'll also find pictures of my travel around Britain and further afield. I have a large number of photos of the beautiful Greek Island of Santorini which will be added as time goes by.
I use Photoshop to bring out the best of my photos, emphasising either the natural colours or creating a desaturated look that mirrors the atmosphere that belongs to this wonderful county
I use a Nikon D700 DSLR. This is a full frame, professional, camera which benefits from extremely low 'noise' in photos. It means that I can take photos in lower light conditions than most other cameras can without the need for flash.
The full frame also means that I can achieve extremely wide angle shots which suit my style of landscape photography.
