3 Shires head

Thursday I was running a photography workshop and our first location was at 3 Shires Head which is a lovely little place where the counties of Derbyshire, Staffordshire and Cheshire meet, it was the hottest day of the year so it wasn’t much of a surprise to find quite a few people here when we arrived enjoying the sunshine and swimming in the pool so we had to time our shots carefully so we didn’t get anybody in the frame. The bottom diagonal section of the composition was in deep shadow so I used a 4 stop soft grad to hold back the light from the sunlit area which balanced the exposure plus I added a 6 stop ND filter to produce some softness and movement to the water.
