Up Cerne


David Noton deconstructs a shoot to capture the last of the autumn colours in deepest Dorset.

I’m just back from the shoot. Being mid-November the afternoon light was gone by 4pm so here I am in Lightroom an hour later, seeing what I’ve got. The picture on the screen in front of me now of the last of the autumn colours clinging on in the Cerne Valley is a pretty straight forward one; no particular techniques were used either when shooting or in the processing. It’s way too early for me to be completely objective, but I think the picture works because of the bucolic setting, the tight composition, the autumnal palette, and the subtle light. But I was battling the elements this afternoon, which meant some key decisions had to be made on the hill above Cerne Abbas, and there are lessons to be learnt from each and every shoot, so let’s deconstruct the whole session while it’s still so fresh in my mind.
