How It's Done
Every spring, without fail, I head into the woods to shoot that perennial symbol of renewal, the bluebell. It’s a fail-safe way of portraying the arrival of spring, and besides, who can resist those vibrant blue carpets, in amongst the fresh greens of late April and early May? Just last week I found a patch of woodland I’ve never been in before that’s now carpeted in bluebells. I may have shot them every spring for as long as I can remember, but still I can’t let this opportunity pass.
Mind you, while bluebells are a compulsive photographic treat, I’ve found that making the most of them can be tricky. What looks to the eye like a carpet of blue doesn’t always come across this way on camera. Here then are a few pointers to consider when you’re on your own bluebell shooting spree this spring.
