The merits of carrying my 500D and a fast 50mm f1.4 everywhere. These portraits took about 5 minutes to snatch from an otherwise non-photographic day.

  • Great shots, Newhaven Lighthouse?

  • The very same Dick! I presume you know it well.

  • I’m both a bit of a lighthouse anorak and I was brought up about 500 yards from it for the first 10 years or so.

  • These are lovely Matthew…I especially like the second and third from the top images, very enigmatic, but they are all very beautiful.

  • I love these shots – especially 2 and 3. I love lighthouses too.

    Matthew, just trying to catch up on your postings. For some reason my RSS reader is not picking up new postings of yours. Don’t know if you remember, but I followed you during your 100 Portraits project and found that very entertaining AND informative. I love your displaying the side head shots of Annie in the three different styles. It really makes one realize that an otherwise very similar pose can have quite a different effect even if all are posed the same way (and these, obviously, are not actually) but rendered in color, b&w, or sepia. I have gotten away from experimenting with b&w and have never really done anything in sepia, but your images are making me rethink that!

    Thanks, as always!
