Capturing the world with Photography, Painting and Drawing

Finding light , around the farm.

The Light from the Door 11
Burnchurch Farm , County Tipperary
landscape Photography : Nigel Borrington

Light is just an amazing subject in photography, the searching for and finding of interesting lighting conditions can become an obsession for many visual artists.

I have found over the years that the best light can be found in places that need to be search for, looking for limited amounts of light is I feel my personal interest when getting an image I feel happy with.

Burnchurch is an old Family Farm in county Tipperary, the land here is still farmed but the house is no longer occupied, we visit and stay here a few times during the year, its a wonderful location to get away and relax for a week.

Some of the images taken here are an example of my attempt to explore and experiment with the use of limited light in photography.

The Images in the below Gallery are all taken inside some of the sheds around the farm yard and even on a wet day the light through the windows and doors here is just perfect. I love the way the light falls through the windows and into the rooms, falling onto objects that have been hanging here for many years.

I feel that photography and the images it captures is a great way to explore subjects like light, capturing in an instance the light in a room or how it is falling over a landscape.

  4. This looks like a great place to explore–something about abandoned old buildings and feeling one with those who used to occupy them………

    Fantastic images, Nigel. Low light shooting is so much fun–it conveys a ense of atmosphere and character that feels very personal.

  6. This lovely set of photos reminds me that I have yet to explore buildings like these around here….old buildings are great to photograph. …..and not being afraid of blackness is an important lesson to learn…thanks Nigel.

    I love low light photography and find your images of the windows etc very interesting.

    (I wish more photographers made these sorts of compositions).
