Wil Wardle Photography on Ipernity

So its like this, at this time of writing I have 197 images posted on Ipernity, and counting.

I started using Ipernity as a way to separate my distinct personal photographic styles, as I felt that I needed a place to focus my photography of people, incorporating but not limited too my street style photography and also a few portrait style projects that I am currently working on. 

This is quite different from the urban and auto themed projects that are predominately displayed on my Flickr stream. Whilst having been on Flickr for many years, and having built up a solid base of followers and of people I follow in turn, and whose photography I really admire, starting afresh on Ipernity has been slow, but I am getting there.

The selection of my photography that I have curated on here, are all photographs that I am proud of and pleased with the crafting of, and which span a period of the past 4 years or so.

They generally tell some sort of a story or display an essence of emotion or personality of the subject. Some are street scenes, however the theme running through all the photographs is "People", whether they be family, friends or strangers I have met and engaged with on some sort of personal level. 

I hope you will feel some of my passion and my personal pride in the work which I have hand selected to display here. I will continue to post on here from my catalogue as time goes by.

Fourth in my Hastings Fishing beach series. This time of the sheds where the fishing tackle and nets ect is kept. For this image, I also tried something different, inspired by my friend and fellow photographer Paul Manser was doing initially, and that was using his Canon Speedlite to illuminate a scene. For this photograph I used my LED torch which I always carry in my camera bag, to illuminate  the poster of the "Hastings Herring Festival

Walk away quickly and quietly

Photograph of a 'Boss' Harley Davidson taken in Palma de Mallorca last year. I like how the figure on the right appears to be scampering away.  

Pint of Sussex Heritage Please

Latest photography posted on my Flickr Photo Stream

Photograph of a vintage motorcycle that I captured outside my local pub The Victoria Hotel last summer. You will of course forgive me for not knowing the make and model of the motorcycle, I should have paid closer attention here. Photographing motorcycles is not normally my thing, however on occasion they present themselves to my lens and it's a case of it would be rude not to photograph them. I am in the process of posting a few motorcycle shots that I have been saving up (you may have noticed the preceeding Vespa shots on my flickr stream), so please stay tuned for more over the next few days.

Essentially European

Latest photography posted on my Flickr Photo Stream

Taken in Palma de Mallorca. I love photographing Vespa style scooters, as they have such a timeless quality to them that never seems to grow old. In this phonograph I also really like all the contrasty areas of shade and sunshine. If I say so myself, I think I have handled the exposure pretty well here with a nice balanced feel to the image complimenting the composition.
