Successful Image

Didn't quite work

From the archive

Joe Cornish's First Light is widely acknowledged as influencing a huge number of landscape photographers in the UK and a fair few abroad too. The combination of accessible but descriptive narrative, the wonderful photography and the honesty of showing work that didn't quite make it combine to give a great flavour of what it is to be a landscape photographer. This new series of 'Hindsight' screencasts uses a similar approach where we review a picture that works well and has been used professionally, a picture from the same session that didn't quite make the grade and we add to the formula by introducing a picture that was considered successful personally but that didn't get used; a shot that has sat in the archives.

This first episode in the series covers a photo shoot that Joe carried out for the National Trust in Hardcastle Crags, a south Pennines beauty spot with 400 acres of woodland; an autumnal treasure trove. There are over 30 miles of footpaths and Joe's commission was to find photographs that represented the nature of the area.
