Wild Britain is the photographic portfolio from professional photographer Barry Payling, one of a unique band of photographers in the world who practise 'pure photography'. Each Barry Payling photograph is a true rendition of the scene. The image is exactly as it was seen through the camera lens. There will have been no manipulation whatsoever, either by analogue or digital means. In any print there has been no lightening or darkening (dodging or burning). In both the taking of the image and in the printing of it, no filters have been used on the camera or the in production of a print. The cameras used are purely mechanical. They do not have either autofocus or zoom lenses and amazingly no light meter has been used - exposure being based solely on experience.
Barry Payling is amongst a unique band of photographers in the world who practice 'pure photography'. You can see details of all Barry's workshops by viewing his website: www.barrypayling.co.uk and clicking on his Facebook page. Workshops of your own location choice (and length of time) are also available as long as there are at least four people, the maximum group being eight. Barry's shows are available for you to book for your club or society by contacting him at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phoning him on 07786 230 372. All the prints in this book are available as fine art prints, in three sizes - 12" x 12", 16" x 16" and 20" x 20". Any order should feature the name of the shot as shown in the book and page number.
