#TAKEOVER @cliveboothphoto: “Capturing dramatic photos of @RNLI lifeboats doesn’t happen by accident. This is a collaboration with the Islay Lifeboat Operations Manager, Coxswain and the volunteers to make sure the boat is in the right place at the right time. We plan an exercise several days in advance assessing the location, weather, sea conditions, light and time of day, usually late afternoon in the golden hour just as the light is falling for the best atmosphere, with wind against tide to give the water more shape. The location is important, whenever possible making sure the boat is seen with a recognisable backdrop. Safety is the first priority and I always have someone holding onto me, when you are looking through the viewfinder it’s easy to become detached from your surroundings” (First image) Camera: EOS 5D S | Shutter Speed: 1/1600 sec | Aperture: f/4.5 | ISO-160


#TAKEOVER Over the next couple of days the brilliant @cliveboothphoto, one of our ambassadors will be sharing his story about a personal project he’s deeply passionate about - raising awareness through his photography of the incredible work of the @RNLI. This seemed like an apt start to the takeover, showcasing the warm open embrace of the charity’s dedicated volunteers: “I’m quite at home in the cold Hebridean waters in an RNLI dry suit; this photo shows one of the regular man overboard exercises that the volunteers undertake. It’s very humbling to think that RNLI volunteers risk their lives to help save those of complete strangers. I work with Islay RNLI on the Hebridean island of Islay in Scotland shooting with my trusty PowerShot G7 X Mark II in a waterproof case. In this photo, Scott Brown, an RNLI volunteer and head gamekeeper for The Islay Estate, reached out to pull me from the water.” Camera: PowerShot G7 X Mark II | Shutter Speed: 1/1000 secs | Aperture: f/4.5 | ISO-125

#mycanon "It had taken me ten days to introduce these great spotted woodpeckers to the perch. On this particular day, we had an adult and two young Woodpeckers on it at the same time. Now that would have been a great photo... next time I want them to look in to the camera for me!"
