A Walk in Epping Forest


For the past 3 years that I have been photographing children in London, I have found myself a favourite place to photograph my subjects in and even go there occasionally just to have a walk
or a bicycle ride with my family and just be connected with nature, this place is called Epping Forest. It’s mostly made up of many striking areas of woodlands and home to many different varieties of trees, plants and animals from small insects to majestic deers, truly a perfect place for nature enthusiasts. I am lucky enough to live close which gives me plenty of opportunities to visit this place when the London weather permits. It's a huge area with plenty of great
reservations of nature that makes up that picture perfect backdrop, ranging from tall trees and wide open spaces with picturesque views of the sky perfect for portrait sessions. When people think of portraits they usually think of focal lengths more in the telephoto range or maybe the 35mm for wider field of view. I was the same until I got my hands on an ultra wide angle lens, the Samyang XP 14mm f2.4. Now my favourite place to shoot has changed already just by looking through the viewfinder, it has so much more to offer and gives me the possibility to add a whole different story to my images. Now through my images I can give back how I see it with my own eyes, outwardly calm and collected.







One of the best spots in Epping Forest to shoot when you’re lucky enough to have a great sky is Chingford Plains, where I take my child to run around and get fresh air in a long stretch of open space and grassland which is also used by many locals for exercises such as walking, cycling or walking their dogs. Life in London is fast and busy, so this is where you can unwind and really appreciate life and get more connected to nature.
I myself grew up in the countryside of the Philippines which compared to London is way less busy and much more calm, so this is where I can have the nostalgic feeling of my childhood. I always suggest this place for an outdoor photo session with my clients whenever I can as it has so much to offer and almost every visit I find a new hidden place which helps me to create unique images.

London is known for its quick changing, often moody weather, from rain and windy one day and bright and sunny the other day, or even it can drastically change in a matter of minutes so you have to keep an eye on the weather forecast when you are planning to do hotoshoots.
Quite often the sky is overcast and gloomy which acts as a natural diffuser helping me achieve soft shadows, but when you get lucky with the weather, you can have beautifully lit cloudy skies bringing you amazing colours. I always have this opportunity and when I see it, I run out to not miss all its glory and when you catch that glimpse of sunset when it’s been raining all week is like the gold pot at the end of the rainbow.















Another one of my favourite spots of this enormous forest is the ighams Park Lake where you can have fun and educational time with children by watching the various birds who live at the lake. Along its shore, there are many hidden spots covered with trees and bushes where you can come closer to the water and when ducks notice you, they come swimming right by in hope of some snacks. But with their
rich environment these small spots give me lots of opportunities to create great photos.
But apart from this lake this forest also has many ponds, some smaller some a bit bigger like Connaught Water, which is not far from Chingford Plains


This has relatively easy access to public transport and the jaw-dropping view especially closer to sunset is something not to be missed if you are in this area, with its striking stands of ancient
hornbeams and grove of young oaks lit by the setting Sun. This is the perfect time to go out with family, and for me, the best time to hotograph my growing child. The ultra wide angle of view of the Samyang XP 14mm f2.4 has helped me capture my son in his most playful times with his surroundings clearly visible, the time, the mood and the colors are in harmony with his lively energy. Growing up with photo enthusiast parents he has been used to being a model and he
doesn’t mind me posing him and he is happy to cooperate with my ideas. One of the reasons I enjoy taking photos of children is they are beautiful just like nature, they all have their own personalities and it is up to me to determine how to capture them the best way being their own little individual.







In the past few years, I have been intimidated by how massive Epping Forest is and I have always thought of how to incorporate it with children portraits and needless to say, Samyang XP 14mm F2.4 has given me another opportunity in creating my photos. Now more than ever I am more eager to come to this place and create many different images of either my own son or of my beloved clients. Even though I spent many hours at Epping Forest I still haven’t explored this gem of all its beauty and I am excited to see what hidden places of this forest holds for me where I can take more photographs of it.

森养最佳标准画角提案解析

从人与人之间的关系乃至为了营造美丽的空间而布置装饰品时都需要保持适当的距离。那么,为了更好地欣赏美术或摄影作品,我们应该保持多少距离?

答案是相当于“作品框架对角线的长度”的距离。

为了将作品完整地纳入视野并予欣赏,保持相当于作品对角线的距离为宜。如果距离过近,将大于人眼可集中精力的50°视角而无法取的良好的欣赏效果。

为了最佳欣赏效果与最佳视角而保持理想距离也适用于摄影技术。在拍摄静止画像的摄影技术中,将等于摄像面对角线长度的焦距镜头定义为标准镜头。数码相机的全帧传感器尺寸为36x24毫米,其对角线距离约为43.26毫米,标准镜头应为多少毫米以下的最理想答案可以称为“接近43.26毫米的数据”,而难以断定是至今被视作标准镜头代名词的“50毫米”。

以往与胶片对角线长度相仿的45mm画角镜头较为常见,随着SLR相机大获成功,为了保留可容纳反射镜的空间,50mm被视作标准镜头。但是,最近随着无反相机底边大幅放大, 鉴于无反相机法兰距短的特点,需要将标准镜头的画角以45mm再度予以解释,由此开始研发AF 45mm F1.8 FE。 与35mm画角镜头相比,三阳的AF 45mm F1.8 FE将畸变现象降至最低,且比55mm画角拍摄范围宽,为人物、风景、建筑物及宠物等各种主题摄影呈献令人满意的效果。
