My name is Henning Ras, I am a landscape and event photographer residing in Kent.
My favourite thought about photography is the science behind how light is captured
on film or with digital and then produce beautiful photographs. That’s why I feel
that photography is an art form and beauty lies in the eye of the beholder.
Most landscape photographers only shoot about 10 or 15 minutes before and after sunrise
and sunset to capture the blue and yellows in the sky but I find that I am able to
capture a different beauty about a landscape after midnight, especially while everyone
is tucked up in bed and the streets are empty and quiet. I do not leave until I feel
I have really captured the perfect shot, perhaps it is a good thing that I have always
been more nocturnal!
Many times I have shown people my night-time photography and they were amazed to
see what their town or countryside looked like from my perspective. I love to shoot
in black and white and most of my images do not need re-touching and are straight
out of the camera raw untouched beauty.
