Nostalgia / by Luke Pyett


My brother is now back from uni which is great seeing that I haven’t seen him for almost 6 months! Last weekend, we decided to head out with one of our close friends Lewis (@louiefilm).

I’ve actually lost count on the number of times I’ve been on this walk, but I never seem to get bored of it. I’m not quite sure what it is, it must just be a nostalgic place for me, seeing that it was where I filmed my first video and spent a lot of time teaching myself photography. 

It was great to capture some candid moments exploring with Lewis and Jake that afternoon. I find that moments like these now become rarer the older I get, everyone is so busy with either work, uni or just general life. It also made a nice change to take some photos without feeling too much pressure to capture that “perfect shot”.

All of the photos I took that afternoon were taken on my Canon 5D Mark IV using the 24mm Sigma Art 1.4. In Lightroom, I mainly adjusted the exposure, decreased the highlights, applied an S curve and added some grain to all of the images.

I plan on taking a trip down to Cornwall later in the year with Lewis, to visit my brother when he heads back for his second year. Hopefully, we get time to do some more exploring together down there! Hope you enjoy the photos, definitely let me know if you have any favourites?
