About Holly

Travel for me has always been predominantly about amazing and epic landscapes. It all started with a trip to India in 1990 with an Olympus Trip (which didn't even belong to me) and has come as far as a Canon 5D Mark II; from taking a picture of the Taj Mahal through my sunglasses (and thinking I had invented the warming filter) to a full set of ND Grads and a professional edition RAW converter. Holly Barber Having received no formal photographic training I've picked up everything I know from magazines, online tutorials, books and websites, with my main influences being the colorful and classic landscapes of photographers such as David Noton, Galen Rowell and Colin Prior. The equipment that I currently use on a regular basis includes:
  • Canon EOS 5D Mark II
  • EF 17-40L f4.0
  • EF 24-105L f4.0
  • EF 70-200L f4.0
  • EF 50 f1.8
  • Lee Graduated Neutral Density Filters (1, 2 and 3 stop hard transition)
  • Polarising filter
  • Lee 10 stop ND filter
  • Remote release cable
  • Manfrotto 190CXPRO3 Tripod
Regardless of the standard of the gear and the development of my technique, my aim over the years has remained the same; to capture the wonder, subtlety and grandeur of the Earth as best as I can. Please take a look through my images and decide for yourself how well I have achieved that… If you would like to contact me please email me at info@bigwideworldphotography.com
