There are two major elements to the Goodwood Revival Meeting. Firstly the wonderful machinery (the cars, the aircraft and the motor bikes) and secondly the people who attend and frankly make this event what it is today. In the past I have concentrated on the former but this year I decided that I would work harder to capture images of the characters, their outfits and through them the spirit of the event itself.
In an earlier blog entry I made it clear that all my images this year would be in ‘black and white’ and through this medium I think the mood of the event is further enhanced.
With one exception all the photographs have been taken using the Olympus EM5, imported into Lightroom and converted into black and white using Silver Efex Pro.

I later found out that the artist in the above photo is Stefan Marjoram. He is both a professional artist and a photographer specialising in motor sport. In my opinion he produces some wonderful work. His photographic work can be found here and his drawings here. He has a specific blog entry for his drawings of The Silver Arrows, which includes the very drawing he is working on in this image.
