frosty red berries

This early morning wintry shot was uploaded to Instagram using the hashtag #appicoftheweek. It was taken by photographer Steve Boney. He tells us, ‘I woke up early on a frosty morning in South Wales following a restless night of sleep because of the cold. I woke up to crystal-clear skies and a very harsh frost. On venturing out to try to warm up I came across the beautiful red berry bush which was just starting to be touched by the early morning sun and looked perfect to photograph.' By using the longest focal length of 55mm, Steve was able to fill the frame with the wonderful red berries. © STEPHEN BONEY IMAGES MAY BE USED FOR PROMOTION PURPOSES ONLINE AND ON SOCIAL MEDIA…

THIS portrait of twin sisters, Kira and Taya, is part of a wider series of images focusing on the relationships and identities of identical twins. Captured over four years by award-winning photographer Peter Zelewski, his images form a new book recently published by Hoxton Mini Press (£16.95). Peter interviewed and photographed 12 pairs of twins, all living in London, in order to delve further into their relationships. Despite capturing them in the same outfits, similar poses and expressions, Peter has managed to capture the subtle differences, and shares their personal accounts of what it's like being seen as one half of a pair. These powerful portraits tap into one of the most fascinating of all human relationships.…

The heroines will be honoured at a special exhibition and they will also receive a medallion named after Margaret Harker, the first female president of the RPS. Public awareness Hundred Heroines was the brainchild of RPS Vice President, Del Barrett. ‘We've been overwhelmed by the response, and…
