Forward to Autumn and More Forest Photography

Here in the North West of England, the weather has turned decidedly chilly in the past couple of weeks. Whilst it doesn’t often feel warm where I live, the house feels more like a fridge at the moment. It may have something to do with the 24” thick solid stone walls. With the feel of … Continue reading Forward to Autumn and More Forest Photography

The Scottish Highland Landscape Panorama

Yesterday, I was wondering what image to share in today’s blog post. At the time I was rewriting an old tutorial for my website on stitching panoramas in Lightroom. This got me thinking about publishing a YouTube video on the subject (which I’m now working on). As part of developing the video idea, I began … Continue reading The Scottish Highland Landscape Panorama

Striving for Natural Colour in Landscape Photos

One thing that I’ve become almost obsessed with recently is creating natural colour in my landscape photos. Because of this, I’ve found myself reworking some of last year’s photos using the latest editing tools. Here’s a great example from the Panasonic G9. Surprise View in the Peak District. Panasonic G9. I’ve reworked this several times … Continue reading Striving for Natural Colour in Landscape Photos

The Excellent Panasonic G9 High Resolution Mode

Last week I mentioned that I’ve been doing more work using the high resolution mode of my Panasonic G9.

Curse of the UV Filter

I was out last night in the Peak District, photographing the landscape at Surprise View with a friend. We hoped there might still be some heather in flower although we knew it was a little late. As it happens, you could still find a few clumps that looked reasonable, but you had to be prepared … Continue reading Curse of the UV Filter

Exposure Blending on Derwent Edge

Last week, I ventured out in the evening to Derwent Edge in the Peak District. I also shared one of the photos that I shot on this blog. In this week’s blog post I want to share another but from earlier in the evening. I shot this using my Fuji XT3 with Fuji 16-80 lens … Continue reading Exposure Blending on Derwent Edge

Photographing Sunset on Derwent Edge

The last time I posted here, I was getting all stressed about having yet more interruptions to my photography. I then took some time out for a family holiday where I picked up COVID. Fortunately, I’m now recovered (but still suffering from dizzy spells) and managed to venture out on Wednesday evening. Boy, am I … Continue reading Photographing Sunset on Derwent Edge

Looking Forward to September

Here we are in mid-July, and I find myself eagerly looking forward to September already. Since the end of March this year, I’ve been over-committed and stretched in many directions. Unfortunately, I can see the situation continuing until September which is why I’m looking forward to it. Many of the things taking up my time … Continue reading Looking Forward to September

When Photography Becomes Rewarding Again

This week, I’ve been looking back at some of my old images from 2011. This has been rewarding for a couple of reasons: I was finding new images that I liked but which I previously haven’t processed.I found myself remembering my excitement when capturing a wonderful scene. This shot at dawn, of the mist rolling … Continue reading When Photography Becomes Rewarding Again
