As we’re still indoors I’m working through my huge archive of past images rather than shooting new material. Whilst it’s frustrating in one sense, it’s great in another. I’m spotting lots of images that I really like and I’m posting them to my Instagram page.
Today though, I’m going to cheat a little. I posted this image to Instagram earlier and decided to share it here. Believe it or not, I’m short of time.
The image is from the Yorkshire Dales in April 2016. The area is just above Malham as you head towards Malham Tarn.
I shot it using a Sony A7R with a Canon 24-70 L series lens (I’ve sold both since this was taken). The exposure is 1/25” at f/16 and ISO100. I had the camera mounted on a tripod and used a 2 stop ND Graduated filter on the sky. I did the black and white conversion using Nik Silver Efex Pro followed by some dodging and burning in Photoshop using Luminosity Masks.
Lenscraft April Newsletter
Something else that I’ve been working on is tutorials for my website and the April newsletter. The newsletter’s published in the early hours of Saturday (UK time). If you’re not subscribed you’ll be able to read it here https://lenscraft.co.uk/lenscraft-photography-blog/photography-newsletter/ on Saturday 4th April.
This month’s newsletter contains links to all the new tutorials as well as a lot of resources from around the internet. I’ll also be giving away one of my courses to all subscribers to help people fill their time with some productive learning.
I hope you like this week’s image and have a great weekend.
