I’ll start today’s post by wishing you a happy New Year and success with your photography in 2022. Whatever your goals are, I hope you achieve them.
Now let’s get down to this week’s photograph that I want to share. In fact, I want to share two photos, both taken on the same day in Blackpool over the Christmas break.
The first of these shows Blackpool’s North Pier with great foreground sand ripples.
The second is looking in the opposite direction, towards the pleasure Beach in the distance. Again, it features interesting foreground ripples.
Both photos were shot using wide-angle lenses, but I’m not going to share the details of the focal length. That’s because I’ll be featuring them as part of an upcoming YouTube video, and I don’t want to spoil anyone’s enjoyment who might want to watch it.
The reason I decided to use them in a video was that I realised when shooting these that not many photographers make good use of their lens characteristics. Needless to say, the lenses used for these photos are probably not what you would guess. But you will need to wait until the video is released in a couple of weeks.
This Weeks Video
Now for this week’s YouTube video and it’s one that several Affinity Photo users have been asking for. It explains several reasons why many people find Affinity Photo confusing. If you’re one of these, you might want to check out the video with this link (https://youtu.be/6QrJF3vzEto) as I hope to build to help you.
I’ll leave it there for today, but I hope you like the photos and you have a great weekend.

Happy New Year Robin, looking forward to your great output and inspiration for 2022. The first shot is right up my street, really love it. The second not as much (the complex sky i think) but I do like those contrasty ripples. I’ll wait for the video…
Thank you. Yes, I prefer the first also but there is something about the second that I also like. I didn’t make any effort to control the sky which may well have made it appear too messy.
