As I mentioned last week, I haven’t been out with a camera since mid-March. That hasn’t changed this week, and I doubt it will change in the next few weeks; I have too many immediate deadlines to meet. I have though promised myself that when the deadlines are met, I’m going to take a short break to do some actually photography.
Fortunately, I have many, many images in my photo library that have yet to be processed. Here’s one from Formby that I shot back in December on a stormy day and which I recently developed. I love the intense, dramatic light.
This image is two photos stitched together. Both were short handheld at 1/80” using a Fuji XT3 with Fuji 16-80 lens at f/13.0 and ISO160. I also used a 3 stop reverse ND grad filter on the sky.
Free Affinity Photo Course
If you are wondering what’s currently taking all my time, there are a few big things. Two that I can share here are:
- I’m working on another book. This time it’s about how to organise and manage your photo collection using Lightroom. This isn’t a book coldly explaining all the features in the Lightroom Library. Instead, it’s a practical book on using the Lightroom Library module to organise photography. I’m aiming to have this released in July this year.
- The other thing is that I’ve been working on is a beginners Affinity Photo course which I’ve been publishing on YouTube. If you haven’t seen it, lesson 4 was published yesterday. The links to all four lessons so far are below.
I hope you like the photo and videos and have a great weekend.
