Creative Fine Art Black & White Photo Editing

I’m sure that you will have seen these sorts of photos before. The ones where the sky is black, and the buildings are thrown into deep shadows, other than for a shaft of light picking out an area of detail. I've even shared images like this here in the past. I must admit that I … Continue reading Creative Fine Art Black & White Photo Editing

Forgotten Advice From An Urban Photography Trip

Last week, I mentioned that I wanted to try my hand at Urban Photography again. So, I met up with a friend and we headed into the city with our cameras. What I realised very quickly is that I’m out of practice. I was flipping between spotting too many good opportunities and being confused, to … Continue reading Forgotten Advice From An Urban Photography Trip

Feeling The Need For Urban Photography

Yesterday, I was in Manchester and needed to visit the Central Library. If you have never been, it’s a fantastic place to see. I used to go there back in the 1980’s on my lunch break, and whilst it’s been modernised, it still has a unique character. Anyway, whilst I was there, I began spotting … Continue reading Feeling The Need For Urban Photography

Happy New Photo Year

It’s the start of a new year and I hope that it’s a great one for your photography. There are lots of New Year Resolution posts and emails doing the rounds so I won’t add to them. Instead, I want to share an image that I shot back in October 2019. Sunset view from Higger … Continue reading Happy New Photo Year

Photographing the First Signs of Winter

I was laid up ill for most of last week. This week I’m feeling a lot better but still not 100%. I did however manage to get out for a brief (very chilly) walk on Wednesday. It’s been below zero here for the past week, even during the day. I headed up the hill to … Continue reading Photographing the First Signs of Winter

Higger Tor Frosty Landscape

Today’s post will be a short one. I’ve been laid up ill all week and haven’t been able to do much. Outside I can see that we’ve had the first real frost of this winter. As I haven’t been out, I decided to share a shot from the start of this year which was the … Continue reading Higger Tor Frosty Landscape

Photographing the Forests of Olympic National Park

Hall of Mosses Trail, Olympic National Park

This week, I had planned to share more of the images from my recent outing to Blackpool. But then something happened, and I became side-tracked. I wish I could tell you what it was, but I don’t know. This seems to happen to me with increasing regularity. You might think it’s my age, but I … Continue reading Photographing the Forests of Olympic National Park

A Photo Day Trip to Blackpool

Earlier this week, Tuesday to be precise, I headed over to Blackpool with a friend. Blackpool is a great location for photography and often produces amazing sunsets at this time of year. As the conditions looked promising, we thought this would be worth trying. Whilst I enjoyed the morning, my shots weren’t up to much. … Continue reading A Photo Day Trip to Blackpool

Peak District Winter Landscape

I’ll start by apologising that I wasn’t able to post last week. I simply had too much work to find the time. This week, after a week of rain here, I thought that I would share a winter image from the Peak District that I’ve just processed. Well, two images to be accurate, because I … Continue reading Peak District Winter Landscape
