Creating a New Angle in Your Photography

Recently I met a friend in the Lake District for some photography. After a good start the light became too harsh, so we waited it out whilst drinking coffee and eating cake. We did though have a plan. We wanted to be on top of a hill called Tom Heights at the end of the … Continue reading Creating a New Angle in Your Photography

Photo Popularity and Instagram

Last week I posted an image from a long walk that I did in the Peak District. I suspect the shot of the landscape may not have connected with many people. It’s taken me a long time to appreciate the area and I live here. With that in mind, here’s another shot from that walk … Continue reading Photo Popularity and Instagram

Fortunate Landscape Photography

This past week I was fortunate enough to make a couple of trips out to photograph the landscape. The first of these which was Monday was perhaps the most rewarding because I didn’t head out with photography in mind. It just kind of happened during the day which is a great reward. I originally set … Continue reading Fortunate Landscape Photography

Chasing Storm Light

After spending last week indoors isolating because my wife was due to go for an operation (which was cancelled when she got there), I was hoping to do some photography this week. Unfortunately, it’s been dull and overcast every day. I did get out a couple of times but didn’t take any shots because the … Continue reading Chasing Storm Light

I May Have Solved My Colour Problem

Ever since I started shooting more with my Panasonic G9, I’ve been complaining that the colours don’t look quite right. The problem started with sunsets. When I looked at the images in Lightroom the colours looked somehow false. Yellow and orange seemed a particular problem and often translated into grass that looked a little too … Continue reading I May Have Solved My Colour Problem

Having a Second Stab at the Heather

Last week I shared one of my images from an outing to Surprise View in the Peak District. That image was captured with the Excellent Fuji XT3 and Fuji 10-24mm lens. This week I managed a return visit to the same area but decided to take the Panasonic G9. Although I didn’t intend to shoot … Continue reading Having a Second Stab at the Heather

Heather in the Peak District

This is one of my favourite times of year for landscape photography in the Peak District, because the heather is in flower. On Tuesday evening I made it over to Surprise View to meet a friend with the intention of checking how the heather was doing. As it turned out all the recent sun and … Continue reading Heather in the Peak District

Getting my Act Together

This week I managed to get my new car problems sorted out. More importantly I managed to get my act together and venture out with a camera. It was only local, but I met up with a friend on Standedge which is also the location for Britain’s longest canal tunnel. I visited this same location … Continue reading Getting my Act Together

Switching Back to Fuji

Last night, I met up with an old friend on Stanage Edge in the Peak District. The intention was to shoot the sunset, as the sun was due to set just to the side of the edge. If the weather played it’s part, the light on the edge would be spectacular. Often when that’s happened, … Continue reading Switching Back to Fuji

Panasonic Lumix G9 Images

After my month spent shooting with the Panasonic Lumix G9 I felt quite positive about the experience. Now that I’ve spent more time editing some of the RAW files I shot whilst in Cornwall, I’m feeling even more positive. Previously I’d reported that I didn’t like the colour of the images and couldn’t seem to … Continue reading Panasonic Lumix G9 Images
