Looking Forward to September

Here we are in mid-July, and I find myself eagerly looking forward to September already. Since the end of March this year, I’ve been over-committed and stretched in many directions. Unfortunately, I can see the situation continuing until September which is why I’m looking forward to it. Many of the things taking up my time … Continue reading Looking Forward to September

Back From Yet Another Break

Life is getting back to normal here after the last could of years. I know this because I’ve found my time is continuously squeezed by needing to break off for various holidays and trips that backed up over the past 2 years. Now that I can finally take a holiday, I don’t feel that I … Continue reading Back From Yet Another Break

Organising My Photo Library

Currently, I’m working on writing a new book. It’s about how to manage your photo library in Lightroom. Included in the book is a chapter about reorganising a Lightroom Library that’s grown out of control. To illustrate the book, I’m using examples of my own image library that’s seen many changes over the past 20 … Continue reading Organising My Photo Library

Still No Photography but Plenty of Photos

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 … Continue reading Still No Photography but Plenty of Photos

I Need a Photo Project

I’ll start by saying sorry for not publishing in April. There was simply too much happening in my life, and something had to give. Interestingly, now that I’ve caught up a little, I realise that I haven’t been out with a camera since mid-March. More worrying is that I haven’t really missed it. I think … Continue reading I Need a Photo Project

Blue Hour on Stanage Edge

Yesterday after lunch, I headed over to Stanage Edge in the Peak District to meet a friend. The weather forecast looked good, and I was hopeful for a repeat of the great light from a couple of weeks ago on Carhead Rocks. After meeting up at Stanage, we spent an hour walking the edge to … Continue reading Blue Hour on Stanage Edge

Experimenting with DxO PureRAW 2

This week was quite hectic. I was testing out a beta version of the new PureRAW 2 software from DxO. Not only that, but I was also trying to piece together a video for YouTube to coincide with the launch on Wednesday. Fortunately, everything went to plan, and the video was released on time. If … Continue reading Experimenting with DxO PureRAW 2

Dramatic Light in the Peak District

Despite struggling to work up any enthusiasm for photography (as mentioned last week), I did get out on Saturday, meeting up with another photographer. It was great to get out and clear my head, and we ended up at Carhead Rocks in the Peak District. Looking back at my images now, I’m very pleased that … Continue reading Dramatic Light in the Peak District

Still Working Through Higger Tor Photos

With everything that’s going on (or wrong) in the world currently I don’t feel much like doing photography, and I’m sure a lot of others feel the same way. I’ll therefore keep this one brief to share a recent photo and let you know about a new video series on YouTube. View from Higger Tor … Continue reading Still Working Through Higger Tor Photos

More Dull Weather Photography

This week, I want to share a final image from my recent dull weather photography video on YouTube. This time the image is in black and white rather than colour. View at The Roaches I shot this using the Fuji XT3 together with the Fuji 10-24 mm lens at 14 mm. The exposure was a … Continue reading More Dull Weather Photography
