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

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

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

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

More Panasonic G9 Photography

It was a bit last minute, but I met up with a friend last night in the Peak District. I took along the Panasonic G9 to continue my re-immersion into the world of micro 43. As usual, it didn’t go entirely to plan but there was a brief period of 5-10 minutes where the clouds … Continue reading More Panasonic G9 Photography
