Latest Adobe Release

In my Friday Image post I mentioned I may head out to Saddleworth Moor on Saturday morning. I did walk up there but it didn’t look promising for photography. Storm Brian was on the way and it was already raining hard. But, by the time I had walked from home to the edge of the … Continue reading Latest Adobe Release

Friday Image No.138

A few weeks back I visited the Lake District for what appeared to be a wash-out photo shoot. I started off near to Buttermere where it rained constantly. I moved on to Derwent water where the sun came out and was far too bright. On the way between these two locations I forgot that we … Continue reading Friday Image No.138

B&W Conversion Video

You asked to see how it was done. Here is the video to explain. This shows how you can achieve quite dramatic black and white conversions using only Lightroom. You don’t need any other software or filters. What limits you is your imagination. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WZBifyOkNfs I hope you find this video useful and don’t forget to … Continue reading B&W Conversion Video

Nik Silver Efex Video

Yesterday I published a new video on my You Tube Channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYMWL3WXU9QMeOUhD3lOpEw This is one is another of those videos focussing on the overlooked adjustments. People often overlook some of the most powerful adjustments in favour of the most obvious. If you want to create some black and white conversions reminiscent of film, watch this … Continue reading Nik Silver Efex Video

Amazing Film

This is another image that I just have to share. I shot this around 10 years ago in Paris on my XPan panoramic camera. It was shot on good old Ilford Delta 100 and processed using ID11. I scanned the image in two halves using my Minolta 5400 35mm scanner. The image is panoramic so … Continue reading Amazing Film

Monochrome Forest

The Friday image this week seemed to draw a few favourable comments so I thought that I would post another similar image. I have also included the colour image below, but this time I personally prefer the colour image. I can’t say why this is but the colour image seems to have more depth to … Continue reading Monochrome Forest

Friday Image No.96

Whilst on my recent road trip I captured this image. What I like is that it could have been anywhere and that I didn’t need to travel to the US to shoot it. My wife thinks I’m mad travelling all that way to take pictures of leaves. I suspect some of the people passing by … Continue reading Friday Image No.96

Friday Image No.87

I keep having this odd feeling that I am running out of images (I haven’t been able to shoot much recently). I have this feeling that I don’t really like too much of my recent work and that it won’t endure. But when I go back about a year that I start to find images … Continue reading Friday Image No.87

The other week I published an image similar to this. Well for those who are interested (and quite a few people emailed me), here is the starting image. If you want to know the processing steps I posted the tutorial on Lenscraft. Here’s the link. https://lenscraft.co.uk/processing-wind-farm-photograph/

I Love the Canon G16

I have been using the G16 pocket Camera quite a lot recently and the more I use it the more I like it. I find the build good and the image quality very good. It’s easy to use and whilst it doesn’t shine in any one area it’s a great, well balanced package that’s a … Continue reading I Love the Canon G16
