The only difference was that … Continue reading Brilliant Free Luminosity Masking Tool

Photography with the Right Mindset

Godrevy Lighthouse at sunset, Cornwall.

The last time I published anything to this blog was the 5th July. Apologies for that but I decided to take a holiday and headed off to Cornwall. The scenery there is spectacular but looking through my images (yes I was still working) everything looks like a stock photo. Nice if you received them on … Continue reading Photography with the Right Mindset

Upgrading Exposure

I have finally taken the plunge and upgraded my copy of Exposure from Alien Skin. This is a great all-purpose piece of editing software which I tend to use as a plug in to Photoshop. What I really like are the film simulations. I already owned Exposure and was resisting the temptation to upgrade. What … Continue reading Upgrading Exposure

Friday Image No.143

It’s been said that a picture paints a thousand words. Sometimes though I think it’s enough not to say anything. Just empty your mind and let it drift on a sea of nothing and marvel at the expanse before you. That’s enough rambling for a Friday evening. The weeks work is over and I can … Continue reading Friday Image No.143

Friday Image No. 142

This week I have come to realise that I’m not getting out to any new locations to photograph. When I do manage to get out, I seem to be repeating many of the scenes and shots I have taken in the past. Or at least that’s the way it feels. This image was taken on … Continue reading Friday Image No. 142

Friday Image No.141

For this week’s Friday image, it’s a shot from my recent trip to Cornwall. I took this whilst walking the coast path. It’s probably about a mile outside Fowey. At the time, the light was very harsh and the images I was shooting on my standard Olympus EM5 weren’t looking very appealing. As is often … Continue reading Friday Image No.141

Back to Work

Porth Kidney Beach Cornwall

You might have noticed that there was no Friday Image or posts this week. If you were wondering why, it’s because I took a much needed holiday. But despite the holiday I still took a couple of cameras along with me to capture the landscape. Here is one from the beach near to where I … Continue reading Back to Work

Friday Image No. 110

This isn’t a deliberate ploy to post the same image as last week. This image was taken at the same time as last week’s Friday image but the lighting is stronger. The reason it looks stronger is that the image is processed using Nik Viveza. When I did this, I employed a few adjustment tricks … Continue reading Friday Image No. 110

Friday Image No.109

It’s the end of another week and I’m preparing for an early morning start. I’m going to try some shots over in the Peak District but as is often the case, the weather forecast doesn’t look too good. Hopefully things won’t look quite as bad when I get on location. I have also been busy … Continue reading Friday Image No.109

Friday Image No.55

In my previous post I showed an image shot during my recent holiday in Cornwall. It was used to illustrate how you can achieve a significant depth of field even at what might appear to be a large aperture. I said in the post that I had a better version of the image which was … Continue reading Friday Image No.55
