I will start with an apology for having not posted anything over the past week. I was away in the Lake District at the start of the week and then had to get my Lenscraft Newsletter out. Given I have been in the Lakes, I though it only fitting to share one of the images … Continue reading Friday Image No.88
I can hardly believe it but it’s true. There’s no catch and they are even promising a refund for those of us who purchased the software. Here is the link https://plus.google.com/+NikCollection/posts/AFGsG2Di7EK If you haven’t downloaded the software do it immediately before they come to their senses.
Yesterday I finally decided to sell my Panasonic GX1 that’s been converted to shoot infrared. The cameras been sat in a bag since I had the EM5 converted and whilst I thought it would be a good backup, I need the money for a new project (more on that in the future). Whilst advertising it … Continue reading Hidden Gems
For this week’s Friday image, I thought that I would share another scene from my recently adopted moorland project. I think I’m going to title the project “Views from the moors”. I realise this image might not appeal to many people but I like it for a very specific reason. When you are walking on … Continue reading Friday Image No. 83
Do you remember Velvia slide film? I used to shoot this stuff all the time. It was horribly contrasty and a pig to scan.

I had intended to get out yesterday for a long walk (about 20 miles) as I find it helps to clear my mind. In the end the 24 hours of torrential rain and quite severe thunder storms put an end to my hopes. Today was much better though and despite not having the time for … Continue reading Another Drought

I have just spent the last hour developing some Lightroom film-like presets. So I decided to save some time and share a recent image processed with … Continue reading Friday image No.027

This profile works with Lightroom and can be used instead of the “Adobe Standard” profile. Once installed you can select the profile in the Develop Module … Continue reading Free GM1 Camera Profile for Lightroom
After I posted this black and white image taken from near the summit of Great Gable in the English Lake District a number of you wanted to know what the starting image looked like. Well here is it. Looks great eh and you can immediately see how I turned it into the finished version … Continue reading How did it look at the start?
With it being a Bank Holiday in the UK today and for once the weather not being terrible, I went for a walk. I like quite near to the Peak District National Park but for some reason I seldom visit. Today I decided I wanted a good walk in the hills so drove over to … Continue reading Walking through History
