Photographing the Forests of Olympic National Park

Hall of Mosses Trail, Olympic National Park

This week, I had planned to share more of the images from my recent outing to Blackpool. But then something happened, and I became side-tracked. I wish I could tell you what it was, but I don’t know. This seems to happen to me with increasing regularity. You might think it’s my age, but I … Continue reading Photographing the Forests of Olympic National Park

Wet & Misty in the Peak District

On Wednesday, I arrived home from a trip to the Lake District where the colours were turning autumnal. Feeling motivated to get out for some photography, I checked the weather forecast. I could see that a mist was predicted in some parts of the Peak District the following day. It looked like there would be … Continue reading Wet & Misty in the Peak District

I even forgot to post anything mid-week for which I apologise. This Friday post is therefore the missing tree image. … Continue reading Friday Image No.153

Infrared Processing

A few people have written me recently asking about how to process Infrared images and how I go about processing mine. If you’re interested, I created a short tutorial and accompanying video which are posted on Lenscraft. These explain how the image above was processed. Enjoy

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

Don’t Forget Camera Calibration

There is an often forgotten panel at the bottom of the development controls in Lightroom’s Develop module and that’s Camera Calibration. Here you can select the profile that’s used to convert the RAW file into an image. It sorts out how image data in the RAW maps to colours and tones in the finished image. … Continue reading Don’t Forget Camera Calibration
