Forward to Autumn and More Forest Photography

Here in the North West of England, the weather has turned decidedly chilly in the past couple of weeks. Whilst it doesn’t often feel warm where I live, the house feels more like a fridge at the moment. It may have something to do with the 24” thick solid stone walls. With the feel of … Continue reading Forward to Autumn and More Forest Photography

The Scottish Highland Landscape Panorama

Yesterday, I was wondering what image to share in today’s blog post. At the time I was rewriting an old tutorial for my website on stitching panoramas in Lightroom. This got me thinking about publishing a YouTube video on the subject (which I’m now working on). As part of developing the video idea, I began … Continue reading The Scottish Highland Landscape Panorama

Striving for Natural Colour in Landscape Photos

One thing that I’ve become almost obsessed with recently is creating natural colour in my landscape photos. Because of this, I’ve found myself reworking some of last year’s photos using the latest editing tools. Here’s a great example from the Panasonic G9. Surprise View in the Peak District. Panasonic G9. I’ve reworked this several times … Continue reading Striving for Natural Colour in Landscape Photos

Exposure Blending on Derwent Edge

Last week, I ventured out in the evening to Derwent Edge in the Peak District. I also shared one of the photos that I shot on this blog. In this week’s blog post I want to share another but from earlier in the evening. I shot this using my Fuji XT3 with Fuji 16-80 lens … Continue reading Exposure Blending on Derwent Edge

Photographing Sunset on Derwent Edge

The last time I posted here, I was getting all stressed about having yet more interruptions to my photography. I then took some time out for a family holiday where I picked up COVID. Fortunately, I’m now recovered (but still suffering from dizzy spells) and managed to venture out on Wednesday evening. Boy, am I … Continue reading Photographing Sunset on Derwent Edge

Looking Forward to September

Here we are in mid-July, and I find myself eagerly looking forward to September already. Since the end of March this year, I’ve been over-committed and stretched in many directions. Unfortunately, I can see the situation continuing until September which is why I’m looking forward to it. Many of the things taking up my time … Continue reading Looking Forward to September

When Photography Becomes Rewarding Again

This week, I’ve been looking back at some of my old images from 2011. This has been rewarding for a couple of reasons: I was finding new images that I liked but which I previously haven’t processed.I found myself remembering my excitement when capturing a wonderful scene. This shot at dawn, of the mist rolling … Continue reading When Photography Becomes Rewarding Again

Back From Yet Another Break

Life is getting back to normal here after the last could of years. I know this because I’ve found my time is continuously squeezed by needing to break off for various holidays and trips that backed up over the past 2 years. Now that I can finally take a holiday, I don’t feel that I … Continue reading Back From Yet Another Break

More Old Photography

Still no new photography I’m afraid. At least none that I’ve shot recently. Instead, I’ve been working through more of my old images and found some real gems. Here’s one that was hiding as three separate frames. Once I stitched them together, I realised there was a decent panoramic scene. Ullswater, The Lake District. The … Continue reading More Old Photography

Still No Photography but Plenty of Photos

As I mentioned last week, I haven’t been out with a camera since mid-March. That hasn’t changed this week, and I doubt it will change in the next few weeks; I have too many immediate deadlines to meet. I have though promised myself that when the deadlines are met, I’m going to take a short … Continue reading Still No Photography but Plenty of Photos
