False Colour Conversion in Infrared Photography

Before I get into the details of this post I need to point out that I'm not a fan of the false colour effect in infrared. That said I do quite like the look of the image above. I realise this is a personal choice and you may or may not like the effect. Despite … Continue reading False Colour Conversion in Infrared Photography

How did it look at the start?

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?

Friday Image No.015

I have been so busy this past week that I hadn't realised Friday had come round again. Then I realised that I didn't have an image to share so I started to look back over my shots from last year. A lot of the folders I have done nothing with. Despite this there are a … Continue reading Friday Image No.015

Friday image No.011

I love reflections., I find them fascinating and beautiful whether created on manmade surfaces or in nature. I suppose the ones we find in nature are the ones that really enthral me and I can't help reaching for my camera. Here is one from my walk last weekend in Jumbles Country park near to Bolton. … Continue reading Friday image No.011

Friday image No.008

Another image from my recent Yorkshire Dales trip. This was also taken on the first morning and is perhaps my favourite image from that day. I feel the quality of light is amazingly strong in this image. The light quality is often better in the morning than the evening as there is less dust in … Continue reading Friday image No.008

Friday image No. 007

Nothing too much to describe here. This is Twistleton Scar in the Yorkshire Dales and was photographed last weekend. I love the location and it’s not often I can get to it for dawn. I really need some time to perfect the processing of the image but I hope you like this early version.

Friday Image 006

In all my dashing around today I almost forgot to post my Friday image. I quite like the discipline of trying to create and post an image a week. I know others seem to manage one or more a day but I have too much else on to be able to make such a commitment. … Continue reading Friday Image 006

Lightweight Panoramic Set-up

Not too long ago I related how I had been struggling with the small size of my Olympus OMD EM5 when using it on a tripod. My solution to this had been to buy the two part grip and also to use an L-bracket from Novoflex. The Novoflex bracket wasn’t required to solve the size … Continue reading Lightweight Panoramic Set-up

Lightweight Panoramic Photography

I am and always have been a fan of panoramic photography. I’m not sure why but the format (usually somewhere between 2:1 and 3:1 ratio) really appeals to me and makes sense as the way I see the world. Unfortunately, to create good panoramic images you need additional equipment beyond just the digital camera and … Continue reading Lightweight Panoramic Photography
