Latest Book Live on Amazon

Latest Book Live on Amazon

I’m excited. My latest book “The Photographers Guide to Lightroom’s Develop Module” just launched on Amazon. This was the book Lenscraft Members voted I write and it appears to be going down well. I always find this the most exciting point for two reasons: I don’t know how well the book will be received. It [...]

Friday Image No. 169

Friday Image No. 169

It’s felt like an eternity since I witnessed a good sunset or sunrise. But last weekend, I made a trip over to Formby with a friend and it was as if everything just fell into place. The day had been a little frustrating, alternating between too much cloud and not enough. As we sat on [...]

Lightroom CC Soft Proofing Bug and How to Fix It

What I’ve realised whilst writing is that many people struggle when it comes to making selections using Lightroom. Whilst they can create simple selections, if it’s a little [...]

Creating Complex Mask Selection in Lightroom


If you’re a Lightroom user, you may feel that the selection tools aren’t great. They certainly lack the precision you can achieve in Photoshop. As I’ve been writing my latest book (not surprisingly it’s on Lightroom), I’ve been creating some increasingly complex and precise selections. Some even rival what you can achieve in Photoshop using [...]

Cheap Software Transformed my Fuji Processing

Cheap Software Transformed my Fuji Processing

Last week I blogged to explain why I was reluctant to make image submissions from the Fuji X-T2. Then after some internal debate with myself, I made a few submissions. The results are back, and the submitted files passed QA. What I now need to confess to is that I didn’t process the files in [...]
