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

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

Having a Second Stab at the Heather

Last week I shared one of my images from an outing to Surprise View in the Peak District. That image was captured with the Excellent Fuji XT3 and Fuji 10-24mm lens. This week I managed a return visit to the same area but decided to take the Panasonic G9. Although I didn’t intend to shoot … Continue reading Having a Second Stab at the Heather

Update on my Micro 43 Challenge

Last week I spoke about my overlooked Panasonic G9 micro 43 kit and how I was challenging myself to shoot with it through June. Well, I may have failed depending on how pure you view my challenge. You see the weather here has been hot, dry, and sunny for the past week. This has caused … Continue reading Update on my Micro 43 Challenge

I Wish I Could Remember Where I Was

Location unknown. Panasonic GX1 with infrared conversion.

I’ve just been looking through my photo archive when I found a folder I didn’t recognise. Inside were other folders and inside those were thousands of images. Images that I had shot a long time ago using a Panasonic GX1 infrared camera. For some reason I hadn’t imported these files to Lightroom. Wow! Thinking about … Continue reading I Wish I Could Remember Where I Was

And My Decision Is…

View across Holm Fell in the Lake District. Fuji XT3 with 55-200 lens.

Last week I shared my desire for a new camera. At that time, I had two choices in mind. A Panasonic G9 micro 43 camera and a Sony A7R MkII full frame. If you’re wondering why I came up with this short list and didn’t include the latest full frame offerings or DSLRs, please see … Continue reading And My Decision Is…

Death Valley Revisited

Friday Image No.220 Zabriskie Point, Death Valley. Panasonic GX1, Panasonic 14-45 lens, ISO160, 1/60" at f/8.0 Over the past week, I’ve restarted work on a new edition of my Essential Photoshop book. When I wrote the original book, I wanted it to be version independent and work with old and new versions of Photoshop alike. … Continue reading Death Valley Revisited

Hidden Gems

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

I was editing this and noticed

After I published the Friday Image No 20 I decided to review my Olympus EM5 shots. I had taken a few of the same location with the extremely sharp Olympus 45mm prime. You can see one particular example above. What I noticed, that took me completely by surprise, is that I can see traces of … Continue reading I was editing this and noticed

Friday image No.020

I have been working on a book which discusses how to improve your photography and which takes a different approach to the more usual "instruction manual" format. On reviewing the draft my Editor helpfully commented that perhaps I should drag myself out of my Landscape comfort zone and sample some of my own medicine. So … Continue reading Friday image No.020
