Experimenting with DxO PureRAW 2

This week was quite hectic. I was testing out a beta version of the new PureRAW 2 software from DxO. Not only that, but I was also trying to piece together a video for YouTube to coincide with the launch on Wednesday. Fortunately, everything went to plan, and the video was released on time. If … Continue reading Experimenting with DxO PureRAW 2

Still Working Through Higger Tor Photos

With everything that’s going on (or wrong) in the world currently I don’t feel much like doing photography, and I’m sure a lot of others feel the same way. I’ll therefore keep this one brief to share a recent photo and let you know about a new video series on YouTube. View from Higger Tor … Continue reading Still Working Through Higger Tor Photos

There Was Amazing Light (for 10 Minutes)

I’ll start by apologising for last week when I didn’t post an image. It was a demanding week which ended in a computer problem where I’m locked out completely. It’s a long story that I won’t bore you with but it’s going to be at least another week before I can recover the system. In … Continue reading There Was Amazing Light (for 10 Minutes)

Happy New Year

Now let’s get down to this week’s photograph that I want to share. In fact, I want to share two photos, both taken on the same day in … Continue reading Happy New Year

Abstract Landscape Photography and a Formby Beach Sunset

This week’s photo post is out a day early. Tomorrow is Christmas Eve and I want to take some time off over the festive season. I’m also recovering from the dreaded virus, despite having been double jabbed. Fortunately, it was very mild and I’m now out of isolation in time for Christmas. Before I succumbed … Continue reading Abstract Landscape Photography and a Formby Beach Sunset

Winter Light at Formby

Something I have learned over the years is that the winter light on the UK coast can be magical. Nowhere else is this truer than at Formby. Sefton, only a couple of miles up the beach, is the location Antony Gormley chose for his famous sculptures “Another Place”. His reason for choosing this location? You … Continue reading Winter Light at Formby

More Dull Weather Photography

This week, I want to share a final image from my recent dull weather photography video on YouTube. This time the image is in black and white rather than colour. View at The Roaches I shot this using the Fuji XT3 together with the Fuji 10-24 mm lens at 14 mm. The exposure was a … Continue reading More Dull Weather Photography

Wet Woodland Photography

I’ve made a couple of outings recently to photograph the landscape, but the weather typically hasn’t played its part. Usually, the conditions have been dull, grey, and overcast. Eventually, I decided I’d had enough and would use the weather to my advantage by shooting a YouTube video about photography in dull conditions. Last week I … Continue reading Wet Woodland Photography

YouTube Photography Question

I’ll start with another apology for not posting last Friday. I was out of the country visiting my daughter in France and had intended to post this from France. Unfortunately, technology is now so secure that I couldn’t gain access because I was in another country. All attempts to verify myself were met with a … Continue reading YouTube Photography Question

More Forgotten Images

One of the great things about having a large back catalogue of images is that you can always find something new. This week I spent some time looking back at some images I shot in Cornwall 2015. Previously I’ve only processed a couple of these, but now that I’m looking at them, I can see … Continue reading More Forgotten Images
