Lately, I’ve been making a huge effort to print more of my photos, not just to sell but to hang in the office and around our home. Printing the photos is the final piece of the puzzle, rather than just storing them on computers and sharing online I find printing them gives a new lease of life.Read More
Weddings are expensive. The average cost of a wedding in the UK is now a whopping £31,974, which is considerably more than the median after-tax income for an entire year.
It should come as no surprise, therefore, that soon-to-be-weds regularly ask their photography-savvy friend to take over the role of a wedding photographer. You’ve got a DSLR, they say to you. How hard can it be?Read More
Have you ever thought about how quiet and lonely landscape photography is?
When you think of photography you think of the social side of it, interacting with people but that’s not true for all types of photography. Portrait photography is about getting the model to pose as you want, wedding photographers have to organise the families into the group photos, street photography you often talk to the people you take photos of. Even pet photographers have the owners and pets to deal with, what do you have when taking landscape photos?Read More
It seems a long time ago that we had the hottest day of the year as I look out the window while writing this and it’s windy and pouring with rain.
On the morning of 25th July, I thought it would be a good idea to have an early morning walk, all part of walking more and getting fit. I set off at about 7.30 and it was already so hot, suddenly this didn’t seem like such a good idea.Read More
There are a few things you need to have as a photographer. Yes, you could just take a photo using your phone and post it online and be happy with it, there is nothing wrong with this at all. I like to use my DSLR 90% of the time and also shoot in RAW, this means the files come out of the camera flat and you’ll need to edit ‘develop’ the photo to bring it to life.Read More
This might be a photo that some people like and others not so much. I’ve had mixed reviews of it but I personally like it.
This is a hidden cave and the view from it gives a unique view over a lake with waterlilies on it. As you’d expect the cave was dark and sky bright so to help with this I bracketed three photos together to create this.Read More
I came across this view whilst walking around a local pond on a hot Summer day. It didn’t jump out at me right away but I was sitting on the edge of the pond and the lower angle made it look all the more appealing.
This isn’t a photo that I’ll make available as a print but it feels like a photo to sum up Summer perfectly.Read More
Isn’t photography incredible? You get to take those moving, sometimes chaotic moments in time and distill into a single shot. You capture the emotions, the movement, the colour. And then the image sites on your memory card for months, until you eventually either wipe it or upload it to the cloud. This digital age offers so many amazing opportunities for photography, but it can also take away some of the magic. Remember the old days of developing your images and carefully displaying the best? Here are three reasons to recapture that spirit by printing your photos.Read More
This is something I did last year and really enjoyed it and received a lot of positive feedback so I thought I’d try it again this year.
If you send me your unedited RAW or JPG photos I will use Luminar to edit them for you. These photos can really be of any subject, landscapes, portraits, macro it’s up to you.Read More
I know a lot of people who just really want a quick way to improve their photos. They don’t want to be spending hours on a single edit, using layers and playing with various different sliders. If that sounds like you then this post and video is perfect for you, we’ll be using two sliders and that’s it.Read More
