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
Have you ever got home and edited a photo only to notice a dust spot or watermark? Add to that a random bird in the sky or something similar.
We’ve all been there and especially if like me your camera sensor is dirty and you’ve never got round to cleaning it. Read More
Another part of the Aurora HDR 2019 series, this time I edit a jpeg photo from a Google Pixel 2. I hope this shows that you don’t need to just use this software for RAW bracketed files.
This was the photo that I started with, unedited and straight out of the phone. Read More
The A7iii is the latest full-frame mirrorless camera from Sony and it's their 'entry-level' one. It's a 24.2mp all singing all dancing, 690+ focus points, touch-screen, 4K recording camera.
Priced at £2,000 for a professional camera it's not too expensive, don't get me wrong it's expensive but not compared to D4 iv or D850. Read More
Lewis from Adventure Brown, sent me a photo to edit which was taken at Cauldron Falls in Glencoe Scotland.
The photo was taken using a Sony A6000 and as you can see it was a longer exposure of 3.2seconds and it looks like a wonderful location for photography. Read More
The all-new Skylum Luminar 2018, this year is faster, better and coming in 2018 file management.
This for me is almost the complete package and I think with the updates coming it really will be. I've created a short video to show you a few of the features that I think you will love. Read More

I often get sent new bits of software and most I just dismiss. I'm happy using Lightroom, Aurora and Luminar and between them, they do exactly what I want.
The other day I was asked if I wanted to try a new piece of software that uses AI to edit the photo so that you don't have to do anything. The exposure, colours, etc are all sorted for you. You load a photo and the software does everything for you.
This is called PhotoLemur and I think you'll like it. Read More
