Fire Truck

  Without further ado, welcome to our first blog tutorial using the new Fly Nik Anolog Presets! But before I go on, we’d just like to remind you guys that this Analog Preset Pack is for the Nik Analog Pro Plug-in and not for the usual Color Efex Pro. You can download it free from […]


Medieval

  Another image from the grounds of Leeds Castle in Kent, I came across this interesting themed hillside camp-site situated beyond their large vineyard which can be glimpsed in the background, and found they’re now running a new Glamping site! All these lovely fresh new tents with their different primary colours were glowing in the […]

Tintype Hydrangea

  I hope you’re all enjoying playing with the wonderful new Tintype Edges as much as we are. They’re going to be very versatile especially if you want an authentic vintage look. Paul and I have been experimenting with scanning things on our flatbed scanners and then texturing, scanning gives a very narrow depth of […]


Rain

  Sometimes it’s the unintentional photos that work the best! Yesterday afternoon I noticed some storm clouds brewing to the south so we rushed out to the beach to see if I could get some photos with dramatic skies over the sea but the heavens opened before I got there and it absolutely poured down, […]


To the Sea

  Skies are difficult things to get right, I normally use a PL filter on my lens to get darker deeper blues at the cost of the foreground being too dark as above, this is where textures come in handy to lift those dark areas, but I also like to pre-process in Nik Color Efex […]


Spoons

  One of my projects over on flickr is to take a photo a day,  and with the exception of a couple of missed days I think I’ve met the challenge. Some days it’s a bit of a struggle to think of something to take a photo of, but it’s amazing what you can find […]

Vine Road

  This week I finally had my car returned from the garage after waiting 2 years to get my front Volvo bumper replaced as I had skidded in the mountain snow and had managed to plough up a stone farm wall and ended up at a 45 degree angle! Thankfully, I had a friend with […]


Riders

Horse riding after

  Yesterday afternoon I put the Lensbaby Edge 8o on the camera and went for a walk on a  beach little to the south of the city,  a cold front and rain was predicted so I went armed with a jacket only to find it surprisingly warm. The sky was dramatic though, you could see […]


Dino

  From central London its just a short overground train journey to get to Crystal palace, or what is left of it, after a huge fire burnt it to the ground in November 1936. Built for the Great Exhibition in Hyde Park, and later moved several miles south of the London river Themes, to Crystal Palace […]


Albion on Sea

From Jill and I, ‘Paul’ hope you all had Happy Holidays! 🙂 As its now midwinter, I thought it might be nice to revisit the summer, last August on a balmy evening on England’s Eastborne beach at sunset. One good thing about post-processing is its always possible to go back and redo images with your […]


Voyage through canal mist

A big thanks to Ellen for her kind texture feature on dpreview and a warm welcome to their visiting fans! Once again its the time of year for my favorite misty, foggy mornings in the Mediterranean! As soon as I open my shutters and spy mist outside, I need to work fast, as the sun […]
