  1. Making Photo Books

    23 Dec 2020

    “You are looking at an illuminated screen, it’s a new viewing experience, although it’s like a medieval stained glass also, the light coming through the image makes it a little jewel.” Joel Sternfeld There is nothing “wrong” with a screen as the final output… BUT As good as images are…


  2. Learning - Larry Fink on Composition and Improvisation

    14 Nov 2020

    I have talked about my love for prints and books previously. In these difficult times, a couple of workshops I have had in mind haven’t been possible and so I have looked to other methods of learning. There have been some really good live webinars around, including with Joe McNally…


  3. Choosing Capture One or Adobe Lightroom

    05 Dec 2019

    Post processing software has been on my mind this week, yesterday Capture One 20 was released and I have just finished listening to Derrick Story’s podcast, which I highly recommend, in which Derrick discusses photo editing applications.

    30 Jun 2018

    Why Street? I wrote a few words on why I enjoy travel photography back in November. As you will probably know if you have followed me to this blog, my main interest for many years has been what is now described as street photography. I do street photography (I prefer…


  7. Landscape Photography - still learning!

    29 Apr 2018

    The learning curve is steep, but I am really enjoying trying something different. The big difference with my landscape photographs is that I “went there” to take photos, almost all of my other photography is opportunist, I was there (or close enough) anyway. Generally it’s really relaxing, normally a nice…


  8. Landscape Photography - Learning

    14 Sep 2017

    Out of my comfort zone Aside from family photos, I mainly take street and travel pictures, in fact even my travel pictures are largely people based. I want to continue to develop technically and whilst I have a high level of technical knowledge, I am trying to learn off-camera flash…
