Cloudy Sunset

Castle Acre, Norfolk, looking towards the Priory, not the sunset my son and I had hoped for, but the cloud did offer a brief opportunity to capture some images.  HDR images created with 3 exposures (0,+2/-2), taken with a 1.2 ND Grad filter, and processed in Canon’s DPP software.

Cloudy Linslade Landscape

The last of the mist lingers in the field below the trees, as the cloud forms from the early morning, thick freezing fog.  I’ve processed this in HDR to bring out the details of the sky, and you can see the movement of the cloud in the top of the image, even though there was a split second between exposures.  I processed the 3 RAW exposures, (+2/0/-2), in Canon’s DPP software and finished editing in PSE.

Motorcycles Photography Book

I’ve put together a small softcover photobook (7″x5.5″ / 18.3cm x 13.8cm) of some of my motorcycle images, taken over the past few years at various locations and events, courtsey of the Photobox ProGallery resource.  I like to get creative with these types of images, and often play with off camera flash/under-exposure to get a particular look and feel, or focus in on detail.

Warp Speed

Playing with some ideas using a set of LED lights, I thought these looked like something from a sci-fi film 🙂

Cascading Hearts – Exclusive Valentine Cards

I need to start thinking ahead more with my commerical photography head, so in preparation for Valentine’s Day I’ve created this exclusive range of cards available from my online store.  The hearts in these designs are photographs of our blue LED christmas lights, and not heart shaped at all!

Waves Crashing on the Shore

2nd/3rd Jan 2015, Milford-On-Sea, UK.  I love the sound of the crashing waves. I shot these using my Canon 90-300mm lens.

Sunset Follow Up in HDR #2

The second of my recent sunset images processed in HDR.  I use Canon’s DPP software to create the additional 2 exposures (+2/-2), having shot the original image in RAW, and DPP’s HDR tool.  I finished processing in PSE9.

Sunset Follow Up in HDR #1

I’m really please with the sunset images in my last post, and while some might say leave well enough alone, I thought a couple of the images might lend themselves to a bit of HDR processing without looking too over the top.  Here’s the first one.

South Coast Sunset

Visiting family on the UK south coast, I had a welcome opportunity to try and capture a sunset, those in our part of the UK haven’t really given much of a show this Autumn/Winter.  However, on this ocassion nature didn’t disappoint.  From nearly 200 exposures taken I selected 21 to submit to Alamy, and am extremely pleased that all have been accepted for my stock images.

Catch Me If You Can

I love the challenge of photographing kids, and find, like in many situations, the best images are those candid moments, albeit making it tricky to get the focus where you want it when they won’t stop moving!  Here are a few images I took of my nephew at his 4th birthday party, my favourites are taken with the Canon 50mm F/1.8 lens giving a lovely shallow depth of field,  making him ‘pop’ out of the picture.

December Sunset

Happy New Year everyone!  I’m catching up on processing images taken during the Christmas period, and for the first time this Autumn/Winter I’ve had the chance to capture some decent sunsets.  Here’s a couple of images from the first, taken 29th December at Tiddenfoot Waterside Park, Leighton Buzzard.

Sunrise Light Trails

Monday was the first frosty morning in our part of the world, so I just had to make the effort to go out for a sunrise shoot.  I’ve been aiming to get to this location for a while, and have been waiting for the right conditions.  Later sunrise times certainly help too!
