Our Latest Blog Posts

Welcome to RyanPhotography, we hope you enjoy viewing our latest blog posts and please feel free to comment.  Photography for us isn't just a hobby it is a passion.  Learning new techniques in processing as well as learning how to photograph different objects is something we thoroughly enjoy.   For us, Photography is our way of getting out and about... we love to visit stately homes as well as formal gardens.  We photograph a broad range of subjects, including landscapes, flowers and architectural buildings.

Country roads… take me home

This photograph was taken by St Margaret’s Church in High Halstow, near Rochester, Kent and composed of 6 photos at different exposures.  I then merged them in Photomatix and added an autumn tone to the picture, by using a preset in Photomatix and once the photograph was re-imported back to Lightroom I then adjusted the …
