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. However, portrait photography is not in our forte... perhaps it is something we might consider doing once we become more confident and experienced in our photography skills.

The above image started out… being rather bland and lacking colour. And I wanted to make those roses more apricot in colour… so …

A hint of colour

  Today I wanted to try something different… I wanted to turn a black and white photograph back into Colour…. I processed my black and white image mainly in Lightroom, however I did resort to Photoshop to remove a stem which was protruding through the main  flower.   When I had finished creating my black and …

Buttercup colour flowers

A photograph of yellow flowers taken at Lullingstone Castle Word Gardens… what attracted me to these flowers was the buttercup colour of the petals.. The original photograph was shot slightly under-exposed and I was rather concerned as to whether I could bring it back in Lightroom and Photoshop… I did use my ‘Deep and Moody’ Preset …
