Soft Petals from Belmont House Gardens

Sometimes you get a photograph and you have shot it either at the wrong angle or there is just something you don’t like about it.  The photograph from above came from this photograph straight out of the camera, pictured on the left below. But with a bit of cropping and a slight twist of the angles …

Canary Wharf…

Last night (Saturday) was our second night photography trip.  Our time for photography is limited at the moment which is more the pity, so the only real-time we get is evening times on a Saturday evening.  Anyway, we decided this week we would drive up to North Greenwich and photograph Canary Wharf. Hubby used to …

Well you have all guessed by now, my forte in Photography is fine-art… I love adding texture and I love playing around in Photoshop.  But one of the things that I find hard is masking, especially when you get a landscape photograph with lots of trees and lots bushes, and how to refine that mask. …

Apricot Rose… of Riverhill

Sometimes you take a photograph and it just doesn’t turn out like you wished or envisaged… and when you get home and go to process that photograph you feel really disappointed.  Up until recently I would discard these photos, but lately, since I have been using Collections in Lightroom, I have kept these photographs.

Leanne Cole on her blog runs a Monochrome Madness theme every Wednesday.  She asks people to submit a monochrome image and then showcases all images in a Gallery.  It is a wonderful theme and I have followed so many inspiring blogs by photographers from around the world, because of this particular theme. People to showcase …

Last night, on site called Peta Pixel, I watched a video about photo-stacking and how you can change focus points and then make an image clear through focus blending using the photo-stacking method. It is used primarily for macro photography where you have a shallow depth of field and your subject can be out of focus in certain …

Big Ben

When we first started out in Photography… we didn’t know a thing…  We knew what a camera was but honestly that was about it.  As for RAW, JPEG, f/stops, ISO and shutter speeds, well they were things that went straight over my head. It takes some getting used to, learning that the smaller the f/stop …

As many of you may have gathered, lately I have been doing a lot of photographs of flowers we have taken and added a black background to them.  Yes you could use Photoshop, create a black background and then mask out the flower… But what if you don’t have Photoshop of Photoshop Elements and only …
