Working on old images and using Twitter


Over the last couple of days, I have shared more of our photography to Twitter, Viewbug and 500px.  All in all it is rather time-consuming.  I’ve been a member of these sites for a few years, especially Twitter.  So I thought it was about time that I utilised these social platforms for displaying our images.

The above photograph was taken at Lake Windermere in Cumbria .. and is of a jetty where small boats land.  On that particular day the weather wasn’t too brilliant.. and the rain clouds were looming in the sky.. but luck was on our side and the rain never arrived.

As an alternative I decided to process the same image in black and white… Personally I can’t decide which one I like the best… but who is to say that you can’t like both equally.  And enjoy viewing both images for their different processing techniques.

Another image I played around with over the last couple of days is one of a little pond by the roadside at Ashenbank Woods near Cobham in Kent.  By using Photoshop I created an autumn toned image.

For my last image.. it was one I took at Northward Hill Nature Reserve of a little egret, using my Pansonic Lumix FZ48 which has a great zoom lens on it.

I love writing a blog post now and again, but sometimes, I just want to post images.  I know I could just post images to this blog on a daily basis but that is something that I did before, and for me the blog became too messy and disorganised.  That is why I have created Portfolios for various locations and subjects.  So for now I will limit my posts to this blog and incorporate processed images to their respective portfolios and promote more of our photography on social media.
