Quick Tip – Using The Flow Control in Lightroom

  https://www.youtube.com/watch?&v=l3AMavaU5uU One of the sites that I regularly visit in Scott Kelby's Lightroom Killer Tips.  And this particular tip I have found very useful.  The tip is about using the Flow Control when making local adjustments.

Scale WordPress Photo Challenge

Scale is the topic for the Weekly WordPress Photo Challenge for the Week beginning the 11th October 2017, and I have only just got around to processing a photograph for this particular challenge. As I said in my previous post I have a lot of catching up to do. 😀 😀 😀 And for my [...]

Layered WordPress Photo Challenge

Layered is the subject for this week's photo challenge curated by WordPress.  And there is nothing like the layers of branches on a tree full of red coloured leaves like this one at Sheffield Park Gardens, taken only last week. Sheffield Park Gardens is one of my favourite places to visit.. I love autumn colours, [...]

Windows WordPress Photo Challenge

It is Wednesday evening and a new WordPress Photo Challenge called Windows has just been set.  And to be perfectly honest the weather is dank and miserable here and my garden is not in a very good state at the moment, so I thought for this challenge I would think about the kind of view [...]

Waiting WordPress Photo Challenge

Honestly, that was me yesterday... Waiting to get some peace and an afternoon nap...  You see the day started out with a loose kitchen tap... yes it needed tightening up and I got a phone call from hubby saying, 'If you clear the under-sink cupboard out and find the monobloc spanners, which are in the [...]

Corner WordPress Photo Challenge

The topic for this week's photo challenge is called Corner and you are asked to type of corner evoke emotion within yourself.  Well for me it has to be corners in Architecture.  Especially when you have such great architecture like the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco with its columns and the intricate mouldings [...]

Rework of a Little Egret

Back in 2016, I processed a photograph of a Little Egret which I took at Northward Hill Nature Reserve and processed the image in a blue wash.  Today I decided to rework that image.. and the first thing I did was to flip the photograph horizontally. I wanted to do this image in black and [...]

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. [...]

Strolling around Rochester – Street Photography

Over the weekend at Rochester in Kent was the Medieval Merriment Festival which was held in the Castle Gardens, not far from the High Street in Rochester.   With Knights in armour, and period traders, this event gave me the perfect opportunity to practice my Street Photography. And because there were tourists there I didn't [...]

Creating Watercolour Effect Photography

On Sunday we took a trip to Sissinghurst Castle... in Kent.  Albeit under protest at the last controversy surrounding the outing of a squire as being gay, which I didn't approve of.  Anyway we decided to go and I shot this photograph of some red flowers and wanted to see if I could create a [...]

Textures WordPress Photo Challenge

Textures are all around us... whether it be leaves on the ground, or the bark on an old tree.  We don't have to look far before we find textures in a variety of objects. We can also add textures to an image to create more depth.. textures can come from many places, paving slabs, bricks, [...]

Satisfaction WordPress Photo Challenge

Satisfaction So what is satisfaction?  For me it is when I accomplish something that I only dreamed of.  Like taking a photograph and transforming it into something else. My original image was this deep cerise flower. Even though I liked the original image I wanted to create something different and the colour I had in [...]

Reflecting WordPress Photo Challenge

Another photography challenge set by the WordPress Photo Challenge theme is called Reflecting where they ask you create an image with a reflection. And for my submission to this theme I have used a twirl photo I created and sent it to Photoshop, where I created the reflection by using layers, layer masks and blending [...]

Bridge WordPress Photo Challenge

This week's WordPress Photo Challenge theme is called Bridge.  WordPress ask you to post a photograph of a bridge.  To me, a bridge is something that takes you from one place to another.  Whether it be a void, a river, a road, or a walkway.  And for this week's subject I decided to use a [...]

Delta WordPress Photo Challenge

Well I am still trying to catch up and last week's WordPress Photo Challenge called Delta and WordPress asks you to share a picture that symbolizes transitions, change, and the passing of time. For me there is nothing up change going on with our coastlines here in the UK.  What with coastal erosion and rock [...]

Out of Focus – WordPress Photo Challange

Here I am busy catching up on the Weekly Photo Challenges set by WordPress every Wednesday. Sorry for them not being in date order but the first challenge that I missed and which caught my eye was the theme Out of Focus. Not everything has to be in perfect focus... and one Photographer's Work which [...]

Evanescent Photography Challenge

Again we are at that point in the week where I participate in the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge and this week's topic is Evanescent.  And in true form.. I am two days behind. 😀 😀  Well I suppose you can't expect anything less from me at times. One meaning of Evanescent is: soon passing out [...]
