Venice Canals

2016-10-11T20:56:42+00:00

(image)

I'm heading off to Venice tomorrow to run our Experience Venice: Three Day Photo Tour. We have a small group, which is great, but it looks like we might have some challenging weather - storms are forecast for Saturday. Expect moody black and white shots with bouncing rain and umbrellas :-)

I must have processed this shot at least ten times since I shot it back in April of this year, and up until today I couldn't come up with a version I liked. This one I'm happy with.

dead end

Yes, it's a composite: one shot from Dubai, the other from the Ash Sharqiyah region of Oman, taken during one of mine and Issa's trips to my favourite country in the Middle East. Both the originals are visible when you hover your mouse over the 'Show the Original' link at the bottom right of the image.

I thought it was about time that I got out and shot something new, and I'm glad I did, I like this one. It was also a lot of fun to process - masking around that aerial was quite therapeutic ;-)

untitled #182

2016-09-30T17:34:51+00:00

(image)

I haven't posted anything on the blog for ages, so thought I'd share another of the images I shot during one of my GPP workshops earlier this year.

In other news, we've just opened up our new mentoring programme to 12 new students. If you're interested in improving you photography, postproduction, or both, take a look.

Dubai detail #1

2016-06-30T16:27:08+00:00

This isn't quite abstract enough to be unrecognisable, but I like that it's not as immediately obvious as some of my other shots of Dubai.

Gay Pride Blackpool 2016 #2

While pretty much everyone enjoyed the Blackpool Pride Festival there were a handful of slightly less cheerful folk.

Gay Pride Blackpool 2016 #1

2016-06-12T09:15:30+00:00

(image)

Three portraits from yesterday's Blackpool Pride Festival in Blackpool, all of which were shot with the Fujifilm X-T1 and 90mm f/2 (my new favourite lens). As always, it was a great event, with lots of great characters.

The Prince of NuNu

I really should explain this one, but I thought it might be more interesting if I didn't.

on significance

2016-05-04T20:37:40+00:00

I remember reading somewhere that if the earth was shrunk to the size of a pool ball, or a pool ball expanded to the size of the earth, the earth would be the smoother of the two.
