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

(image)

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.

on significance

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

(image)

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.

desert tracks #7

2016-05-02T08:17:27+00:00

(image)

Before I visited the desert near Dubai for the first time I had a rather romanticised idea about what I might find: rolling dunes, crystal clear skies, and maybe a camel or two. More than anything though, I expected a clean and pristine environment. That wasn't the case: there were motorcycle and dune buggy tracks all over the place - it looked like a carpark after a busy day, albeit a very sandy one. But every disappointment is its own opportunity and since that trip I've made a point of photographing the tracks in the sand whenever I see them. This particular set was shot in November 2013 during my Landscape Photography workshop for Gulf Photo Plus.

Dubai 2016 #10

2016-04-28T10:17:34+00:00

(image)

Another street shot from Dubai, and while I don't have much to say about the image itself it is worth mentioning that this one was processed a bit differently, i.e. I just used Capture One 9 - no Camera Raw, no Photoshop, no Curves - so the original you can see here is the RAW file prior to any changes in Capture One. Having done quite a bit of testing in recent days I suspect that a large percentage of my subsequent images will be processed in Capture One, as try as I might I can't quite get Camera Raw to produce an initial conversion that has quite the same quality.

Dubai 2016 #9

2016-04-26T18:11:27+00:00

(image)

When I first shot from the roof of the Four Points by Sheraton back in 2011 any image from there was a relative novelty. These days pretty much every photographer who has spent more than five minutes in Dubai has taken a similar shot to this one but I did think this one was worth sharing.
