A shoot at this fantastic location at the north end of Felixstowe.
Hi there – I drove up to Castell Coch near Cardiff yesterday and managed to not get a decent shot of the castle. But I did shoot two or three nice woodland scenes. This is just a three minute video which you might like. If you do, a “like” in YouTube really helps the channel.
Now, back to editing my pictures from Venice.
After quite a few grey days, the forecast for the next morning was great, so at 04:20 I set an alarm and went down to the harbour for some blue hour and sunrise photography. I was pleased to find the tide was out but there was still some water across the harbour. This meant that the boats were not afloat (and therefore liable to move on the water during long exposures), and the sunrise was a treat.
I used three separate photos to make this image. Hit the link to see how I did it.
Subscribing to my channel would seriously make my day!
We spent the weekend in Suffolk. We couldn’t get on a preferred campsite so we ended up in a budget hotel for a couple of nights. Yesterday I got up at 4am and headed to South Beach in Lowestoft for the sunrise. I was great to feel the sun on my face, the breeze in my hair and listen to the sea as it settled on the beach before retreating once again.
Here’s another YouTube video, this time on how to edit pictures with the Orton Effect that can give pictures a lovely warm, ethereal glow. I hope you enjoy it.
After 12 weeks of lockdown, we took my mum to Felixstowe for a couple of hours on a glorious day. I managed to grab a few pictures of one of my favourite subjects.
In this penultimate video (5 of 6) in this series of basic editing workflow tutorials, I show how the Hue, Saturation and particularly Luminosity (HSL) of the colours in an image can be individually changed to enhance the feeling and impact of an image.
So here is Part III of my introductory / basic level Lightroom workflow tutorial. This one focuses on the the basic controls of exposure, contrast, shadow, highlights, whites and blacks. Hope you enjoy it. Feedback welcome.
Here’s Part Two where I discuss how to affect the White Balance in your image and also how changing it can have a big difference in the overall feel of the image.
