Stageworks Grad Show, 2021

Here are the end of year show pictures. There are 250 pictures taken in the studio. Given that this year there are no shots at the PAC, I am not sure how much interest in these shots. Let me know and I’ll try and work out a suitable package. Thanks to Michael and the Stageworks family for once again welcoming into the studio to see the excellent performances of these talented actors, singers, dancers.

A new video about using photography filters

I made a fairly long video (25mins!!) – In it I discuss the four main physical photography filters, and whether you need them all. I also show how to blend bracketed images in Lightroom and Photoshop and demonstrate graduated and radial filters in Lightroom and show how you can use make the filter more targeted with luminosity mask.

20 Ideas for photographers in lockdown.

Following news that the current lockdown was going to last beyond early March, I realised that I wasn’t going to be able to celebrate my birthday down to Cornwall, like I usually do. Frankly, it put me in a bit of tailspin, so after a few days, I tried to look for some positives, and came up with a list of 20 ideas to spark some creativity for photographers like me, fed up with being locked down. I hope you find the video useful and that some of the ideas might help you creatively or give you some inspiration. Let me know. Thanks!

Setting up a Fuji X-T3 for landscape photography

When I was down in Cornwall in early December, my camera took a tumble and it couldn’t be fixed. Thankfully, my insurance company (Direct Line! Many thanks) provided a like-for-like replacement. In this video I show how I set the camera up ready for landscape photography (which due to the latest lockdown may not be for sometime!). Instead I stand in my garden talking between the cars and trains going by on the road outside and showing how I’ve set it up.

I hope you enjoy the video.
