The French Alps. Mountains and snow through my lens

The Mountains of France The end of this year had a nice surprise, a week in the French mountains near Saint Gervais in the Mont Blanc region.  An email I received, offered a return trip out to these mountains with food, board and travel all included for quite a good price.  How could I resist?  Passport, snowboard, boots and camera equipment packed, off to Dover …

Some Instagram Pointers

Understanding a bit about Instagram can help save a load of wasted time, especially when the expected hundreds of followers do not appear.  Everyone has their own reason to use Instagram, some to show off their photography skills, others to get thousands of followers and potentially make money.  So let us have a look at how this app functions. I have used the below ideas on …

Post-Processing: What is this mysterious art?

There seem to be two groups of people when it comes to Photoshop and the idea of post-processing a photo, those who do and those who do not agree with the idea of ‘photoshopping’. What is Post-Processing in Photography? We hear the various buzz words thrown around like Photoshopping and Lightroom Presets, but what is it we are actually doing?

Consider this scenario.   We have been out, taken our …

Shutter speed and aperture are fairly straightforward to understand, the size of the whole to let in light and how fast we the shutter opens and closes.  So, ISO, this little acronym stumps a lot of people but how I see this might help. Last night I had one too many drinks and got a little bit light headed and blurry eyed, the effects of cheap wine, …

Wales with a Visit from Storm Aileen

Two things spring to mind when I think of Wales, sheep, and dramatic mountain scenery and after last week, I can now add a third item to the list, Storm Aileen.  Somehow, in the previous 48 hours, I had managed to miss the weather forecast, and this little oversight made for quite an interesting evening. Googleing around before I left East Sussex, I found a …

Blooming Marvelous: Wakehurst Place in Colours

Tucked away in the Sussex countryside, there is a smaller relation of Kew Gardens, Wakehurst Place. I have visited these gardens a few times before, but this time I decided to capture some of the amazing colours I usually see.  I have chosen what stood out to me, although there is a huge amount of plants of all shapes and sizes from around the world, …
