My previous image was the same church as this one. However, unlike the previous image, there wasn't so many grapphic shapes and textures to show off in this one, so I decided to warm the image up and give it a nostalgic village type feel, which I think has been very successful. All post processing was done in Lightroom and if you want the before and after version of this so you can see exactly what I did, then check out the blog post for this image here... https://goo.gl/5tMeMP #photography #church #architecture #nostalgia #lightroom #hertfordshire #postprocessing

Cycling along a footpath, and taking photos as I go. A very nice way to take photographs and hone those compositional skills!

I just found this scene very peaceful, but I was there in the middle of the day, so the colours gave the image that middle of the day look, which is perfect for a stock photograph, but I wanted something that reflected what I felt at the time, and so I post processed it in Lightroom.

The full story of this image is in my blog post on my website complete with before and after versions so that you can see how it was done.... https://goo.gl/ETprfG

The image is always the boss. As a photographer you should always put the image first. What I do when I take a photo and look at it on my computer is to remove all of the in camera settings. This gives me a basic flat image as you can see in this example. Then I assess the image creatively to get the most out of the original composition. Most of the time I don't need to do very much. Othertimes I apply a lot of processing, it all depend on the image and my feeling for the image. In this example I went black and white, which I think worked really well. If you follow this link, it'll go to a page on my website that is full of other interesting examples with explanations... https://goo.gl/EdiK6T #photography #photoshop #lightroom #travel #travelphotography #

The sweeping vista composition Is the one with the foreground subject, leading into the middle distance and all the way to the horizon, where the light from the low sun bounces around perfect clouds. What the photographer ends up with is a beautiful photograph full of colour that is very easy on the eye. You cannot however, paper over the cracks of poor composition just by introducing Golden Hour colour. Nothing can replace good composition, and the classic sweeping vista composition ensures that you will create exactly that, a perfect compostion that is easy on the eye, where the eye is gently ushered into the photograph to explore the textures and shapes. Colour alone cannot achieve this... and here in this blog post are some tips on how to achieve success....https://goo.gl/A8FTgw

Visualization in photography stems from that magical moment when you say 'I bet that would make a good photo' Then you set about composiing that 'moment of inspiration'....There are many elements to creating a photograph that excites you and even gives you those butterflies in the stomach when you realise what a great scene nature has ooffered up, and then capturing that in a small rectangle. Visualization is one of the creative elements, that everyone has, but beginner photographers may struggle at first to tap into this natural ability....I go into much more detail here on my blog, and I would love for you to join in the debate too by offering your take, or asking me any questions that you may have....If you like th ephotographs on my timeline, then let me show you how to achieve your creative best too https://goo.gl/PhiBsX #visualization #photographytips #composition #photography #landscapephotography

The art of composition: Landscape photographs don’t have to be big wow factor dawn landscapes, they can be of mundane things, the skies can be dull or middle-of-the-day bright. If you are a beginner you should open your mind up to all types of outdoors photography so that if you do end up specialising, then you will give yourself loads of options. Composition in photography is everything and how compelling that roadside signpost looks will be down to your composition skills. The great thing is that those skills are highly transferable to all genres of photography. You also need confidence and you need to be enthused and inspired....read my how to guide and advice to help you reach your goals... https://goo.gl/aKbe8z #photographytips #composition #photography

Very few photographs actually follow the rule of thirds, and many people who say they do follow the rule, will move or distort the lines of the ‘rule of thirds’ grid in order to make the rule work. However, a lot of photographs place objects off center and maybe some or many will have one third sky or something like that....so the rule of thirds is working, right? Wrong! Sort of, I mean, I know that some photographers are emotionally wedded to the rule of thirds, it seems to have become a close friend to those photographers, but the rule is really just a teaching tool for photographers who are at the very beginning of their photography lives...To be truly instinctive, intuitive and creative, you really need to move on from the rule of thirds.....anyway what about symmetry? You know, where the left side mirrors the right side? Those compositions always work...anyway if you want more.....https://goo.gl/8EimYi #photographytips #ruleofthirds #composition

In the photo that I posted with this post, I set my camera up on a tripos and waited for a person to walk past the gap at the end of the narrow street. And one person duly obliged and I got the photo. But back at the computer the textures and details from the architecture overpowered the photo and drew attention away from the subject, the subject being the man at the end of the narrow street. So what to do? Well for one, th ecomposition is fine, there is nothing wrong with the way I framed the shot. I had to get rid of all of that texture and overpowering detail, and I did that by turning the photo into a nighttime shot by post processing the shot in Photoshop.

Some photos are correctly composed, but they are just bland to look at. But if you ask yourself what it was that prompted you to take the photo in the first place, you might be able to do something in Post processing in order to create something more in-keeping with what your minds eye saw. And that is exactly what I've done with this image of Corfe Castle. I've taken a daytime photograph, and turned it into a nightime photograph, which has the effect of lighting up the ruined castle, and therefore directing the eye to the textures and shapes of the castle rather than wandering around aimlessly in the sea of sky and blank hillside. So I haven't cropped the image at all. I've merely made lighting changes in Photoshop that now redirects the eye. The composition was fine, it was just the castle was competing with the sky and the hillside, and now it's not. https://goo.gl/EdiK6T #photography #corfecastle #photos #photoshop #postprocessing #postprocess

What I like to do if the light conditions are right, is to bag the classic landscape shot and then see what else I can do creatively speaking...It is, in my opinion, one of the greatest challenges in landscape photography to crack the code of those wow factor Golden Hour images. It takes time to learn, and mistakes will be made on the way. However, success is inevitable if you persevere, and yes, everyone who picks up a camera is capable of creating those wonderfull compositions....but when I've got the 'biggies' in the bag, how about something a little more unique to my personality? How about exploring my personal take on a landscape...And that is the other side of the classic wow factor coin.
Have a read of my blog post on this very subject...... https://goo.gl/A8FTgw
