Happy Easter

Have a very Happy Easter

Happy Easter to you and your families.  Maybe some of you are going away to the coast, to a local Easter Event or just enjoying a long weekend at home? Whatever you are doing I hope the weather is kind and you have a great time with your family, for me, that’s one of the things Easter is all about, family. As a family we are doing the Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt at Nostell Priory in Yorkshire this morning, if […]

Ribblehead Viaduct Photography Tim Hill

My image on an album cover by Nickolay Fedorenko

It’s always great to see my images put to good use but when Nickolay Fedorenko from Russia first contacted me, kindly asking if he could use one of my photographs of a train going over Ribblehead viaduct for the cover of the current album he was working on, I was a little surprised I must say! Nickolay speaks excellent English and kept in touch throughout making the album. World in Your Hands by Nickolay Fedorenko I would like to congratulate […]

Car Wreck

Photoshop Manipulation – Car Wreck

Photoshop manipulation is never easy but wow, that took hours! Having finished, I am so proud of myself. The large full resolution version of Car Wreck looks cool, one to keep and frame. I am sure somebody more used to photoshop manipulations could do the above image in half the time, I was in no rush and paid attention to detail, I wanted to get this one right and I am pleased to say came bloody close, eventually! All credit […]

Photographers who inspire me – Gary Gough

The good thing, if I can find one, of being at home after breaking a rib after a fall in the snow, is having time to think about photography and all the great people who teach and inspire me on a weekly basis through platforms like YouTube. Currently, when I need inspiration I look no further than Leeds based, professional Yorkshire photographer Gary Gough. Back in 2017, Gary decided to set aside one day a week away from his busy […]

Leading Lines a fundamental part of photography

Along with the rule of thirds, leading lines is one of those common sense rules in photography that, once understood and used, can transform your images overnight, from dull to interesting. Leading lines come in many forms from picture to picture but all are designed to take the eye of the viewer through the image and keep the viewer looking longer, so adding interest. You can use leading lines to draw a viewer’s attention to a specific part of the […]
