Photoshop Manipulation by Tim Hill

Has a broken rib improved my images?

OK, maybe a silly title with a little bit of click bait in there but let me explain how breaking a rib could very much help my finished images in the future. I have not been able to work for the past couple of weeks due to breaking a rib while working in blizzard conditions, when we really should not have been out and in a situation where I could break a rib to start with, but that’s another story.

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 […]

You can use leading lines to draw a viewer’s attention to a specific part of the […]

Rule of thirds photography tutorial

Rule of Thirds

When I bought my first DSLR camera and took up photography seriously, in a pleasurable sort of way of course, back in 2013, two tutorials on YouTube/basic rules of photography helped me the most and once understood instantly took my images from snapshots to images people liked and commented on. This post covers one of them – “THE RULE OF THIRDS“, in my next post I will cover the other one “LEADING LINES“. Some photographers online will attack the rule […]

Brimham Rocks Yorkshire

Photography in Brimham Rocks

A great afternoon with the camera walking amongst an amazing collection of weird and wonderful rock formations. Brimham Rocks are balancing rock formations on Brimham Moor in North Yorkshire, England. The rocks stand at a height of nearly 30 feet in an area owned by the National Trust which is part of the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Geologists have dated the rocks at around 320 million years old. A large river originating in Norway, and passing through the […]
