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 […]

Ferrybridge Power Station Photograph

Ferrybridge Power Station

Talking about cool, I set up and framed my shot, then took around 12 shots as sunset turned to night. By the time I had taken the last shot I was bloody freezing from stating in a cold wind for almost an hour. On the way home in the car a had hot […]

Printed in the Royal Academy of Music 2018 diary!

Of course I jumped at the […]

Pastel Painting by Julie Hazlewood

A pastel painting of one of my images by Julie Hazlewood

What a nice surprise when Julie Hazlewood (hazlewoodjulie at yahoo .com) messaged me on Pixabay saying she had just done a pastel painting of one of my images and did I want to see it. I was so flattered that Julie liked my image enough to inspire her to use it as the subject of her painting, who wouldn’t be! Julie has recently got back into painting and pastels are very new to her but she is really enjoying it. […]

Focus Stacking, Stock Photos & Paper Images

Focus stacking is something I had not thought about since starting photography in 2013. I have never felt the need or remembered to shack images while out shooting.  That was until photographing at Spurn Point last weekend. I was photographing old wooden sea defences in the immediate foreground and a lighthouse in the background. Even at f/16 something would have to give and would not have been sharp, then I remembered focus stacking. I took a two-shot stack, one with […]
