Adobe Subscription Cancelled

Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop Subscription Cancelled – After being married to Adobe products since around 1998 and more recently being a loyal subscriber to the Photoshop & Lightroom CC Photography Package via monthly subscription, this morning I have finally ended the relationship and been billed by Adobe for doing it. For those of you that do not know what’s been going on at Adobe over the past month, these videos will bring you fully up to date. So this morning […]

Misty Morning Through The Window

Misty Morning Through The Window

Misty Morning Through The Window, What do you do when you are not able to get out of the house and photograph? Easy, get the camera out of the bag, put on a long lens and see what you can find on a misty morning through the window. That’s what I did this morning anyway and I’m quite happy with the results. The sun was just starting to burn through the morning mist, I thought the trees at the side […]

So, Why Did I Abondon Social Media and Many Friends?

A: Family, Photography and health… I am not proud of the way I left social media and the many friends I let down and left wondering if I was OK. To those, I now say I am profoundly sorry, friends will always be thought of and remembered as friends, some I have known through photography and social media since 2013 when I bought my first DSLR. The day before Christmas Eve I spent 12 hours reading and replying to social […]

Ferrybridge Locks and decommissioned Ferrybridge 'C' coal fired Power Station

Switched from Nikon to Fujifilm

Switched from one camera system to another is something I see all the time on YouTube and quite frankly it bores the tits off of me, yet here I am doing almost exactly the same, please bear with me… It took me over a year and some photography work to earn enough to buy a replacement to my much loved Nikon D7100, but the money was only half the story, my biggest headache and torment was what to spend my […]

Whitby Goth Weekend and the words ‘NEED’ and ‘WANT’

Hello all, let’s start the weekend off with a few pictures I recently took at Whitby, North Yorkshire. It was Halloween weekend which means it was the famous Goth Festival and the town was full of Goths and Steampunk’s in all their spooky and splendid glory, some of them looked fantastic, others just plain scary but that was the idea, all where lovely people and all too willing to pose for us photographers of which there were many! A good […]

Social Media – Friend or Demon?

When you have the rug pulled from under you like many photographers and I just have after the crushing announcement that G+ is to close for good next year, you can be forgiven for thinking of all social media platforms as a bit of a demon, I certainly did and I was ready to leave the lot for good a few weeks ago. How dare Google delete all those friendships forged over the years and all the days of your […]

Crystal Ball Photography

Crystal Ball Photography – my latest toy and project

Crystal Ball Photography or Glass Orb Photography is certainly nothing new and has been done to good and bad effect by many photographers before. That said it’s something I have never done before and a challenge I am really looking forward to experimenting with in all weathers and locations. Here is an affiliate link to the crystal ball that I have purchased https://amzn.to/2wEiNZ5 if you use the link it costs you no more but I get a few pennies to […]

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 […]

Printed in the Royal Academy of Music 2018 diary!

I am thrilled to have one of my images printed on a double page spread in the 2018 diary/calendar of the Royal Academy of Music London! Felicity from the Royal Academy of Music contacted me out of the blue saying they had used one of my CC0 images in their 2018 diary and wanted to know if it was possible to have my home address to post me a copy as a thank you. Of course I jumped at the […]

Yorkshire Photographer Tim Hill

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 […]

Scarborough North Yorkshire Tim Hill Photography

Mild Autumn Weather for photography in Scarborough …

I am with the family at Scarborough, North Yorkshire this evening. The family and me arrived here on Friday even via Bridlington and the coastal road past Filey to avoid the crazy A64 in rush hour. The gamble worked and the trip here was a real pleasure.The sunset on Friday evening did not happen, well it did but not so you would notice. This was fine, we had been working all day and ready for a rest and something to […]

Photography motivation slowly returning, roll on Autumn!

To ask if any of you go through a time of year when photography motivation is flat and just not there would be pointless, myself and many of my friends go through it every year. For some, it happens just before Spring, this year for me it has happened in Summer. Sunrises and sunsets are too early and late and the landscape is one big sea of green. Don’t get me wrong, I love Summer, I am talking purely from […]

Tips that helped me learn photography

Like many new photographers before me, I started in fully auto mode. Looking for basic compositions and lining things up through the view finder was all my little brain could handle at first using the Nikon D3200 which was my first DSLR. Even in auto mode, I felt out of my depth, I joke not. Tip Number 1 – Start in fully auto made From day one of owning a DSLR camera, I was inquisitive, how did other photographers blur […]
