Neodigital Art: creative photography and editing

Walsall Park

I took this picture in a park and it’s not very interesting. The important thing, with a lot of nature pictures in parks and woodland is the separation of the different colours. Most of the picture can be different shades of green, so you need  the difference to show, rather than all blend in together.

Simon James took this picture but he doesn’t like my edit. I’ve removed most of the colour! It reminds me of the work of Constable and Turner.

I took this picture with my Fujifilm S5600 a few years ago. I think it was 2009 and it was just before a storm. It looks quite spooky now.  The editing seems to have worked well.

This was one of those early photos taken with the Fuji too. It seems quite good even at 72 dpi, but I can get better resolution with the Nikon in good light.

This is a recent photo at 400 dpi and I think you can see the better resolution makes a difference but it’s not that noticeable on the internet. I am doing a photo that will be enlarged to 30 inches wide and that  needs to be at 400 dpi, in the right proportions (2,000 px by 3,000 px) and I have put a border around that will be wrapped around a frame because it’s being printed on a canvas.

It doesn’t really matter how good your camera is for the internet. You can edit your images and create art or do whatever you want to. Just experiment and be creative. What do you think? Please comment or you can follow me on Twitter.

  1. Mike, You’re making it so tough today! Each photo is very compelling. I really like your edits of Simon’s photo. So powerful.

    The pub looks amazing. I bet that’s a fun place to visit.

    I still like the church photo the best though. The photo and the editing are both great!

    • Hi Carolyn,
      That pub is over 500 years old. I once worked behind the bar. I was under age so didn’t last long! People do come from overseas just to visit some of the older pubs. The church is just up the road and even older. On the site of a castle that was built by a warrior princess. The church photo was one of the first that I took. I remember driving through a storm that day. I was in a hurry today and so used a few older photos, I don’t have newer ones with all the rain just lately!

      • That church picture wouldn’t be the same in bright sunlight!

      • I made the church lighter and then gave it a blue tint. I would have liked a little more light. I would probably take a few shots with the Nikon and switch the flash on for at least one of them. Dark photos can be done with a wider aperture too. The Nikon has a better sensor and I can change the white balance for cloudy and the ISO too. I had some photos too bright in terrible weather the other day!

  2. Your photographs are the best examples of creative photography and after that editing.
    It would be understandable the whole matter by viewing the photographs and that’s the creativity which i can see on the above. God Bless Mike.

    • Hi Prasun,

      Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment. I think with these images I was lucky to have the right subjects. I am getting better images with the Nikon too. Editing is so important if you want nice images for whatever purpose.
