Editing for a better picture #photography

In the old days of film photography, any post shoot editing was done by a technician in the processing lab. Now we can do our own editing on the computer. Editing has become as much a skill as the photography with every laughter line getting edited out of portrait photography! (more…)


Photography: creating a picture

A well known photographer once said you don’t take a picture; you create a picture. Some photographers think of it as art, not just a working skill. (more…)


Christmas Eve: Dickensian thoughts

Manor House Merry Christmas

It’s Christmas Eve and during Christmas, I tend to think of the year that has just gone by and the one that is about to start. I write articles here on WordPress and on a Zillion ideas and some of those get featured on the Express and Star website (my local newspaper) and these get syndicated on The YamYam. (more…)


The Sunday Ramble: the last day of Autumn

Black Country pictures (3)

The Winter Solstice

It’s the winter solstice today when it will get dark quite early, it’s the shortest day. The actual time of the solstice is around 10pm this evening and so I think that means this is the last day of autumn and winter starts tomorrow. According to the BBC the nights will start getting lighter, but not the mornings, not until in the new year. (more…)

Swans on Swan Pool, Sandwell Valley Country Park

When it’s not raining we still seem to have grey skies. It’s the summer solstice on Friday and so maybe things will improve with the coming of summer. This picture shows clearly how the grey sky reflects on water and makes that grey too. (more…)


Photography: Black Country landscapes

The weather hasn’t been too good for landscape photography, but I took a few pictures this week. I was going to Tipton Carnival at the weekend, but I wasn’t well and so stayed at home. I would have got soaked anyway! You can find a lot of nice landscapes around the Black Country, you just have to pay attention. (more…)


Neodigital Art: More artistic edits

1 art edit

This image is quite artistic, but not very complicated to create. I have bought a new speedlight (flash) and so I tried it out to see if it would provide some fill in light on these leaves. It wasn’t quite as good as I had hoped for, but I made the image lighter and added a frame and it looks okay now. (more…)
