Originally published 8/9/22 – Digital, obviously. I have a friend who has around 100 vintage cameras, he mostly shoots film and says that the images are better. I have a Nikon SLR from the mid 90s (that only came off auto settings in 2022!). We agreed to shoot each other, in a studio, using hisContinue reading “Analogue or Digital?”
Photography competitions can be a great way to get your work out there. Many are free to enter, and could result in some exposure (no pun intended) for you and your work. If you are entering competitions it makes sense to review previous winners, check the rules – e.g. must have been shot within theContinue reading “Photography Competitions”
First a disclaimer: I am not really intending to criticise any company just to pass on personal experience that others may not be aware of. I signed up with a photography social media site a while ago and licensed some of my images royalty free. This means if anyone buys the image they only have toContinue reading “Selling Stock Images”
Originally published 19/4/22 – Taking photos of people in public places “There is no law preventing people from taking photographs in public. This includes taking photos of other people’s children…Unless the images which have been taken are indecent, no one has the right to: ask a photographer to stop ask for a copy of theContinue reading “Thoughts on photographing in public/private places. “
Originally published 16/4/22 – As I have continued studying for MA Photography at Norwich University of the Art and continued my work in Portraiture, I have been taking portraits outside, sometimes with people I know and sometimes walking up to strangers and asking to take their portraits.

I usually managed this by adjusting red/orange/purple/magenta sliders in Lightroom’s HSL Panel in the develop module. The colours were never perfectly reproduced but they were adequately reproduced.Continue reading “Colour Profiles 3…”
Originally published 20/1/22 – Since the blog post “Colour Profiles” back in Sept ’21, Adobe Lightroom has included Camera Matching profiles for my camera – this now means what I see in the viewfinder or on the camera screen should now match what I see in Adobe Lightroom. Indeed, the colours are now closer toContinue reading “Colour profiles…again”
Originally posted 18/12/21 – Inspired by my work and reading for my ongoing MA Photography at Norwich University of the Arts (NUA), particularly by photographers such as Richard Avedon & Annie Leibovitz, I have been doing more and more portrait photography. While landscape photography requires work – getting up early, climbing hills or mountains, dodgingContinue reading “Portraiture”
Originally published 28/11/21 – As a digital photographer, I have found it very easy to take lots of shots (too many…?), after all the costs are minimal or even zero. During a recent shoot, which was important to me and to the client, I found myself taking far more than should have been necessary –Continue reading “Photo Challenge”
Originally published 7/9/21 – Disclaimer – I’m sure this post would be no use to an expert in colour profiling.
