A brief look at the Multiple Exposure option for in-camera results.
I love the software that is available to photographers in these digital times - and I'm quite happy to make use of it. Indeed, I make use of plenty of software programs including Lightroom 6, Photoshop Elements 14, Affinity Photo, The Nik Collection (largely because it's free) and Topaz Studio with various 'pro' adjustments which … Continue reading Getting the Effect In-camera
Oh dear - already I am apologising for my absence. I had intended to update this blog once a week but, well, spring happened and the sun came out and I was out and about and in the garden. I love to photograph all sorts of things but I usually settle back to flowers and … Continue reading Back from the garden . . .
Looking at the Creative, ICM technique.
I must stop reading things. It only leads to bouts of curiosity!

I think we now acknowledge that if you shoot in raw, you need to do some kind of … Continue reading To Fiddle – or not to Fiddle?
I admit to often leaving vases of flowers around the house for far too long - much to the frustration of my poor, long-suffering partner.
