I've been having issues with my macro lens lately, sometimes it works, sometimes it just causes an error on my camera. When It works I can capture some macro shots from the garden, which is nice as I like to make images out of everyday scenes that we may otherwise go overlook :)
Light trails are one of those things that you can capture pretty much anywhere there is a road or traffic. It's a great way to practice long exposure and night time photography, and the results can be spectacular. Below are a few superb examples of what can be achieved.
On a Sunday when nothing much is happening and the weather's not great I usually turn to experimenting with light and whatever I can find around the house or garden. Being late summer we have a few photogenic flowers left in the garden, combine these with the technique I describe in this previous article and you can capture some nice…
Although most of the time a photography shoot can be described as relaxing there are also those occasions where time is of the essence. A day trip to a location with the specific focus on capturing as many images is one example of when a few time management techniques will benefit your photography.
I have been reprocessing some of the photos I took on a trip to Bangkok a while back. Using some of the techniques I have mentioned in previous posts I have managed to produce some shots which previously I had discarded (but not deleted). It just goes to show that revisiting previous files can be a rewarding exercise :)
Countryside vista's are one of the most impressive, colourful and beautiful landscape images that you can take. With rolling hills, fields of crops that form a pattern to the horizon and the natural light from a setting sun, it's no wonder that these images are some of the most popular on the web.
Occasionally using unorthodox effects can turn an otherwise standard image into something which captures the imagination and draws interest. I recently experimented with motion blur within Photoshop on a previously taken image of bluebells in a wood.
