Probably not the best idea ever but standing in the middle of a field during a storm is sometimes necessary. All images (except the tree) take using an 8mm Fisheye, the tree one is using a 17-70mm. Processed in Photoshop and Pixlr.
I've uploaded over 1500 photos to Flickr, it's my 'go to' photo sharing network. One thing that I'm not great at doing is organising my images. I don't use Lightroom or have perfectly catalogued folders of photos on my PC. However, I have recently managed to sort out most of my Flickr account using the helpful Flickr Stats and batch updates.
If you've been visiting FPR for any length of time you'll know I'm a huge fan of Google+. It's not a social network for everyone, but for photographers, it's awesome. To encourage those of you not using G+, and to give those of you that are a few more photogs to add, here's 20 stupidly epic photographers.
FPR's been around for a while now (about 6 years). There's over 600 articles of all types included on the site and each one takes time and thought to create. Starting a photography website isn't as simple as 'get hosting, upload photos, write something', it takes planning perseverance and time, lot's of time! Below are a few of the things I've learned about running a photography site which should help anyone thinking of becoming a webmaster.
There's wonderful photographic opportunities everywhere, you just have to keep your eyes open and see them. This scene is on the curbside of a main road, right next to a car park. 10617
Great skies in the south of England today. There's a mixture of blue sky with white cloud and then, 5 minutes down the road, dark stormy clouds. Great for the garden and photography!
Not great weather this evening (and I've had a couple of beers:) ) so I decided to capture a few images of some lilies that we have in a vase. It's great to use an external flash so you can record different ways in which light and shadow effect the scene.
