Week 14: – The Invisible Man

Out this week on a walk to take my 14th 52 Week Challenge photo with my friend Dez we decided to use a stream to create an interesting effect. A double exposure, one with Dez in the photo and the second without him, leaving only his shadow and boots to tell you there's someone standing in the water. The only problem was that the boots

Week 12: – Where am I? – 3

Ok this is the last week of the 'Where am I?' challenge. This week, Stacey, Dez, Helen and I went for a walk in a nearby village. This was our starting and ending point...the question is...where did we start our walk, and in which village? Again, all the photos were taken in the same location. Answers on a postcard, or on our facebook page. --

Week 6: – Like Father Like Son

So, this week's challenge is still all about using photoshop, photo manipulation and editing images. This week I found some incredible work by another photographer called Ulric Collette who has been merging family members photographs together in a project he's called Genetic Portraits. Inspired by these somewhat intriguing, slightly mysterious and sometimes if I can admit it a little 'scary' photographs. I decided that I

Week 5: – Desperate Borrower Housewife

Well, it's the new year and we're working in photoshop this month, and as part of our 52 Week Challenge my lovely wife Stacey volunteered to become a Borrower for the evening. With her recently acquired sewing machine at hand we devised a plan. Stacey posed against my studio background for the original photos, giving us a nice clean outline to work around, and the

Week 4: – Magical lights

Tonight, my last attempt at creating a burning man effect paid off! Although not quite your classic 'burning man' effect, it certainly (I think) looks quite wonderful. The way it seems like I am caught in the middle of the lights swirling around me is what I wanted to achieve, a slightly magical, all in camera with no photoshop effect. Hope you like it! The

Week 3: – Light trails in Stoke

More playing with light this week, and as its Christmas time we're visiting family up in Stoke today so here's a beautiful cityscape I've called 'light trails'. Unfortunately the car park we used as a vantage point wasn't quite as high as I'd thought it'd be and so the foreground was taken up by trees, but the traffic passing the city centre was regular and

Week 2: – Double Exposure

We're still playing with light this week, Stacey and I decided late last night to capture some special effects with the use of a flash gun. So we headed down to West Grinstead, where a disused train tunnel, now a part of the South Downs Link Cycle Path, provided a great location for photo shoot. Both photos have only been cropped, and no other post

Week 1: – The ring of Fire!

So....for the first image I'm going to publish from my 52 week photography challenge, this is "The ring of Fire". Night-time photography for me is all about adding light to usually dark situations. And that's usually the inside of a church hall, reception venue or something of that sort, which involves shooting with flash, which I can't say I care much for. So for this

North Africa Trip and Toubkal

I'm sorry if you've tried to be in touch this last week, I've been in Morocco on a climbing trip. My brother (Dan) and a good friend, Chris decided we wanted to take some time out to climb one of the highest mountains in Africa. Jabel Toubkal is the second highest in the whole of Africa at 4,167 meters above sea level, it's no mean

Southwark Cathedral – London HDR

I was up in London today taking photos of the 'Powder Flow 2011' conference. Although the event itself brought together many of the leading minds in powder flow science from across Europe I was certainly not one of them...and the seminars I heard went straight over my head. So to blow off some steam, after being crammed full of scientific knowledge, as well as biding
