How I Photographed Osaka and Tokyo

For the early part of February 2019 I spent 12 days between two Japanese cities. Osaka had already been visited in November of 2018 but Tokyo was a new one for me. Both cities offer many observation points both open and closed and its these which attracted me as I wanted to time lapse them as best I could. As always though the weather was a challenge but that is what you have to put up with at times. In […]

How to Choose the Correct ND filter for your DJI Mavic 2 drone

If you want to know how you choose a ND filter for your DJI Mavic 2 Pro drone then take a look here. The latest DJI Mavic 2 Pro does give us an adjustable aperture but once you get past f5.6 then then the image and footage quality gets kind of sketchy. But this is where ND and polarizer filters can help us to slow down the shutter speed so that our footage retains that nice motion blur needed at […]

How to Blend Exposures in Photoshop for Landscape and Travel Photographers

Learning how to blend exposures easily in Adobe Photoshop needn’t be a challenge. From simple exposure blending using the gradient tool to more advanced exposure blending techniques, Adobe Photoshop provides us with a variety of ways and means to blend two images together. This week’s vlog isn’t just a case of following along but I also explain some of the workings of the techniques so you understand the techniques in full.

Gloves for Winter photography – Vallerret Photography Gloves Review

What’s the best gloves for winter photography? I don’t know how many pairs of gloves that I’ve gone through. Nice expensive gloves from outdoor shops to a cheapish pair of gloves from a garden store where I could remove part of the glove to access my fingers. But in every case they just didn’t do the job in hand. The job that I need to do as a landscape and travel photographer means that I need the use of my […]

How to edit LANDSCAPE photos with Adobe Lightroom & Adobe Photoshop

Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop form the backbone of any landscape or travel photographer’s work. The majority of use either or them or both in conjunction with one another. In this week’s vlog I wanted to show some of the processing techniques that I do in order to create a finished file. And I say some as there just wasn’t enough time to show everything that you “could” do to an image. Post processing is a personal thing. Everyone has […]

Landscape Photography – Wild weather in Dorset

On the 10th December 2018 I had a day spare during a brief visit to the UK. Never one to miss an opportunity I thought I’d go out and about in Dorset. But of course the British weather likes to have a say too and the forecast was wrong. High winds that were supposed to subside during the day only got worse. Although mentioned in the vlog about visiting Portland Bill to see the waves it wasn’t worth it. The […]

Travel Photography – Japan Autumn 2018

The 17th to 29th November 2018 saw me travel half way across the World to Japan. To Osaka to be more precise. During 12 days I found autumn colour aplenty in Kyoto. Amazing cityscapes in Osaka. A beautiful lake with many temples and a strategically placed torii gate as well as going to the island of Miyajima. Now, as it was my first time there I was concentrating more on my work rather than vlogging. So this is a half […]

Landscape Photography – Dolomites Autumn 2018 Part 2

*Note that I didn’t intend for this to be a simple film of the Dolomites. I did intend to vlog but just didn’t get the time. The 5th to 13th September 2018 saw me back in the Dolomites. Yes, for the 5th time I was photographing this mountainous area of northern Italy. Why? Because from the 19th to the 26th October 2019 I’ll be running a workshop there and I want to make sure that all the groundwork is done. […]

Dolomites Autumn 2018 – Part 1

From the 5th to 13th September 2018 saw me back in the Dolomites. Yes, for the 5th time I was photographing this mountainous area of northern Italy. Why? Because from the 19th to the 26th October 2019 I’ll be running a workshop there and I want to make sure that all the groundwork is done. The Dolomites are known for being a very photogenic area of Italy and they didn’t disappoint this year despite the weather being not so kind […]
