Adobe Photoshop’s Sky Replacement Tool – Does it work?

Adobe have recently released a new feature in Adobe Photoshop called Sky Replacement. This tool is designed, however rightly or wrong, to help you replace the sky in an image. If you haven’t learned Adobe Photoshop’s various ways to blend images then it can be useful but only to a point. What I’ve found is that it isn’t as all singing and all dancing as you might expect. That it’s still far better to put some time and effort into […]

Foolography Unleashed Review | Control Your DSLR From your Smartphone

My latest vlog is a review of Foolography Unleashed. This bluetooth device allows you to control your DSLR from your smartphone. Foolography were kind enough to send one to me to review and see what I think. But they haven’t asked for a review that must be positive or whatever else. I am giving you my thoughts on this so it is a genuine review rather than one that must meet certain requirements which other companies do tend to ask […]

Travel Photography | Exploring France – Gothic Cathedrals and Abbeys

Gothic architecture is everywhere over here in France. In this episode of Exploring France I photograph four separate Gothic wonders in central France to show you the beautiful sights there are to behold.

Vendôme Abbey is the earliest example shown here with its stunning Gothic Flamboyant style […]
