In December 2011 I was contacted by Steve Harnell, the Operations Editor at ‘Practical Photoshop’ magazine, after he saw one of my images ‘Communication’ on the Photoradar website, where I posted it ages ago and promptly forgot all about it. Steve wondered if I would like to feature on the Image Re[......]
I was commissioned to write this article for the journal of one of the sub-groups of The Royal Photographic Society, the Visual Art Group, founded in 1921 “to foster the interest and advancement in all matters relating to Pictorial Photography”.

This is one that I did a while back but I thought it was worth writing about the technique I used to create this image.
Emily was a relative of mine on my Mother’s side of the family, and I liked this portrait of her looking ever so slightly self-conscious,

I have been asked by a couple contacts on Flickr about the making of this image, so once again here is a break-down of the different components used, and stage I went through to reach the finished article.
The first stage was to combine a lighter exposure with a darker exposure, so I pasted the[......]
Having spent all afternoon on this image, I have decided once more to share how I did it, and which individual images went into making the final artwork. I started with a self-portrait taken recently in the New Forest, using flash diffused through an umbrella, one of the first that I have ever done[......]
I have recently been experimenting with multiple texture overlays in CS3, to create slightly more abstract images as I start to move down the path of Fine Art Photography, and a comment from one of my friends on Flickr has prompted me to write this piece. Jeremy said “I have no idea what I’m look[......]
