Expect the unexpected.

While trying to take a picture of a Ducks Bum in Canon Hill Park (Birmingham), two Coots decided to photo-bomb me by running across the water in front of the camera!
I’m actually grateful that I was using a slow shutter speed so the speed and blur of the coot is fantastic.

Editing & Photoshop

I admit it, every photography I’ve posted on this site has been adjusted though Photoshop.
In the opinion of most photographers this isn’t a bad thing, as with traditional photography the skill was not just in setting the camera controls, but in the developing the image in the darkroom; and this is no less important with digital cameras in the modern era, to bring out the best in any image you take.

Sunset in New York harbour.

I was reminded tonight of my trip to New York after an e-mail from friends whom I meet up with in that great city last October.

As i’m unable to return there for the foreseeable future (unless someone wants to take me there as their personal photographer), i trawled though my photos from that visit, and decided to develop this one in Photoshop of the sun setting over the Staten Island Ferry.
