- A cloudy December Sunday
in the Livradois Forez -
Sometimes the weather is not very motivating to go out with your camera, like last Sunday, the weather was grey and dull.

4-Shoot in RAW

I have found a really cool website quite by accident when i was looking for ways to add depth to the colour in my photos. I had gone out to Eastham with Chris to photograph autumn colours and i didnt use a polarizing filter. The website below had a tutorial which worked really well and […]
Fantastic photos from this competition, i think my favorite is the photo of the colony of gharials, i love the fact that the babies are sitting on her head!
