Miranda Sensorex EE 35mm slr camera

This is the final post in my current series on the Miranda cameras in my collection, hopefully not because I won’t ever buy any more – just because I’ve caught up with the current state of my collection.

Walk around the suffolk countryside

This is a post highlighting a series of pictures I took on our recent holiday in Suffolk in the UK. I took these pictures on the first full day of our trip when we went for a walk in the local countryside around the village of Horham which is about 5 miles from Eye, to explore a bit.

A tilt-shift lens is one where the […]

Typical Lightroom processing steps.

In this post I’m going to outline my typical Lightroom processing steps I go through to take an image from the initial RAW capture to the final image. This is as much an aide memoir to my future self as a guide to others, and in no way is this the only sequence that could be used.

How much should we post process ?

I’ve been taking photographs for many years. First with black and white film, then colour film and slides and now with a DSLR. Although processing was a part of the process with film and involved all sorts of techniques to improve the final image, I have always said to myself that I don’t do processing of digital images. I’ve always thought that I try to take the picture as I see it and don’t want to spend hours with photoshop […]
