I had not realised I had not posted on here for so long, but i have been very busy working on an exhibition and photography course and a web site (a new side line). So just to fill a gap here is a shot taken last week while I was up in the Lake District, it was taken on the other reason I’ve not blogged much, my new Nikon D7000.
Finally got around to sorting out a sales site for the pictures, now all I need to do is up load and sort 1,000+ images.
Other work in progress is a 5 week photography course, this is due to start in February and although the bulk of it is already written I will find my next few weeks very busy rewriting bits and compiling the photographs.
For the last bit of work in progress look at the image below, an attempt at a change in style, trying to bring more darkness in to my images.
Well after ticking over for 2 years this blog finally gets to be put to it’s intended use. The photography business is now full time so this blog will be used to up date the world on what is going on, or at least the things I can talk about. I will also try to link it to Facebook to make its as interactive as possible.
So the first item of news is that the business web site, Brett Trafford.com has had an update, the site is an on going project and the last changes finish stage 1 (i.e. all the pages now have something on them). The next stage is a page dedicated to my corporate customers and also an on-line check out, once I’ve decided on who to use. read more
I have wanted to write a post on how to create HDR images for quite some time, in fact since the last post on this blog in September last year, but when i got around to researching the subject i found that there are loads of very good tutorials out there. So instead of spending loads of time just rehashing the same subject i thought i would do something a bit different.
When i first stumble across a new technique in photography it is usually not in the form of a how to guide, but just a random image with no explanation of how it was done. So my first step is to Google it. In the case of HDR images loads came up on the search and a few lead to some great how to articles. read more
No matter who you are or what level you take photos at, you will find that you always take better photo of a particular subject than anything else. If you take lots of photos and try to photograph different things this stands out more quickly than if you only take a few shots a year and mostly of the same type. My unknown speciality only came to light when shooting photos for my blog, I noticed that I tended to do better shots when shooting water with loads of reflection in it. So identifying what you do best is just a matter of looking at all your photos and seeing what looks the best and then seeing if there is a link. read more
