[ad_1] Look for images everywhere! » Gale Photography I look for images everywhere, but the trouble that it can delay my non-photographic life.  Here’s an example: Last week I was going back to my car from shopping at a local supermarket.  I pushed my trolley towards the trolly park and saw a long row of other trollies.  I saw a pattern, and wondered what they looked like viewed from a low angle.  It was easy to pop my mobile phone…

[ad_1] Putting the graphic into photographic » Gale Photography This is a post about composing your image.  Some folks go on about the so-called “Rule of Thirds” as if it was the law.  Spoiler alert: it’s not!  By all means compose your images carefully, but don’t get caught by the “it’s the rules” trap.  Sometimes images cry out to be treated as graphic design rather than a record of what’s there. Take this Christmas present.  The box was made from…

First (Street) among equals? » Gale Photography – Fine Art Photography Article

[ad_1] First (Street) among equals? » Gale Photography Last weekend I was up in Manchester for a social event.  I stayed in the First Street district, which is all shiny new office and entertainment buildings.  There’s a lot of glass, and a lot of rectangles.  I popped out one morning with my Lumix TZ-100 compact camera to try and capture the feel of the area. Some of the architecture is a bit disturbing, such as this, the INNSIDE hotel.  It’s…

Our eyes don’t see in rectangles » Gale Photography – Fine Art Photography Article

[ad_1] Our eyes don’t see in rectangles » Gale Photography I don’t know about you, but my eyes don’t see things framed by rectangles.  Cameras, on the other hand, do see in rectangles and we have to take that into account when we take a photograph.  Having forced the view of the world into the rectangle defined by our camera sensor, you can use the edges and corners as strong compositional elements.

[ad_1] [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H9rL6C-uF4Y] When you use Lightroom, do you edit globally or locally?

In a video released this past weekend, Heaton shows his viewers how his Lightroom workflow has slowly but surely evolved to include only two or three global adjustments in total.…
