What do do in lockdown » Gale Photography – Fine Art Photography Article

What do do in lockdown » Gale Photography So here we are still in lockdown.  While the rules do allow us to drive to a place for exercise, photography might not be considered as exercise.  Given that, it’s probably better to stay in the house and garden if you are concentrating on photography. We have been blessed with some gorgeous sunny days recently, with plain blue skies.  The plain sky makes it easier to take simpler images.  I popped my…

This too will pass. » Gale Photography – Fine Art Photography Article

This too will pass. » Gale Photography I went for some exercise recently.  The lockdown rules in the UK allow the use of a vehicle to drive a “reasonable distance” to where a person will exercise.  I drove a few miles to the Ridgeway.  The car park I arrived at was empty, so I considered it reasonable to park there and walk.  It was a glorious day, and eventually I arrived at a place called “Wayland’s Smithy”.  It’s a Neolithic…

Macro lens + mobile means you can stay at home! » Gale Photography The cameras on mobile phones continue to get more and more accomplished, with AI and computational photography coming to the fore.  My Huawei Mate 10 Pro has both those features but I also have a nice low tech device that helps me make images.  It’s a clip-on macro lens made by Bauhn.  I got it as a Special Buy from Aldi for just £4.99.  I think it’s…

Things are looking up, and down. » Gale Photography – Fine Art Photography Article

Things are looking up, and down. » Gale Photography A few days ago I was out for a walk in the glorious countryside near the UNESCO World Heritage site of Avebury in Wiltshire.  There are various Bronze Age barrows/burial mounds in the area, (some as old as the Pyramids!), that are almost ignored due to the amazing Avebury stone circle and Silbury Hill nearby.  Quite a few of them have clumps of beech trees on them, and they are atmospheric…

It was a moving experience » Gale Photography – Fine Art Photography Article

It was a moving experience » Gale Photography Last week I led my final 2019 photography holiday for HF Holidays.  It was up in the Lake District at their Monk Coniston house near Coniston Water.  (It’s a curious anomaly that only one body of water in the Lake District is called something Lake, or Lake something – Google it).  The holiday was all about capturing movement; that’s camera movement or subject movement (or both!).  Our first exercise was all about…

The Crucial Role of the Smartphone Camera in a Photographer’s Pocket – Photography Article

Smartphones are not what they used to be. There was a time a few years back when I personally said that smartphone cameras have no place in the serious field of photography, but things have definitely changed. More and more, cameras on smartphones are becoming very much capable of capturing images with optimal quality, and while I still firmly believe that smartphones will never replace a DSLR or a mirrorless camera as a photographer’s workhorse, it’s about time that we…

Bye Bye Camera is an iOS App that Says Bye Bye to People – Photography Article

I don’t spend a lot of time with iOS photo apps, but this caught my eye for creativity and the technology used.  Point the app at a scene with some people, snap the photo, and after a bit of processing the people are gone. I’m sure most of us do this with our…
