My lovely daughter.

The 2 pictures shown are of my daughter. The top one is the fully processed shot, underneath is the untouched Camera Raw original, straight off the camera.
The purists may argue about techniques but I see the camera as part of the process in producing an image. I was brought up using chemicals in a darkroom, limited by techniques and materials and shut away for hours on end.

Now, as you are aware....things are so different.

You must ask yourself "What do I want to achieve?"
Then allow your creative talents and abilities to flow until you reach the point of contentment and satisfaction.

You are either with me or against me.Smile

I drove past this billboard for the new film 'Paul' and couldn't resist going back to take the shot.

This was taken today, mid afternoon, using my 3 Cokin graduated filters.

I'd also forget to set my image capture quality to RAW so this was taken using small JPEG. This meant i didn't get to fiddle with the image very much.

A much calmer atmosphere from previous occassions.

Ultravox - Remembering Eden book

This book on Ultravox due out soon includes articles and photographs documenting the bands success in the 80's and I believe there is even a section devoted to my small place in the band's history.
