Now you all know I’m first and foremost a photographer .. a portrait and boudoir photographer predominately.. but over the last year I’ve been taking time out to gain skills in landscape and nature photography..
Also having won a number of competition with my landscape work I feel I’m doing pretty well! Like having my work shown at the fujifilm print life stand at the Birmingham photography show.
Now I know I’ve been doing short posts and running this is because I’ve been doing so many things I’ve not had time to do deep messages and long posts!
Well I’ve just started to add to that! Even more!
With a new section to my website and my Adrian Day YouTube channel this is going to be where I post tips, tricks and reviews of photography products and ideas to help all you guys and girls become better photographers and to enjoy the craft and the creative side of the industry.
But before I start posting videos and blog posts about this I would love to hear from others as to what you would like to see! .. I know what I look for but that’s me ! I don’t just want to post what I want to know .. I want to post at the needs of others !
See this could be anything for creative tips like using a prism or coloured lighting. Or it could be what I suggest to be the best lens for portraits or landscapes
It could be that you want to know about editing and how I edit my images using Adobe Lightroom or photoshop.. and what you want to learn specifically like colour toning or black and white conversion
Maybe you only have your phone to take pictures and that’s a perfectly great option as they say “the best camera is the one you have with you!” and want to know the best apps I use to edit the questions are endless!
But please feel free to comment below with your questions and I will write them all down and create future posts to answer your questions !
Also coming soon to help users of lightroom I’m going to start putting together downloadable products Things like brushes for photoshop and presets and Lut’s for both Lightroom and photoshop
These will be priced at silly prices ! So anyone can obtain them on the smallest of budgets to help them grow and learn faster! I currently have over 50 presets from colour to black and white! Ready to go! Just sorting out the website over the next few weeks to make them downloadable for you all!
There is so much more to come ! So if you have read this far please hit the follow button so that you can be notified when I post.. and as I say please leave a comment below if you find this page helpful and have a question you want answering!
Once again thank you everyone for your support and sticking with me over covid months ! It’s much appreciated!
BTW WHEN LEAVING A COMMENT .. YOU DONT NEED TO ADD EMAIL ADDRESS OR OTHER DETAILS BUT PLEASE LEAVE A NAME SO I CAN RELATE THE POST BACK TO YOUR QUESTION.. .. BUT PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT BE GREAT TO CONNECT TO YOU ALL!
This ones simple getting out to shoot will reward you more than you think!
You will get to know your camera get to know the basic settings and what you like in the way of photography
See there are many things you can do just walking about the streets or in the garden with you camera just to get used to it! And the modes your camera has..
Simple street photography
These are all things you could be playing about trying it don’t matter that your not using the camera in manual mode it’s about learning the basics of the camera and seeing what you like ! the rest will come we all have to start somewhere!
The good thing is in the world of digital photography there isn’t and problem in filling up a memory card with images to see how they look and then deleting the ones you don’t like! So much better than the days of film camera when you had to take the images send them away and hope that you got the shot you think you did!
This weeks it’s been about looking back at some of the images Ive taken and not actually used !
There are a number of reasons as photographers we keep a back stock of images that we have taken !
Not only to document what we are creating day to day or year to year!
But it’s great to actually take those images and bring them into the present day!
Now this might sound strange! But when we take these shots as photographers we are at a level that’s constantly changing ! We are always progressing and learning new things from styles to edits to poses!
It’s great from time time to time to take a day to look through you back stock and try what we have learnt to see if we can make something extra special from those files we put aside for a rainy day!
This week I signed up to a site for learning new things from lighting and editing to posing! And I feel I’ve learnt a thing or three !
So I got out the laptop and the hard drives and picked out a few images I’ve not yet edited!
To see the bigger pictures check out our Instagram page! You will see that there is a mix of edits ! That definitely captivate !
