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!

‘Lockdown’ we have all be hit in some way shape or form, by this hard hitting restriction.
Businesses, life in general has had to change! And we have been left with no other choice, but to change with the times.
Since this all started and the world was hit with lockdown, the photography industry has really taken a hit. Not being able to get your subject infront of the camera
Weather it’s a simple portrait or a wedding we can’t be in close proximity, though we have found ways to still do some forms of photography. The way it’s been done has be much more virtual than we would like.
I’ve personally found it so hard not being able to get clients in front of me. It’s hot my business very hard and not just that hit my creative side too!
I have been pretty lucky that I’ve had enough back stock of images to keep me socially active (social media busy)
Just as we have started to get back to business it’s looking like there will be further restrictions to business! And this will most definitely include photographers.
As photographers we we have to change with the times. Every day can be different and that’s with out the world being on lockdown. Times are hard for everyone. And we are all facing life changing actions.
In my next post I will be posting 5 tips to keeping a little business flowing in while we are unable to shoot! And to help keep our creative side going .
Please join me on my covid-19 lockdown journey ! By following my social media pages and this blog ! There will be a vlog coming soon too! Let’s all help each other in these dark business times!
I’ve added a few of the latest images to grace the social pages and the editing room below!
