A Fresh Start and Time For Something New...

Well this is my new blog, reading this introduction may take five minutes out of your day but if you’re an avid photographer as I am I think you will get a lot from this blog.

My aim is to upload a new, interesting and exciting image every day of the year, these could include pictures of Nature, Still life, Experiments, Portraits, old photographs of mine re-mastered so to speak, basically anything that I snap I will share with you, through this I am hoping to capture the interest and imagination of a wider range of photographers so that tips, advice and opinions can be shared.

This page will be run along side my other blog (http://leeharrisonsnaturephotography.blogspot.com/) but unlike my nature photography this blog will be run with more of an artistic influence, this may entail editing in Picasa, Paint or Photobucket but under every picture, I will write the technical information of how the camera was set when the picture was taken, if any filters were used etc. the inspiration or ideas behind the picture and editing that has been done, I will also write down any tips that I think might help; this way fellow photographer might be able pick up advice or tips that can help them progress and develop their skills.

I have been into my photography for many years now but only seriously for about two years so I still consider my self a beginner and I am willing to listen to any advice that can be given to help me to improve my pictures; So I urge and plead that any viewers or followers to comment on pictures, leave pieces of advice whether it is general to photography advice or specific to a picture any will be welcome.

To start with I will leave my comments un-moderated so you can use them for discussion purposes but obviously if any obscene comments are made I will have to change this.

Well Thank you very much, I hope that you all get as much enjoyment and advice out of this blog as I wish you all to.

This is my opening image, an experimental shot that I took a few weeks back whilst visiting family,

Photobucket

I set my camera up to capture the darkest possible image,
Lens: sigma 18-200 @ 200mm, Aperture: F.40, Shutter Speed 1/4000, ISO: 100.

This was a totally experimental picture, my idea was to create a totally silhouetted black image back lit by a spherical orange sun, I am very happy with the way that this photograph came out but I imagined it darker in my head.

After I had taken the picture I opened it in Picasa up the shadow to increase the darkness of the silhouetted, upped the sharpness to crisp up the edge of the silhouetted and slightly adjusted the saturation fade in the brightness of the sun.
After I had edited my picture, I uploaded it to photobucket and surrounded it with a square black and white border then rounded off the white border to it full circumference.

I have recently invested in a set of Cokin filter set, so next time I take a photo like this I will use one to darken and help emphasise the spherical shape of the sun.

Thanks Lee Harrison wishing you Happy Days and Happy Snapping.
