Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year guys.....try not to get like this! See you next year. 
New site coming.....

New Yorkers on ogle patrol

This took a little bit more processing than I usually carry out due to the extreme contrast that was present in what was, a grab shot. I'm happy with the way it turned out although it wouldn't stand being printed at a respectable size.

When Britain ruled the waves...

I spotted this single boat moored up on the Thames not far from where I live and I knew that it had the potential to be an 'oldie' so, back home, a quick application of a Lomo preset in LR3 followed by the application of a texture (you really do need to get yourself some textures - either download 'em or go shoot 'em) and a vignetting of the corners and I had my suitably aged sailboat.

Days of our lives...

I'm currently working on a project somewhat cleverly called 'A Day at the seaside' I know, right?
What I did was to take my little S90, sit on a bench, put the camera by my side and click away. Same spot. Never moved for about 30 minutes.

Canon -V- Nikon

This is a clever little action film in which all the guns are switched out to cameras. Good fun.

'Spot' the difference...

When you're next out taking shots, look for contrasts. I don't necessarily mean colours. Here, I've used young and old, fake and real to highlight contrast and it makes the picture that little more appealing.

Only the lonely...

I spotted this guy sitting alone at Charing Cross train station. The world went by as he sat, asleep, wrapped in his loneliness.

It must be a terrible thing to be lonely. Whoever see this, I hope your not. I truly do.

A Request

I know there are quite a few people 'lurking' around out there (my stats tell me you're out there!) so I would like to get your feedback on something before I commit to it properly.

I'm looking to start up a new site that will be part blog part video tutorial site. I think this will be much more beneficial to you my readers but I wanted to know how you feel about it. So, waddya think? Should I do it?

Please leave a yay or nay comment.

In the good old days

I spotted this scene whilst on walkabout in London one day whilst the missus was getting her hair cut. I immediately knew it had potential but when I started to process it, I got bored with it. I felt it would be better served if I made it look a tad older and so I dragged in a texture layer and then played around with just the blend modes until....voila'.

Two is better than one...

I wanted to show you how, with a bit of thought you can create an endless number of photographs out of one original (or, in this case, just two!). Play around...have fun....
