Theme Troubles

As you may notice, I'm using a stock theme at the moment, and I haven't uploaded this weeks photo, this is because my theme decided to mess up on me! I'm gutted, I spent hours sorting out the old one, but on the bright side, you can all look forward too TWO weekly photos, and a bright, new theme!  

Sorry for any inconvenience, It's annoying for me too, but I have a lot of exams this week, so I can't fix it till the weekend, let me know if you have any suggestions for changes this weekend! :D

Winter Lights 4:52

So today, we have week 4's photo!  This shot was taken in Aztec West (again), I really like the contrast between the sky and the lantern, with the dark shades giving it a nice winter feel!

To edit this on, I first edited the sharpness, and then adjusted the levels, the contrast and saturation, then afterwards, I added a layer of blur behind the lantern!

Tell me what you think of this weeks photo, and good luck with your photos in the week to come!

Exposure And Shutter Speed

Today's Article is all about Shutter Speeds and Exposures, The first thing you need to know, is that all cameras have a sensor, and the sensor is what the light hits to produce your image, but the light needs to pass through a shutter, and the amount of time a shutter is open, to allow light to hit the sensor for, is called shutter speed, or exposure time!

Cogs and Gears 3:52

Time for this weeks photo!        This one was taken just out of the way of Temple Meads train station, I  passed this walking into the town, It looked amazing, the light had hit it perfectly, it looked even better in real life,  but there you go, week three!

Nights at the Traffic Lights 1:52

This is my first photo of the weekly photo challenge, and you know what?  I hate it.

Happy New Year!

It's an new year, and a new challenge for your photography!

This year, I'll be taking the Weekly Photo Challenge, and it's pretty self explanatory, but pretty much, you have to take a finished photo every week, and this year, I'm doing it!  I'll upload my weekly photo to the blog, with a full write up of what I did (with the full technique in a separate article) and where it was taken, along with how I edited it!

I look forward to sharing my work, and hope you can take the challenge with me!
