I designed this poster last night for something to do. It was quite easy, but I did make a mistake and then saved it. Mistakes are easy to correct, before you’ve saved, but not after! I managed to correct the post code. (more…)
We went to Moorcroft Wood in Moxley (Walsall) to take some photos. This is the Walsall canal and the bridge across to Moorcroft Wood. In previous articles I said to use a narrow aperture for landscapes to get depth of field. (more…)
This is Moorcroft Pool in Moorcroft Wood, also known as ‘The Sanna’, because there used to be a sanatorium on one side of the wood. It’s much bigger now as three pools are formed into one. It wasn’t like this when I photographed it a couple of years ago and so I captured a little history. (more…)
We have more snow, here in England and so I thought I would cover editing snow pictures a little more. I edited this this one with PhotoScape and used the option to make it look like a pencil drawing and added some text.
Fact supporting fiction
Last week, I used my ‘Body in the Sanna’ picture to start my blog. A picture can paint a scene. I’ve used a picture of ‘the Sanna’ again this week. The Sanna, is actually Moorcroft Pool in Moorcroft Wood. People have always called it ‘the Sanna’ because of the isolation hospital that was nearby. That was a hospital for infectious diseases like smallpox.
