Spring forward: Fall Back
Yes, we put our clocks on an hour early this morning and supposedly lost an hour’s sleep. Did I remember to spring forward? Of course, I did. I set the clock on the central heating an hour forward, did my watch and my alarm clock. I didn’t sleep very well and ignored the alarm on my phone … (more…)
We had a little sunshine at the weekend and so I shot a few landscapes. I have been trying to promote local events, especially charity events, but landscape photography is more relaxing with its beautiful scenery. (more…)
Today’s picture is of the River Tame. The bridleway runs along side of the river for a few miles and comes to Forge Mill lake. When I was young I would have walked along there or cycled. It’s a bit more of a struggle now, but I can still enjoy the scenery. Our behaviour and our ideas change as we get older. (more…)
I want at least one picture to submit to a summer art exhibition, perhaps next year. I’m thinking of shooting all river and canal pictures. This was taken on the River Tame on Sunday. I did the edit with PhotoScape. It’s unusual because the river has flooded recently. What do you think? Exhibition material? (more…)
I’ve come to the end of my art week and so I thought I would start today with an artistic edit. You never know, pictures like this might be displayed in the art gallery one day. We could launch a whole new school of art from here in the Black Country. We could call it, “Flyin’ Pigs”. We could do worse…
Neodigital Art is about editing pictures to create something with emotion. I was quite annoyed when I took this photo, because the sun had gone behind a black cloud. I’ve used colorize in PhotoScape for an artistic edit. What do you think?
The river in the picture is the River Tame. This photo was taken last May, but I drove past there yesterday and the flowers are just starting to bloom again. They seem to grow all along the Tame, I’ve seen them at Walsall and Dudley.
The snow pictures that I took, all look good. If the sun is quite bright, lots of light is reflected off the snow and you get this blue effect to the photo. You can add a little blue to the picture, if it’s ‘too white’. The snow will also reflect light from street lamps, but the pictures will be quite dark later in the afternoon.
Whatever we are writing, we need inspiration. I find my inspiration in all sorts of places. This photo was taken near my home and it’s interesting because the river has a dam across, that acts as stepping stones, but also helps store the water behind it. There is no litter around there, which is surprising, because this is not in the English countryside as you might imagine; but in town. (more…)
Looking for depth
I set the camera on landscape for this shot which gives a narrow aperture and some depth of field. The shot in is focus and there are a lot of interesting colours. I couldn’t get anything in the foreground though to give the shot depth. I have edited and made the photograph darker to get the colours right.
