Digital Photographer tearsheet

It's quite nice when some photos you've had for some time get to finally be seen by a wider audience. A couple of dusk shots from Kathmandu, Nepal were featured in the latest issue of Digital Photographer magazine in their travel feature which was cool. The light from mopeds and street fires cut beams through the dusty air, it was a pleasure to shoot but required patience, just waiting for the right moment to reveal itself, for a face to move into light or for the dying light of the day to peer down the narrow streets. Some of the building in these pictures are gone now, no doubt destroyed by the earthquake earlier this year.

Royal Navy campaign work

Some shots of my recent campaign work for the Royal Navy on the Royal Navy site and their social media channels. I've had a couple of requests to do one of these for my own kit so I'll get one up in the next week or so.

Low key portrait -Jo

Bit more light in this one, and then some VSCO presets for Nikon to get the shot processed right.

Low key portrait - Michaela

Been playing around with low key portraits of late (of my partner, naturally). Simply get one source of light, focus on the highlights with the eye catching light and the process in LR with a dash of PS and you're done. The great thing about this technique is it allows you to capture a striking image virtually anywhere that has a single light source in very poor light conditions.
