A Parisien Post

A Parisien Post

Well, you wait months for a blog post and then two come along at once!

As I was adding some Paris shots onto our website I thought I’d share one of the pictures with you.

However, I am going to show my ignorance a little as it is a while since this picture was taken and I can’t quite remember the name of the actual building. So if anyone can help me then do please let me know.

I know that I was outside La Basilique du Sacré Cœur de Montmartre and this building is on the left as you face the entrance. I’m sure there are now people tutting and calling me all sorts of names but there we go – I’ll have to live with it.

It is again presented in HDR format and yes, I know for all you perfectionists that this ‘isn’t what’s seen through the lens’. However, I like the technique and as it’s my photo I reserve the right to present it any way I like 🙂

As I mentioned, I have just uploaded two new pages of Paris pictures so please head over to http://www.imjphotoart.co.uk and take a look (and before you tell me, I know Versailles isn’t actually in Paris but I had to put those pictures somewhere!)

You can also click on the picture and this will take you directly to my website.

So until my next post – au revoir.

Exhibition Picture 3

Exhibition Picture 3

Here we are with the second post of the day and the 3rd in the run of my exhibition pictures.

This is a HDR picture of the entrance to the Bishop’s Palace in Peterborough. Unfortunately it wasn’t a particularly sunny day when I did this picture but as we pretty devoid of sunny days at the moment I thought it best not to wait for one as it could be a long wait!

If you want to see the prints that are on display just click on the picture and you’ll be taken the exhibitions page on my website. Please consider purchasing one of my prints as we are donating 50% of the profits to Macmillan Cancer Support.

St. James’ Church at Castle Bytham

St. James' Church at Castle Bytham

Today’s post is staying in rural England and the village of Castle Bytham.

This is St. James’ Church in the village but with a HDR twist to it.

We’re going to be at the Midsummer Fair there on June 23rd so if any of you who read this are at all local or even visiting the country do come and find us.

The website for the event is http://www.midsummerfair.co.uk

Peterborough Cathedral – Revisited

Peterborough Cathedral - Revisited

My post today is another of my ‘revisited’ images. This one is Peterborough Cathedral where I’ve previously done a few photo shoots as the architecture and atmosphere lends itself to some great photography.

However, although I had given some of my previous photos the HDR treatment it wasn’t done in the 100% correct way (briefly – you take one pic under exposed, one normal and one over exposed then combine). In Photoshop it is possible to give a photo a HDR feel with just one picture – the results are OK but not the best.

So, I thought it was about time I stopped being lazy and went back and did these shots properly and even hand-held (it is recommended to use a tripod but I hadn’t taken mine!) the results, I think, are superb.

For more of my work and also for some of the original versions of the Cathedral pictures click on the photo and you’ll be taken to my website.

Have a great evening 🙂

The Cloisters., Peterborough Cathedral

The Cloisters., Peterborough Cathedral

Today’s first post is a recent picture I took of the walls of the old cloisters at Peterborough Cathedral.

The architecture of the Cathedral and it’s surrounding cloisters make for some truly spectacular images.

Notre Dame by Night

Notre Dame by Night

Today’s picture is another form our brand new Paris range – and an exclusive as not even on the website yet!

This is a night shot of Notre Dame Cathedral that has been given a HDR makeover. I think that it makes the image really striking and I was very pleased with the result.
