Exhibition Picture 12 – Sweet Pea

Exhibition Picture 12 - Sweet Pea

After a short break we’re back with picture number 12 from our Peterborough Exhibition.

I’d love to say this is somewhere exotic but in fact it is a picture taken in my garden. Sometimes simple is very effective!

Exhibition Picture 10 – Flooded Path

Exhibition Picture 10 - Flooded Path

I seem to have let my promise of a picture a day from our exhibition lapse a little bit but never fear, before the weekend finishes I thought I’d sneak one in!

So here we are with a HDR picture called Flooded Path. This is Peterborough river embankment when it flooded a few months ago. It was quite by chance that I took a walk down there with my camera but I’m glad I did as I captured some great shots.

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.

Our First Exhibition

Well we’ve done it! At last, our first photography exhibition is up and running at Peterborough Museum.

There were times in the run up to this that I thought it may not happen. It has not been the most efficient of venues to work with, I have to say, but we got there in the end.

Image

As we are raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support through the exhibition it was very important to me that this should happen and I found at times the speed with which everything was moving i.e. slowly, very frustrating.

But as I said, at last it has arrived. The hours of hard work and determination have paid off and now we just have to keep our fingers crossed that we actually sell some items and raise some money.

Peterborough Embankment

Peterborough Embankment

We’re in Peterborough for today’s blog post and a trip to the river Nene and Peterborough Embankment.

Although the sky sums up the weather at the moment i.e. grey and stormy, it does add some extra interest to the picture.

Let’s hope for some sunnier weather soon and some brighter pictures!

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 🙂

Boats at Orton Mere – Revisited

Boats at Orton Mere - Revisited

Today’s post is another picture that I revisited recently.

A few weeks ago I took a trip to Orton Mere in Peterborough to do some photography but only had my small compact with me. I was pleased with the results but I didn’t feel I’d done the subject justice so I took another trip with my DSLR for some proper HDR shots.

This time both the sky and the reflections have really come alive and look amazingly vibrant so it was trip well spent.
